Mark Funkhouser feels OK about parks board slapdown

No one will accuse Mayor Mark Funkhouser of worrying too much about other people’s feelings.

On the day after he scolded the Kansas City Parks and Recreation Commissioners in front of a reporter, Funkhouser had an opportunity to make nice. But the mayor stayed true to his Vulcan nature at a press conference at the city’s Health Department on Tuesday.

Asked about his meeting — in which he reportedly faulted the commissioners for not showing sufficient enthusiasm for his ideas and criticized their handling of a citizen-driven effort to put a dog park in Waldo — Funkhouser chose to remain adversarial.
