TKC QUESTION OF THE DAY: IS KANSAS CITY KILLING SMALL BIZ?!?!?
Tuesday question with Emma Frain hotness . . .
ARE SO MANY BIG BIZ TAX INCENTIVES AND CORPORATE GIVEAWAYS KILLING SMALL BIZ IN KANSAS CITY?!?!?
Small biz week in Kansas City kicked off yesterday at . . . Wait for it . . . BURNS & MAC of all places. I can only hope they offered lessons in how to get $41 Million worth of tax breaks with just a few innocuous threats.
Still . . . Kansas City is focused on big companies and the elite while locals complain about regulatory crackdown and a basic lack of regard for small biz from City Hall.
Recently, a conversation with Kansas City Westport Power Broker Bill Nigro elicited this quote . . .
Not so long ago, Bill Nigro said: "Kansas City is very unfriendly to small business. Regulated Industries shut me down over a simple doorway infraction. I like our Mayor but he hasn't really helped make life easier for small business people like he promised when he was running for office."
Now, we got that quote from Bill a couple of months ago but we're sure it still stands as Kansas City continues to pay only lip-service to small biz while focusing all of their attention on corporate giveaways and a toy train battle that threatens to destroy any small biz person who gets in the way.
