ROUND-UP: CELEBRATE KANSAS CITY CORPORATE CRONY SINGLE-TERMINAL NEW AIRPORT BILLION DOLLAR NO BID SCHEME!!!



With a few notable exceptions local reporters dutifully reported press release copy and our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY is one of the few places in Kansas City that didn't accept empty promises about a freebie airport.

Fact is TKC is one of the few news outlets that warned of Mayor Sly moving to the airport right after the Go Bond vote . . .

Here's a quick list of their coverage that was mostly presser copy and no questions:

Best Coverage From The Biz Journal: $2.5B private KCI plan bursts out of the gate but faces several hurdles

KCUR: Kansas City Looks To Private Financing For A New Airport Terminal

KCTV5: Mayor Sly James announces new single-terminal plan for KCI

Fox4: Details revealed about proposed single terminal for KCI

If Trump tried this kind of scheme there would be media hysteria. Not here in Kansas City.

And the local television "news reporters" breathlessly claim that now we can have the airport FOR FREE!
Someone else is going to pay for it!
You really can't make this stuff up!

Thus us all about giving all the business to Burns & Mac, at much higher costs than if you bid the work out!!!

Expect Sly to be Burns & Mac's new lawyer when he is termed out in 2019.

With $150 Million in fees for the $1 Billion Single Terminal Project, B & M should be able to pay Sly $15-20 Million!!!

Lock him up!!!!!!

So "private investors" searched the couch cushions and came up with a billion or so dollars for a new airport? Don't buy it for a moment. This stinks on ice.

We don't NEED a shopping mall or sit-down restaurants. How many folks have been "stuck" waiting for their flights? How many folks have time to sit down to a table-service meal or shop at the airport? How many of the "frequent travelers" interviewed on TV yesterday actually live in other cities? One women said she wanted to show off our airport to her clients. Whaaaaaat? Most people go directly to transportation once they pick up their luggage. I've watched people in other airports. They don't stand around gawking at the restaurants and shops. They get the heck outta there. NO to airport demolition and rebuild.

I've been saying for years the current terminals are practically uninhabitable because the gate areas are too small, and the reality is that the money for the airport is only money for the airport, if the City doesn't build a new terminal that doesn't mean there's a billion dollars more for streets, sewers, schools, or police.

However, this proposed no-competition deal from an engineering company that already does 10's of millions of work for the City stinks, it stinks bad.

Thanks Sly for coming up with a deal that's sure to get bogged down ...
