TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY STILL PAYING FOR 'EXPENSIVE AND EMBARRASSING' GOP CONVENTION BID FAIL AMID BUSTED BUDGET 2015!!!
There's no points for second place and after a FAILED bid for the GOP convention last year, Republicans aren't offering any refunds to Kansas City now that City Hall is facing wage freezes and cutbacks.
To wit . . .
CITY HALL INSIDERS REVEAL MORE BUDGET PUSH BACK AGAINST MAYOR SLY JAMES OVER HIS UNSUCCESSFUL DECISION TO CHASE THE GOP CONVENTION THAT'S NOW CAUSING PAINFUL CUTBACKS FOR EMPLOYEES!!!
The budget will soon be approved but the decision to chase the GOP still stings.
One Insider says:
"The GOP debacle was a classic example of the Mayor's ego ruining a decent opportunity and leaving Kansas City stuck with the bill. Nobody is holding him accountable for the decision but look at the extravagant expenses that KCMO took to accommodate the Republicans and then remember how infighting and Mayor Sly eventually ruined the bid. His dancing with the Republicans didn't help and now all the money KCMO wasted could've been used to avoid some of these cuts. It's embarrassing."
Tragically, many civic cheerleaders count the failed bid as a victory because KCMO came close but ultimately proved typically unsuccessful and unable to secure a victory in the clutch.
