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
"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.
