TKC QUESTION: WHY IS MAYOR SLY JAMES STILL PLAYING CHICKEN AMID UPCOMING KANSAS CITY INFRASTRUCTURE DEBATE???



Kansas City Mayor Sly James doesn't get many tough questions and this week local tax fighters lament that the top politico in town won't take part in local Democracy and discourse on a vital topic.

To wit . . .

ONCE AGAIN LOCAL TAX FIGHTERS QUESTION MAYOR SLY'S REFUSAL TO PARTICIPATE IN A MODERATED DEBATE AT THE KANSAS CITY PUBLIC LIBRARY!!!

Mayor Sly hasn't faced any public forum where questions can be addressed from the audience so far this year . . . As locals encourage town halls fro their political representatives in Washington D.C., it's important to understand that right here in our hometown the mayor simply doesn't discuss his policy or administration even in the midst of a huge public vote and longstanding issue.

Here's the word one more time in hopes that our blog community discourse might inspire an answer . . .

Important Debate with City Leaders to Discuss the Cost of Our Aging Infrastructure

Tuesday, this week, KCPT will be hosting a discussion on infrastructure needs now that the $800,000,000 blank check has been cashed. As you can see it originally headlined the Mayor, Troy Schulte and others.



However, it is now reported when Sly found out that "others” were involved, his feathers got ruffled and he flew the coop. As you recall Sly laid an egg a few weeks ago when he backed out of a KCPT Week in Review debate when he heard “others” would be there. How else could you have a debate??

A recent picture of our Mayor is attached below>>>




Don’t let the nonsense dissuade you from attending this important meeting. Our City faces monumental crisis not the least of which is the failing infrastructure. Don’t forget to RSVP for the meeting.

Here are more deets on the upcoming event.

He's not going to answer questions or debate because he knows that his positions on development incentives and his fair wage vote flip flop are inexcusable.

Shame on him for not debating.

Why risk anything when there is no upside?

C'Mon Tony cut Sly Some Slack- This is at the PLAZA Library. It's dangerous at the Plaza especially at night. Don't you remember what happened to the Mayor at the Plaza the last time he was there? Some Hood rodent shot the double bacon cheeseburger right out of our mayor's hand. He then had to flee for his life-
I'm surprised you don't remember.

The bond issue has passed and the money will start rolling in and the expenditure decisions will be made like they always are in KCMO, behind closed doors and under the table so that the usual suspects, insiders, assorted grifters, campaign contributors, and others can reserve their usual places in the front of the line to the trough.
There's no benefit to Sly to make believe that decisions will be made any other way or to further lie to the public about what the bond issue was really all about.
Perhaps the very quite under the radar "election" scam for the streetcar expansion will give you some hint.
And Sly needs to continue to relentlessly work on his most important issue, which is "what are you going to run for next, where can you land a cushy corporate/law firm job in a couple years, and how are you going to grease the skids and fund it all"?
An $800 million trough which will fill and refill for decades.
And so many out-stretched palms and so little time.
Thanks for playing.

If the taxpayers are so overburdened why did they sign the check?

^^^ Good question.

My guess is because they're suckers and they didn't think they had any alternative.

^^^my guess is because bus services ran for free and the majority of them votes came from unpaying,uncaring folk who seem to think that their lives matter.
