Mayor Sly's Kansas City Single-Terminal Airport Committee All For Nothing?!?!



This one kinda got lost in the mix today but it's worth mentioning . . .

MAYOR SLY'S KANSAS CITY AIRPORT COMMITTEE WAS ALL FOR SHOW!!!

No specifics in Kansas City is pretty much standard election protocol . . .

KCI Advisory Board will not make a specific recommendation

Deets . . .

"The Mayor's KCI Advisory Board will not give a specific recommendation of which terminal layout is the best option for Kansas City International Airport. Instead, the members of the board said Tuesday, they will hand off the information they have gathered so far to Mayor Sly James and the Kansas City Council and let them adopt the issue and make a more informed decision."

Some say this was the right move considering that most of the panelists had checked out of this months ago . . . Also, for those who did pay attention, Committee attendance now seems like a merit badge of sorts so their statements on the airport will be even more newsworthy . . . Hint: We're waiting for SaveKCI.org to call b.s. on this whole thing.

The new airport is a done deal tony. Best to start figuring out how you can get a cut of the action

Basically, all of Mayor James' committees and boards are just for show. He has diluted their authority to himself and placed appointments only to cement his position as Chief Asshole. It's working too.

Just more of the same.
Now the decisions can be made behind closed doors and ordinances passed "by emergency" to minimize any public input.
After Van Loh and the gang went through that long list of ridiculous rationales, did they ever finally come up with an even vaguely plausible reason to spend $1.2 billion?
Other than shoveling more money to the usual contractors, bond attorneys, and other lawyers, that is.

Probably should have had more meetings in Johnson County.
