City Hall wants all conversation about the proposed Downtown Convention Hotel on lock down as the deadline for an April 4th GO BOND vote approaches. The convoluted hotel deal is one of the many corporate welfare examples which remind voters about the screwed up priorities of City Hall.

THE FINANCING FOR THE DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY CONVENTION HOTEL REMAINS SKETCHY AND MORE VIABLE ALTERNATIVES HAVE EMERGED!!!

The bad news for developers gets even worse given that it's now come time to start planning that "groundbreaking" promised for Spring.

To wit . . .

ANYBODY CAN DIG A HOLE . . . FEAR KANSAS CITY DOWNTOWN CONVENTION HOTEL FAKE NEWS GROUNDBREAKING CEREMONY AS PRIVATE INVESTMENT IN THIS PROJECT HAS FAILED TO LIVE UP TO EXPECTATIONS AND CITY HALL INSIDERS EXPECT YET ANOTHER REQUEST FOR MORE TAXPAYER CASH!!!

Again, all talk about the ponzi scheme that is Downtown Kansas City development is being put on hold until elected officials at 12th and Oak can get their hands on the GO BOND BLANK CHECK up for approval on April 4th . . . If the campaign proves successful, residents can look forward to an even more crowded pipeline of taxpayer subsidized speculative projects.

I've lived in KC for 34 years and during that time I've been to more than a dozen media even groundbreakings that never materialized into a finished product. TKC, don't expect anybody to ask questions.

that's KC for you.

Promise street and sidewalk repair.

But then spend the money on a new hotel.

Hey, I wonder if "see you at the groundbreaking" guy will be at the event. I hope he's getting a good check for it? The work is easy but also soul crushing.

Excuse me? Why is KC building hotels and apartment buildings? What about all of the damn potholes in the streets. Today there was a massive one that appeared near West Plaza and Brush Creek. The thing nearly swallowed a Fiat and it has been killing tires all morning long. Putting a call into both of my council reps right now and demanding city hall pay my Firestone bill, they should consider themselves lucky I don't file a more serious complaint.

Well, I guess since Mike Burke's hotel dreams are vanishing (along with that huge windfall) he could try running for Mayor again.

Recall that 6 years ago, he and Sly were tag-teaming the city, but when Sly's faux demeanor pushed him to the win, he gave Burke the green light for the convention center hotel project.

Exactly WHO are the downtown hotel supporters?
Besides Mike and all the rest of the grifters hungry to cash in, that is.

Who is putting any money in this deal? Everybody wants to just borrow all the funds. Nobody wants to invest anything. That should tell us something. Hey guys, put your money where your mouth is. If you cannot do that, your mouth is talking and I am not listening. Enough

Take a look at Burkes ACTUAL RECORD of accomplishments. What he and his money have done not what he has B.S. about and what he got development funds to do. How much more than a cup of coffee.
