SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY ECONOMY STAYS LOSING AMID RULE OF MAYOR SLY JAMES!!!



Turns out the d-bags at MARC finally catch on to what our TKC blog community has been reporting for the past few years . . .

THE KANSAS CITY ECONOMY IS FALLING BEHIND UNDER THE LEADERSHIP (OR LACK THEREOF) OF MAYOR SLY JAMES!!!

Here's the headline:

Report: Kansas City Economy Lags Behind That Of Other U.S. Cities

Deets:

"The report, called "Prosperity at the Crossroads," says that fewer than half of the 100 largest metropolitan areas, including the greater Kansas City region, had recovered all the jobs they lost during the recession by the end of 2013.

Data in the report show that Kansas City employment rates, wage growth and job growth are all down."

The revelation should/might strike locals . . .

MAYBE MAYOR SLY SPENDING ALL OF THIS TOWN'S CASH ON THE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR AND GIVING THE REST AWAY @ CORPORATE COCKTAIL PARTIES ISN'T THE BEST ECONOMIC STRATEGY FOR KANSAS CITY!!!



Local leadership isn't about the perception of likeability or charisma . . . This is evidenced by the fact that Mayor Sly has been getting more pissed off @ public meetings as of late.

Meanwhile, this town's corporate parents are taking all of their cash back to the Golden Ghetto while the promise of jobs and development remains a cruel scheme inflicted on residents and carried out through low voter turnout gerrymandered elections devised by corrupt elected officials and political consultants.

And if you think it's bad now . . . Just wait for the market correction that's coming.

We need to loot the taxpayers for billion dollars for toy trains to transport Dave and Matt and a couple other downtown hipsters back and forth from the bars!

We told you so. Good to see someone else is finally figuring this out. That nothings really happening except the unrestrained wholesale looting of KCMO taxpayers and citizens.

But on Twitter they say everything is incredible!!! The Mayor even danced a jig for the RNC at the airport! He looked so Kewl!!

A modern city has to know how to increase tax revenue without raising taxes and annexing. KC has never and will likely never get it.

This says Kc region, which includes johnson to clay counties. Not really sure the mayor has control over the whole region. But that's just me actually reading the article.

Sly is too busy putting his friends and family on the payroll at City Hall. This so-called educated man believes economy works on the friends network. How's that working so far? #FAIL

I'd tend to agree with your point that Sly should have no impact on the economy. The problem is EVERYTHING this horrible Mayor has done so far, including the Toy Train, East Patrol and every other scheme he's come up with since being elected has been build on the premise that he will "SPUR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT". His words, not Tony's. So, you need to do some fact checking on your own. And TAX INCREASES do affect the economic health of a city and region. Any so... your premise that Sly cannot and does not impact the economy is simply irregular and erroneous.

Nailed it 7:40 Slie and Russ and the rest of the crew have been so full bravado about all the incredible things they are doing I'm surprised none of them have exploded from the mass volume of smoke and hot air they continually spew.

The brain drain problem can be fixed. Get rid of the brain dead City Council and you know who.

No one in their right mind is going to move to KCMO with these fools running the show.

82% of the residents of the metro ALREADY don't live in KCMO and are not very likely to move there.
They're all watching in fascination and disbelief as Sly and the gang take the largest municipality in the metro right over a cliff, stampeded by 20-something millenials and hipsters, and the grandiose promises of the urban futurist industial complex.
If the plan still is making downtown financially sustainable as a taxpayer-subsidized amusement park for 20-something year olds, it will certainly be an intereting experiment to watch.
As long as you don't have to pay for it.

Tony has been throwing out this light rail bait on a daily basis and he had not gotten an original post in about 6 months.

Now go back and do it correctly.(Agent K)

Actually the street car started under funk with Russ Johnson and east patrol was in play from the public safty sales tax also under funk, but those are facts. Learn before you repeat.

Downtown is going to be jacked in so many ways once they start running this trolly for the tourist downtown.

9:27 PM Actually East Patrol was not in the works under Funk. There was no location. THOSE ARE THE HARD AND TRUE FACTS. Find one piece of legislation or documents showing East Patrol was going to be located at 26th Prospect. There is NONE. I repeat and repeat again... NONE. Your facts won't hold up in court!

SLY JAMES IS TOTALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR EAST PATROL... TOTALLY! He lobbied police before he was even officially Mayor. He's a slime ball.

I know Tony wants you to think the migratory patterns of Monarch Butterflies can somehow be linked to streetcar construction, but geez louise. Even this is a stretch.

The mayor has as much to do with the local economy as the President has to do with gasoline prices.

Which is to say, nothing at all.

Sly is a nothing but another development puppet spending money the city doesn't have. 4th District City council is absolutely clueless, the core of the City has no representation.

We need a market correction at the voting booth.

Kansas City is failing not just because of Sly James but his whole staff right up to Philip Yelder at HR, the difficulties they cause in starting a business, the contracts going to only certain friends, the lies, dissension, loss of company business records, cronyism with Dunn (who quietly owned MAMBC), Burns &McDonnell, KCP&L, Marc1 Electric who owns and donated the office space for midamerica minority, the Congressman Cleavers construction company owners / parishioners who "Tithe" 10% at his church but it seems more like a loop hole to a kick back, harassment and time that is spent jumping through the hoops p yelder has put on trying to get certified to the point more businesses close before certification and yet more businesses that are certified should have it yanked from under them because they don't qualify .. this city is like the school district .. it is a dumping ground for those who want to pretend to be thugs until its time to do thug shit and then they hide and point fingers..

Oh, yeah Manny Cleaver should NOT be re-elected. Let somebody else get a shot. He's not running for the PEOPLE, he running to continue to steal and loot Black people in the name of Black progress. It's disgusting. And Blacks are all too willing to help him steal from them. Imagine that.
