CITY BUDGET DISCUSSION ON TWITTER AND EARLY SATURDAY MORNING TO AVOID KANSAS CITY VOTER PARTICIPATION!!!
More than any other politico in recent Kansas City History . . . Mayor Sly is masterful and crafting the illusion of transparency.
Internets chatter is much easier than simply standing up in the urban core and talking.
Here's today's Kansas City Tech Propaganda:
City invites public to join first ever interactive budget chat
The City of Kansas City, Mo., invites the public to share ideas regarding the City’s Submitted FY2014-15 Budget by participating in the first ever interactive budget chat on Wednesday, Feb. 12 from 3-4 p.m. During this time, Mayor Sly James, City Manager Troy Schulte, City department directors and budget staff will gather together at City Hall to respond to the public’s questions and comments.
“This is a new, innovative way for City leadership to interact with the public on the details of the proposed budget,” said Mayor James. “I invite everyone to review the proposed budget and share their ideas and questions.”
To participate in the budget chat, please send comments/questions via Twitter to @KCMO (www.twitter.com/kcmo) using the hashtag #kcmobudget or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
