Glynn discusses his experiences as a business owner in Kansas City, talks about his motivations for running for Mayor, and speaks passionately and eloquently about a plethora of issues: including the expenditure of $800 million in General Obligation bond dollars, the ongoing saga of the American Jazz Museum board, and the proper way to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
