TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY JAZZ DISTRICT REDUX!!! DOUBLE TROUBLE!!! CONGRESSMAN CLEAVER AND COUNCIL DUDE JERMAINE REED WON'T COMPROMISE ON MAYORAL CONTENDER SCOTT WAGNER PLAN TO SCALE DOWN 18TH & VINE FUNDING!!!



Mayor Sly is out of town right now but that won't stop the behind the scenes debate on controversial Kansas City Jazz District cash.

To wit . . .

THANKS TO OUR KICK-ASS BLOG COMMUNITY WE HAVE THE LATEST BREAKING DEETS ON THE BEHIND THE SCENES JAZZ DISTRICT NEGOTIATIONS BETWIXT THE CITY COUNCIL!!!

First up . . .

COUNCIL DUDE JERMAINE REED IS A MAN ON A MISSION AND HE'S WON'T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER ON HIS $27 MILLION JAZZ DISTRICT EFFORT!!!

One council member after the next has tried to get him to back down after his power play to bring his ordinance to a vote before the full council FAILED last week.

Additionally . . .

Now, Congressman Cleaver has reentered the fray and City Council denizens have a harder time telling him no.



But it gets better . . .

COUNCIL DUDE SCOTT WAGNER HAS A PAYMENT PLAN FOR THE 18TH & VINE DISTRICT THAT STARTS FUNDING AT AROUND $6-7 MILLION AND ATTEMPTS TO SET BENCHMARKS!!!

We can't blame him for trying when the typical Northland response is highly suspicious of this effort . . .



It seems that the only bit of common ground the Council can find is that THERE NEEDS TO BE A NEW DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY FOR THE DISTRICT THAT WILL SIGNAL A CLEAN BREAK FROM PREVIOUS MANAGEMENT at the very least this is where elected officials have been able to start the discussions that have heretofore been mostly about City Hall writing a blank check.

The fun part here is that Council Dude Reed is outgunned when it comes to legislative moves given Councilman Wagner's skill at using procedural rules to his advantage.

Nevertheless . . .

Negotiations continue and the majority of the Council seems to want to support some kind of a plan at a lower up-front cost with more checks & balances for a world-renowned Kansas City attraction that still hasn't managed to sustain itself after an investment to the tune of $100 MILLION over nearly a generation.

Developing . . .

Fire Troy Schulte and this problem goes away. He shouldn't have made such big promises for millions worth of funding.

Thanks Obama.

I guess Wagner deserves credit for at least trying to stop the bleeding here but the truth is that without some really specific goals it's all just good money after bad. Thankfully, not as much.

FACT : Clever needs some more Public Tax Money in his Pocket from under the Table dirty deeds !!!
Wonder how much of that MONEY will NEVER EVER make it to the Coon District ??????

^^^^^^ moron, with that kind of shit. You might as well write them the check. Do you even know that a lot of thr community in this district doesn't want this plan. Educate yourself.

Yes, but what does Dan Coffey, a man who has dedicated his life to helping his little brown brothers, think? Maybe he can tell us about what "slave days" were like again. That's why he wins so many elections to represent people. He is the voice of Brookside, and the East Side.

As long as the east side grifters are fighting the crony capitalists perhaps the taxpayers get a small break.

Wow a twelve exclamation point headline. And what do we get?

More hot DEETS that are speculation and a giant bagful of sweeping generalizations.

"It seems that..."

"Council seems to want..."

Weasel words, in other words!!!!!!!!!!!!

p.s. !!!!!

We should give up on the brown brothers bullshit. Whites who avoid Blacks do so not so much because of their skin color (although let's be honest, it's hardly as desirable as White skin color), but because they are inherently dysfunctional, volatile, violent, easily angered, and possess strong inclinations to steal and rob others. They are, essentially, a race of misfits who are perpetually dependent on the White man's kindness and gullibility.

In order to counter this common misconception, it's imperative that race-conscious Whites always center their arguments on typical Black dysfunction and uncivilized behavior. These folks can't handle the truth when Whites make the issue not about skin color, but about their conduct, their lack of civility, their inability to function in White society.

Truth is, they were never designed for civilized and technologically advanced White societies. They belong on the African plains, erecting mud huts, worshipping idols, performing voodoo, and engaging in neighboring tribal warfare. Whatever the case, it's time to admit that they don't belong with us. Isn't it clear by now?

Since when is Cleaver on the city commission? I know coons stick together, but he needs to get his black fat ass back to Washington, pack up for his next trip with Obamy and stay the fuck out of local politics. Jesus! He had his shot at being mayor and look at the fucking mess he made. It is so wonderful knowing how many mooching coons are just dying to spend the working folks' money.

this amenity is part of what makes kansas city kansas city, so it needs to be both well-managed and supported adequately.

given the role that the jazz district should have, it may actually merit larger public support, but with a bigger vision that's managed to rigorously.

the welcome feeling, the security, the vibrancy, they should all be top flight.

for example, first tme visitors to kansas city always ask about bbq and jazz.

we should all be able to say go to the jazz district you'll love it (and be safe).

"World-renowned Kansas City attraction"

In whose eyes?

Shut this down, now. Just like East Patrol, this plan, if you can call it that, has nothing to do with people and more to do about getting their last trickle down gub-ment check before Obama is ousted by default. I'm sure this includes Community Development Block Grant and other unregulated or under-regulated pots of money where zero accountability is traditional. Since Cleaver brings in the pork grants, he feels entitled to have his snout in the trough first.

How many damn knocks outs does it take for 18th and Vine to loose the battle. Doesn't the city have a living will that requires this fucking shit hole to be disconnected from life support? This crap should have been dead 50 million tax payer dollars ago.

Anonymous said...

18th and Vine project is one big umbrella for free many for too many people. Greed is the reason nothing results. Where are the work products for the $100 million dollars already spent?? Little to show..... Spend that money on sewer lines and lower the water costs.....East side residents would be very happy, along with residents of the rest of the Coty.

Anonymous said...

It 18th and Vine is such a great project of national significance, why doesn't Cleaver get them 27 million from a Federal grant source? Why not give the district to the National Park Service??

Very Simple! The U.S. Congress told KC to get screwed on this thing a few years back and sent money to the National Jazz Museum in New York.

Tony!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Your falling behind bro!!! Where is the article and video of Chef Fortae of KCPD calling his cops more or less RACIST??? It was on channel 9 Bro.....

^^^^ Linked already.

And we need to fund the jazz district or else there really isn't anything special about KC.

Let's stop turning this place into Iowa.

Please.

Let's sing to the tune of that great Wilbert Harrison’s hit from the 50's Kansas City.

I’m going to Kansas City,
Kansas City, here I come
Kansas City, I’m bringing my gun
I hear they got some crazy brothers there
And I’m going to ice me one

I’m standing on the corner of 18th & Vine
With my Kansas Baby and my Glock 9
I’m going to Kansas City,
Kansas City here I come
I’m going to Kansas City and I’m bringing my gun

7:40 I think that was humor as a parody of a song to show the violence in the area in a satirical way.

No more money for this project. They've had enough handouts for a century.

Missouri cuts food stamps and the city wants to toss 27 million at a certified failure. Gotta love these local geniuses.
