MAYOR SLY JAMES BETRAYS PROMISE TO BACK OFF NEW MCI!!! TKC EXCLUSIVE QUESTION: WILL KANSAS CITY VOTERS APPROVE NEW BILLION DOLLAR AIRPORT SCHEME??? OPPONENTS DARE COUNCIL LADY JOLIE JUSTUS TO PUT IT ON BALLOT!!!
Amid the highest homicide count Kansas City has seen in nearly a decade, Mayor Sly James continues to dedicate most of his energy to a development slate championed by The Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce.
With very little fanfare or interest, KCTV5 did an excellent job in breaking this story of AN EPIC JUNKET OF MORE THAN 100 CIVIC LEADERS taking a fantastic voyate to talk about new airport plans. . .
KCTV5: Kansas City metro leaders meet in Dallas for research on KCI airport plans
This quickly discarded headline evokes this reaction . . .
MAYOR SLY JAMES ONCE AGAIN MAINTAINS HIS ROLE AS KANSAS CITY'S TOP POLITICAL CORPORATE WELFARE PUPPET ANSWERING DONALD TRUMP'S CALL TO BUILD A NEW AIRPORT AT THE BEHEST OF THE RULING CLASS WHILE URBAN WARFARE BREAKS OUT ON LOCAL STREETS!!!
Sometimes it might seem like this blog is too hard on this Mayor and it's true that we kinda feel sorry for a guy who nobody ever loved without getting a check first . . . But this shameful bait and switch scheme championed by a political charlatan has to be the low point in a career that has seen him completely ignore anyone in this town who wasn't on his campaign donor list.
And so the Mayor's so-called shift in priorities barely lasted 90 days.
Here's the quote . . .
Kansas City Mayor Sly James said accepting a $1.25-billion offer to rebuild KCI is something Kansas City needs to do.
"I recognize that everybody likes the convenience of hopping out of their car and jumping into the security line, but airports need to address a lot more issues than that," James said
And here's where things get really stupid . . .
MAYOR SLY AND JOLIE JUSTUS ARE BACK TO TOUTING THE SOUTHWEST FINANCING DEAL THAT STILL PUTS KANSAS CITY TAXPAYERS ON THE HOOK TO PAY BACK AN EPIC AIRPORT LOAN!!!
Locals heard this offer once and scoffed but now a junket of Chamber dweebs think their excitement will carry the day.
One opponent says . . .
"At this point, we want them put this thing on the ballot and let voters decide. The public has spoken loud and clear on this issue. The new airport is a non-starter especially when Kansas City has so many other pressing needs."
And so, Mayor Sly is RISKING THE BILLION DOLLAR BOND ISSUE COMING UP in order to please his Chamber pals and this issue is once again on the local radar as the homicide count continues to skyrocket.
