Grandview Mayor Resigns

Heard this story this morning and thought it would be nice to have some discussion about local politics.

Anybody know anything else about what's going on in south KC?......


GRANDVIEW, Mo. - There are still plenty of questions about why the mayor of Grandview issued a sudden resignation on Friday.
But two city leaders confirmed to 41 Action News the FBI questioned them about former Mayor Steve Dennis’ involvement with a now defunct nonprofit.

According to documents filed online, two of Dennis’ former colleagues on the Grandview Board of Aldermen, Board President Brent Steeno and Alderman John Maloney, submitted complaints against him for falsely listing them as being on the board of directors for the organization “Matters of the Heart Inc.”

On April 1, 2013, Steeno and Maloney sent letters to the Missouri Secretary of State, asking for their names to be removed.
Just a year earlier, Dennis filed paperwork to create the nonprofit. A description said the purpose of the ministry was to be a local community outreach to the poor and disadvantaged.

“(He) never asked for my permission, agreement, or compliance to serve on the Board of Directors at any time,” both letters said. “I have not received any correspondences, written or verbal, about the operations, management, or direction of ‘Matters of the Heart, Inc.’”
Steeno, who will serve as interim mayor until Dennis’ old position is filled, told 41 Action News on Monday that he started getting questions about the nonprofit from people prior to the last April’s general election. Steeno said he didn’t know anything about it, but was then informed he was listed on the board of directors.

“I was pretty annoyed when I saw that,” he said. “You have a lot of thoughts that go through your mind. You wonder if someone is trying to do anything shady. To this day, I still have no idea.”

Maloney was also taken aback when he saw his name listed on the documents.

"I was shocked and angered," Maloney told 41 Action News.
Both city leaders said they asked the mayor about it, who told them it was an accident and the wrong paperwork had mistakenly been sent to the State.

But Steeno said the FBI questioned him about “Matters of the Heart, Inc.” about six months ago. Maloney also confirmed the FBI paid him a visit.

Despite that development, the mayor’s sudden resignation still came as a surprise to colleagues at City Hall, who also fielded questions from constituents about the sudden resignation.
"He did a great job for our city," Steeno said. "He was energetic. Citizens loved him. Staff loved him. We all had a great working relationship on the Board. It comes as a bit of a shock."
Dennis' nonprofit was administratively dissolved by the State of Missouri. According to public documents, the State of Missouri dissolved the nonprofit on December 19, 2012 for “failure to file a correct and current annual report.”
A spokeswoman with the FBI would neither confirm nor deny the existence of an investigation.
41 Action News tried to reach Dennis for comment with phone calls and a stop by his home, but is still awaiting a response.
Steeno and Maloney wanted to assure residents the situation with the former mayor is personal, and doesn't involve anything with the city.

Still not any details, but it is an attempt to further the story. hopefully soon, we'll hear exactly what's up.

Former Grandview mayor emails colleague about going to prison

GRANDVIEW, Mo. – A week-and-a-half ago, the mayor of Grandview, Steve Dennis resigned abruptly from office. He left behind a letter of resignation and said it was effective immediately, giving no further details.
This week, emails sent to FOX 4 from the Grandview government show the former mayor believes he is going to prison.
The emails were exchanged with a local architect.

In one from January 9, which was one day before his resignation, Dennis tells the architect that a meeting “did not go well”. He continues, saying, “I will need to resign as mayor as soon as tomorrow.”
Another email asks for prayer:
“Please pray for the family,” Dennis wrote. “I’m not sure we’re going to make it financially when I’m gone for a year to prison.”
Dennis told some at City Hall that he couldn’t give them more details about the reasons he resigned.

“The City organization wishes to thank Mr. Dennis for his 13 years of service to the City and wishes him well,” said Ana Nixon, City of Grandview Public Information Officer, when she announced his resignation.

Update.....

One month after mysterious resignation, former Grandview mayor pleads guilty to wire fraud



KANSAS CITY, Mo - Former Grandview Mayor Steve Dennis pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud in federal court on Tuesday.
He is convicted of taking $35,000 worth of donations from the International House of Prayer under a bogus charity and using it for his personal expenses.

Dennis, who hasn't spoken publicly since the controversy surfaced, had originally said he planned to make a statement after Tuesday's court proceedings. However, following the hearing, his attorney indicated he had nothing to say because of the "sensitive nature of the issues."
The plea agreement recommended would have his serve one year and one day in prison.

The plea deal comes roughly one month after Dennis abruptly resigned from his post in January without offering explanation for the sudden decision.
41 Action News was the first to report FBI interest in Dennis’ now-defunct nonprofit organization, “Matters of the Heart, Inc,” later confirming federal authorities questioned at least four city aldermen .

41 Action News then uncovered further FBI scrutiny on Dennis’ campaign contributions . Dennis won reelection in April 2013 by a comfortable margin and his file indicated he raised more than $26,000, dwarfing the amounts raised by his opponents.

But those campaign finance documents also revealed a large chunk of money spent after the election at places like the Apple Store. An FBI agent who also requested the file last year left behind a copy of his business card, providing an ominous warning sign of what was to come.

41 Action News also discovered questionable expenses with Dennis’ city-issued credit card. Thousands of dollars worth of purchases lacked any receipts, including hundreds of dollars on Christmas Eve 2012 at several retail stores.

Dennis claimed to dine with several politicians on the taxpayers’ dime, but those elected leaders told 41 Action News the meetings never occurred.
Following that story, newly-appointed Mayor Leonard Jones implemented new policies with purchasing cards issued to city officials.

Emails obtained by 41 Action News did foreshadow Dennis’ legal problems. In one email, the former mayor told a friend that he feared going to prison .
But residents and city leaders in Grandview have only been able to speculate about the circumstances and will await Tuesday’s developments at the federal courthouse.

This story will be updated when further details are available.

I know...Its just kind of weird how people in cities/suburbs of that size usually don't even know the name of the mayor--although I'm sure they do now. I couldn't tell you the name of the Overland Park, Olathe or Shawnee mayors, the largest suburbs on the Kansas side.
