The Hill: A new agenda for cities must come from cities
Money line . . .
"One of the biggest problems in Kansas City, as with other metropolitan areas, is that the city’s affairs have been so poorly managed for a very long time through regular rounds of bad “public investments.” It’s not that Kansas City needs more money—it receives plenty through taxes—but the city spends and invests that money poorly, chasing glitz while letting basic services languish. Throwing more federal dollars at failed initiatives won’t retroactively salvage these projects."
