Mayor Sly James of Kansas City says he will ride out rough patch

After coasting through his first few years on cheerleading and good vibes, James is hitting speed bumps and community pushback. Former city councilman Dan Cofran has emerged as a possible challenger in 2015. Still, if the political waters have gotten choppy, you wouldn’t know it from talking to the mayor. “I am very happy to stand on the record of what we’ve done,” James said. “We’ve got people feeling good about where they live.”
