Quinton Lucas Career and Achievement
In 2015, Lucas won a city council seat representing the Third-District-at-Large, gaining more than 70% of the vote. His message was concerned with bridging the cultural and socioeconomic gaps between the eastern and western areas of the city. When asked about the greatest challenge facing Kansas City, Lucas said, “How do we get people from jobs in my part of the city, the east side of Kansas City, off into other parts of the city or even to Kansas?”
Housing policy became a primary focus once Lucas joined the city council. He advocated both the development of new housing supply and the renovation of existing properties. Lucas played a decisive role in shaping a 2018 ordinance that defined affordable rent as equaling 30% or less of the city’s median income, which was then $1,100 a month. In an interview with the Kansas City Business Journal, Lucas said that “$1,000 a month is still pretty high for a lot of people, but what we’re trying to do is say that we will not give incentives based on affordability standards for units that are north of that figure.”
During discussions surrounding the finance and development of a new airport in August of 2017, Lucas advocated for transparent municipal decision-making by calling for fewer closed Council sessions. He told The Kansas City Star, “I think the spirit of the Sunshine Law is not for council to deliberate on myriad issues on public policy in secret.”
Mayor of Kansas City
In the 2019 mayoral election, 11 candidates ran to replace term-limited incumbent Sly James. The field later narrowed to Lucas and fellow city council member Jolie Justus. Lucas won after receiving approximately 59% of the vote.
On March 10, 2020, Lucas attempted to vote in the Missouri Democratic presidential primary, but was turned away at the polls because a worker mistakenly entered his name as “Lucas Quinton.” The mayor used the incident to highlight the importance of voting, and his tweet describing the situation received over 13,000 likes. He later returned to the polls and successfully cast a vote.
In late August of 2020, citizens organized a petition to remove Lucas from office, but were unsuccessful. These petitioners criticized Lucas’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and said that his mask regulations were harming the city’s small businesses. ( Source Wikipedia and News Websites )
