SHOCK!!! MAYOR SLY JUSTIFIES STANDING UP FOR BILL GEORGE TAXI MONOPOLY!!!
Before anybody else, TKC reported Mayor Sly taking a beating on Twitter over his stance on Kansas City taxi permit controversy . . . Now it seems he's using a bit of one-way communication to continue his defense . . . Which is smart but not exactly groundbreaking.
Hit the brakes and get the facts
"This is not a case of the “big, bad City” out to set back entrepreneurs. This is a case where the City is willing to work with ridesharing companies in order to bring safe, innovative services to Kansas City. When those companies are ready to work cooperatively with us to protect the safety of citizens, and they meet public safety regulations, we’ll be ready to give them a green light."
Read the whole thing and there's something in between the lines that most don't realize . . .
TKC FACT CHECK . . . MAYOR SLY DEFENDS THE BILL GEORGE TRANSIT GROUP BY CITING HIS SUCCESS IN WORKING WITH ZTRIP THAT'S PART OF THE BILL GEORGE TRANSIT GROUP!!! NICE!!!
Sadly, Mayor Sly is faking comments on his post and this PR play shows his office backpeddling now that his Internets image has been tarnsihed.
More in a bit . . .
