I photographed a fundraiser at Meers Advertising in the Crossroads District for the Sly James campaign for mayor of KCMO. Lucky me I managed to get a photo of Sly and the Kauffman Center in the same shot, though I didn’t notice it until looking at the photo on the computer monitor. First one…

And two others of Sly from the event held Tuesday night, March 1.

I also had gone back in the Kauffman Center yesterday for further photography just prior to this fundraiser event, so I’ll have some new interior and on-site Kauffman Center shots again soon.

Last night I attended the watch party for Sly James, one of the primary mayoral race contenders in Kansas City, Missouri. Incumbent mayor Mark Funkhouser was unseated as Sly James and Mike Burke were the top two finishers in the primary, advancing to the general election on March 22 for holding the seat of Mayor of Kansas City Missouri.

After the crowd at Californos Restaurant in Westport received word of James’ advancing to the general election, Jason Kander – Missouri 44th District House Representative introduced Sly and he took the podium.
