Kansas City Picks Up The Pieces After Mayor Sly's Corrupt No-Bid New Single-Terminal Airport Maneuver Crashed And Burned



Voters are playing the waiting game in talks about the new airport and hope that renovation might be still be a possibility.

Either way . . .

A VOTE ON THE NEW AIRPORT REMAINS A TOUGH SELL AND THE KEY TO VICTORY HINGES ON THE LACK OF ORGANIZED OPPOSITION . . . LIKE MOST KANSAS CITY ELECTIONS!!!

A boring referendum about jobs, and building and "better" whatever is already underway and the challenge in this part of the process is to get everybody on board with a new plan.

Council hopes to accomplish as much with the new RFP after the Mayor's takeoff FAILED . . .

look around the country, almost every single new airport built has been a very expensive disappointment.

Nice to see this shit stain of a blog continues to attract attention from the bottom feeding scum.

I di want to offer up one click so you can talk up your prowess to that disinterested barista.

I guess you're part of the bottom feeders then because you're here too. Typical liberal @8:36 - would rather bitch and moan than contribute anything constructive or better. As for the airport, just another KC scam that's par for the course for the Democrat grifters. They'll ruin the airport for some money and then leave future generations to clean up the mess.

Dang. Half million gone in just a couple weeks. I haven't seen money spent that fast since Brewster's Millions.

The star article says two lawyers, one billing $1,000/hr and the other billing $500/hr, racked up $475,000 in billings in four weeks. McManus and Justus say we received good advice from them. I question that. In order to rack up that much in billings in that short a time, they needed to each put on 79 hours per week. No one gives good advice working 16 hours a day.

^^^^ funny how that works innit? There was another city in the metro several years ago where the no-bid appointed consultant burned through the entire federal grant for a 9 month project in like three or four weeks, with minimal receivables and poor work. Fed said let us see the work, City and the selected consultant didn't/couldn't produce, so they snatched the fed funding away and ordered repayment. Corruption runs STRONG in the democrat circles, well in politicians in general too.
