SHOCK!!! PETITIONERS AGAINST DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY CONVENTION HOTEL CONFRONT 'BLOCKING' BY CONSULTANTS!!!



The street level debate over the fate of the Downtown Convention Hotel continues this week with another run-in betwixt Brookside petitioners vs. City Hall power brokers.

To wit . . .

CHECK KANSAS CITY TAX FIGHTER OUTRAGE AGAINST DOWNTOWN HOTEL PROPONENTS AND ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL CONSULTANTS IN KCMO!!!

Consider this a follow-up to allegations amid an earlier dust-up betwixt petitioners and developer Mike Burke regarding the merits of the proposed hotel or lack thereof . . .



As always, we're more than willing to post the story according to Mr. Parson and note that even the description of the encounter is described by CFRG as a mere "annoyance" in the grand scheme of things.

CFRG: Jason Parson and others Harass Signature Gathers



Signature gatherers working on the petition to get the Downtown Hotel on a ballot so voters have a choice, were harassed by “blockers”. The team was led by Jason Parson of Parson and Associates along with others. Parson work(ed) with Mike Burke who is the hotel developer and was caught last week harassing a petition gatherer and fighting with a woman customer at that location. Parson is also on the team working to expand the streetcar . . . So he appears well connected to city hall. In spite of the annoyance, the gatherers continue to get voters to sign and are nearing their goal. Thanks to all of you who have worked on the campaign and have tolerated the inconvenience of being harassed.

Quick TKC take . . .

This grocery store encounter is actually kind of interesting because the tax fighters are up against bigger odds than they understand. This crew forgets that Mr. Parson was part of an EPIC DEAL WITH BURNS & MAC that featured questionable routing of MORE THAN $500K to support the toy train line . Parson & Co. are actually major players in the city's streetcar plan and on a percentage basis this small firm is one of the top earning political consulting outfits in Kansas City. But, I guess part of that work involves getting out there on local streets and mixing it up with petitioners in a fight to save tax subsidy of a hotel project that most private investors have rejected.

Time for a petition to make city council and mayor salaries $1 per year.

This is not the way it's supposed to be.

There was a day when a public figure would have been embarrassed to be associated with such activity.

Parson's just another hack completely in thrall to Sly and the gang at city hall.
And he's a perfect example of what Upton Sinclair said years ago:
"It's very difficult to get a man to understand the facts, when his salary depends on him not understanding them".
Bought and paid for.
Really a shame.

This hotel would bring JOBS. OPPORTUNITIES. PEOPLE. These petitioners are hired from cities that aren't Kansas City... meaning they don't live here. I highly doubt that Mr. Parson was 'harrassing' them.

I'm in favor of the hotel but the goon politics is bad.

3:20 Tornadoes bring jobs, but they are not good for a city. Throwing scarce tax dollars at conventions will create a few low paying jobs but destroy many more than they create.

Please make sure that Mayor Bully Bullhorn's shoes are well polished, slave.
