Saturday night 4th district-at-large KC Council candidate Deth Im held a fundraiser at a private Brookside residence hosted by former 4th district councilman Jim Rowland, state Sen. Jolie Justus and state Rep. Trent Skaggs. (1st District councilman Bill Skaggs was also there.)
About 150 people showed up to listen to Im outline his campaign points. Rowland provided opening remarks, asking attendees to contribute to Im’s campaign because “other candidates are trying to buy this election.” Many say the comment was directed to 4th district-at-large council candidate Beth Gottstein who has raised around $14,000, and lent her campaign $50,000, to eclipse her opponents' fund-raising.
Gottstein did not offer a response to the criticism, stating that she preferred to “just talk about the issues.”
