TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! HIGH-FLYING MAYOR SLY JAMES RESTARTS KANSAS CITY AIRPORT SINGLE-TERMINAL EFFORT!!!



The local political elite claim that the Mayor's approval rating is soaring higher than ever before after stoners and special interests won a low-turnout election to pass weed reform and a lot of new taxes.

To wit . . .

WITH NEW CONFIDENCE KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY RESTARTS HIS EFFORT TO BUILD A SINGLE-TERMINAL AIRPORT!!!

Remember that the Mayor had to hit "PAUSE" on this effort around this time last year because of polling push back from voters. Fact is, they never stopped working on this plan behind the scenes and the current scheme promises that voters won't have to pay for the "improvements" that nobody wants. We'll have more on that later but for now here's the big meetup planned since before the GO Bond vote just like our blog community said and now confirmed for the MSM.

Basically, the mayor claims that private financing and the help of his pals @ Burns & Mac will finance the single-terminal effort.

Checkit:

Media Advisory, Office of Mayor Sly James

What: Announcement regarding innovative proposal for new single terminal airport



Who: Mayor Sly James, City Manager Troy Schulte, and guests.

When: Friday, May 12, 2017 8:30am

Ever get the feeling that Sly is taking on too many projects?

Burns and Mac really should be able to come with at least a few bucks.
After all, the city and its taxpayers built them their new headquarters and actually owns the building.
The insider gravy trains goes on and on.
All aboard!

for once I agree with the star. There is far too much secrecy on this project and not enough public oversight. The mayor is acting unilaterally.

We'll all be living in the projects if Sly has his way.

Sly is doubling his work load with so many people like Jermaine Reed and Canady lining up for a run at his seat.
Like mostly everything, this new age of nitwits won't care till it hits home and goes through.

What a silly plan. Can't believe KC would fall for this kind of junk. You like using the term "ponzi scheme" TKC. I think this would qualify.

The most efficient way to solve the question about whether KCMO needs/wants a new airport terminal is to:


EXILE MAYOR JAMES, COUNCIL MEMBER JUSTUS, COUNCIL MEMBER TAYLOR, and any of the others who seek to force their plan upon the public.

Burns and McDonnell is a WELFARE QUEEN. Kudos to the astute comment at 8:08PM which accurately reports the fact that the city actually built their new headquarters for them. And, it's important to add that this only happened after hundreds of Burns and McDonnell employees participated in a company coordinated political contribution lovefest for Sylvester James re-election campaign. A re-election race in which he faced a homeless political unknown. Burns and McDonnell, with only approximately 15-percent of employees residing within KCMO, paid Mayor James to turn tricks for them.

Mayor James SO DESPERATELY wants to impress non-residents by forcing KC to be a trendy Portland or Austin, that he should do everyone a favor and just MOVE ALREADY. He doesn't own real estate in KCMO, and he's sacrificed his family to pursue a self-centered narcissistic political hack career, so it's not like he'd really be missed in KC that much.

most people are ok with kci the way it is, but with some improvements.

We've already signed our grandchildren's lives away with the GO bonds, and who knows what else. We don't need a single-terminal airport. We need to fix the problems with the two remaining terminals. Put it to a vote.

Burns & McDonnell proposes private financing for new KCI single terminal since Tony is so reluctant to make an effort to tell the truth.

Sad to see the star treated like a press release outlet. They used to be a good paper!

Sly passes gas and calls in air freshener, fronting for Burns and Mac, Chamber fix of the year, nobody wants his priorities as the priorities-Airport, additional streetcar extension, hotel downtown

Note how they pretended all the priority would be on general infrastructure, but then they are right back to the trough for what the special interests wanted all along.
