KC police board member Michael S. Kilgore abruptly resigns amid conflict-of-interest questions

The surprise action came one day after a reporter from The Star asked Kilgore, an attorney at the personal injury law firm of Humphrey, Farrington and McClain, about his position on the Board of Police Commissioners and the fact that two other attorneys at his firm had in recent months represented clients who wanted to sue the board. A day after defending his position on the board, Kilgore stepped down, saying he didn’t want to become a distraction.
