TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY POWER PLAYER POLITICAL CONSULTANT JASON PARSON APPOINTED BY MAYOR SLY AS NEWBIE TIF COMMISH!!!



This morning our AWESOME TKC BLOG COMMUNITY thinks it's important to offer a bit of insight into a presser that leaves out a great many deets regarding the close circle of people who really run Kansas City.

To wit . . .

CONGRATS TO POLITICAL CONSULTANT JASON PARSON ON HIS RECENT APPOINTMENT TO THE TIF COMMISSION!!!

It's unclear what he knows about the City's finances but given his meteoric rise in the local political scene, he's clearly a quick study.

What the following presser doesn't reveal . . .

Long, long ago . . . The Pitch documented some "domestic problems" during the younger days of Mr. Parson. In fairness, he's a newly married family man and there are very few people among the KCMO political set who don't at least appreciate his exceptionally personable style.

Mr. Parson made debut as a player in KCMO politics as a consultant on the losing Mike Burke for Mayor campaign.

His company handled the majority of work in pushing the streetcar starter line and managed to navigate some tough questions about "electioneering" with more than a half million worth of taxpayer money not so cleverly routed by the dweebs from Burns & Mac.

And now . . . He joins former Council Lady Cindy Circo on the TIF Commission as yet another fierce loyalist of Mayor Sly James.

Check the under the radar propaganda from City Hall . . .

Mayor James announces appointments to TIF Commission and PIEA Board of Commissioners

Kansas City, MO – Today, Mayor Sly James appointed Jason Parson to the Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Commission and Ronnie Criss to the Planned Industrial Expansion Authority (PIEA) Board of Commissioners.

Parson is currently the President of Parson & Associates, LLC and previously served in both the United States Army and United States Air Force Reserve.

The TIF Commission is a financing and development tool that allows future real property taxes and other taxes generated by new development to be reinvested for the construction of public infrastructure and other improvements. TIF encourages development of blighted, substandard and economically underutilized areas that would not otherwise occur without a public-private partnership.

Parson succeeds Jennifer Dameron as a mayoral appointee on the commission.

Criss is currently a Business Representative for the St. Louis-Kansas City Carpenters Regional Council and has served on staff for 14 years. Criss previously worked for Firebaugh Construction as a Carpenter Foreman for 25 years. He has been a member of the Kansas City Carpenters Union for nearly 42 years.

PIEA incentives encourage investment and remove blight within PIEA Plan Areas. Projects must be located within the boundaries of a PIEA Plan Area and must be in accordance with the use and design plans of the associated General Development Plan.

PIEA staff and the Board of Commissioners will review project plans for conformance with the General Development Plan, including building use and design elements appropriate to the surrounding neighborhoods.

Criss succeeds Bonnie Sue Cooper as a mayoral appointee on the commission.

The definition of "Window Dressing":

Appoint an out of touch black guy to be the face of a group that has a mission to divert funds intended to benefit the urban core to line the pockets of wealthy developers and develop areas that are not blighted.

Good job, Mr. Parsons! You have finally arrived - Now get in there and toss Sly's salad!

Parson is a good, smart man. I'm sure the racists who comment so frequently here will demean him, but he remains a good choice for the commission.

This is sad. There is no loyalty from Jason. His rise is due to shameful actions.
Careful, Kansas City. Jason will sell us to the highest bidder.
No moral code.

Jason has ascended! Free to celebrate his own perceived celebrity, attend endless forums and ribbon-cuttings, travel around the country and abroad at taxpayer expense, look out for insiders and supporters by channeling projects and funding their way, play at partisan politics and work on what they're planning to run for next, and otherwise ignore even the most basic oversight responsibilities they have for the management of city government!

The Sly James Appointment of Freedom!

Looks like the Mayor is continuing to appoint members of his "James for Congress" prep team to key boards and commissions while eliminating those with the relevant background and experience to get the job done. Isn't that what the ADVANCE KC PLAN is all about or has it been relegated to the shelf like FOCUS KC?

I like Jason. He will do well on the TIF Commission. Contrary to popular belief, he is his own man. He will ruffle the feathers a little but in the end, he will go along to git along.
