Tim Person, is your host for this episode of the kdhx podcast Tangazo, with another discussion on the importance of the upcoming November the 8th, midterm elections. ———

Our guest for this episode of Tangazo, are the African American leadership, of the St. Louis County Council.
County Council Chairman, Rita Heard Days of the 1st district and County Council Vice Chairman, Shalonda Webb, of the 4th St. louis County Council district. ——

Tim, does an excellent job, of discussing the various races in St. Louis county and St. Louis city, including the race for County Executive and President of the St. Louis Board of Aldermen, all while stressing the importance of, black voter turnout. ———

There’s also much discussion about the importance of the race, for the US Senate between Democrat, Bush Valentine and her MAGA supported Republican opponent, Missouri State Attorney General,Eric Schmidt. ——-

Surprisingly, neither County Council Chairman Days, nor County Council Vice Chairman Webb, have been asked to lend their support to their fellow Democrat, Bush Valentine. ———

Not only are we surprised but we are indeed disappointed, that with so much on the line, petty selfish politics, trumps everything else. ------

Rita Days and Shalonda Webb represent two County Council districts, where 85 to 90% of black voters reside in St Louis County. ------ 

Days is fresh off of a primary victory, that saw her beat her so called progressive backed candidate, Terry Wilson ,2 to 1.
Days rolled over her opposition, who had the support of the County Executive, Sam Page, the so called Progressives, our black newspaper, the Unity pac and everything else, that they could throw, at the former 2 term State Senator and 4 term State Representative. To say that she has the overwhelming support of African Americans in her county district, is an understatement! ------

Shalonda Webb, won her seat on the St. Louis County Council by defeating Rochelle Walton and her father Elbert A Walton Jr’s, well organized Unity PAC.
Days and Webb are without a doubt, the two most powerful African Americans, in St. Louis County government, ignoring these two black Democratic leaders, with so much on the line in these midterm elections, is nothing but petty selfish politics, doing candidate Bush Valentine and the Democratic Party, a serious disservice, that could have serious national consequences. ———

Democrat Bush Valentine, will not prevail against MAGA supported Republican candidate, Eric Schmidt, without a massive turnout of black voters, in the red state of Missouri, in the upcoming November 8th midterm elections!
Former US Congressman Bill Clay sr. wrote a book titled, “No Permanent Friends No permanent Enemies,” some of these people need to read it! ———
