KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY JAMES PRACTICES HIS TAX AND SPEND 'STATE OF THE CITY' SPEECH OVER THE WEEKEND!!!
Most Kansas City residents believe that Mayor Sly James is genuinely a good person with the best intentions at heart.
They're probably right.
However . . .
ONLY THE MOST ARROGANT KANSAS CITY POLITICO WOULD DARE TO SUGGEST RAISING TAXES, TAKING AWAY RIGHTS FROM VOTERS AND THEN SPENDING CASH ON A TOURIST TRAP TOY TRAIN IS A GOOD IDEA!!!
Still, he did all this while smiling so I guess it's okay.
Nevertheless, the Mayor's warm up speech before his official STATE OF THE CITY ADDRESS he touted a host of horrible efforts.
Mayor Sly is still pushing his Kansas City Public School Takeover Plan despite the fact that it's dead on arrival and only serves to show how little influence he has in Jeff City.
MAYOR SLY TALKED ABOUT THE NEED TO RAISE TAXES IN KANSAS CITY . . . HE DID IT WITH A STRAIGHT FACE AND WITHOUT A GOOD PUNCHLINE!!!
And then Mayor Sly made mention of the Kansas City Downtown Toy Train . . . It's a proposal to spend $100 Million on a train that travels roughly the distance of a brisk walk and is touted as yet another tourist trap despite EXPENSIVE evidence that strategy hasn't work for Kansas City so far.
Still . . . Mayor Sly said it all with a smile and claims that he doesn't care about a second term. Given that he's had almost a year in office and still hasn't had one major accomplishment or original idea . . . Despite the smiles, maybe it's time to seriously consider the lack concern for voters from Mayor Sly James.
