Kansas City Star Touts East Side Agenda For Mayor Sly James

While the Northland dominates the City's growth, Midtown struggles with rising crime and South KC is mostly a wasteland . . . The newspaper advocates East Side efforts for a mayor who has focused most of his energies on supporting Downtown developers and corporate cronies. Checkit:

What Mayor Sly James could do during his last 19 months in office

With the successful push to build a new single-terminal airport now behind Mayor Sly James, how should he spend his final 19 months in office? Two words, really: East Side. So many Kansas Citians who live east of Troost have long felt that City Hall was mostly interested in helping those who need it least.

It’s the central core people, the real east side is east of the stadiums. Fuck the central core where they’ve wasted over a hundred million dollars since the 80’s and there’s nothing to show for it. The blacks have no respect for anything. It’s way past time to spend that money elsewhere where people pay taxes and give a damn. This time sLIE is right to ignore these idiots in that part of town, make them earn it and maybe they’ll respect it.

The star is still sucking sly's "thanks for the tax breaks" crank.

Too little too late. Got shot at rehabbing an East Side house last week. It is off-the-hook crazy East of Troost. This Mayor has done less-than-zero to improve the conditions of his poorest constituents. Rising water, sewer, electrical and property tax rates while blowing hundreds of millions on fake trains. What. A. Joke.

Mayor Sly and Congressman Big Mouth neither one are going to do anything that benefits everyone like every good politician should.

Two meme's that need to be gone from office ASAP!

KCMO covers too large of an area to be ran correctly. It needs to divided up along county lines.

TOP PHOTO -- BLACK MAGIC

In the blink of an eye, the magic bow-tie levitated all the incentives and tax breaks away from the East-side!!!

I hear Cleaver and Sly are begging Trump for a huge Federal grant for a landing strip so Bolonzo can land his Toys 'R Us crime fighting drone.

Hundreds of millions have gone into the east side over the last fifty years. .You can't depend,on the government. Go out and make your own zillions and you won't have to worry about the government helping you..And speaking of the east side. There are a number of suburban towns that will experience white flight like the east side did in the 60s.,and 70s,as crime and drugs move into there town they will move farther from the metro area.

All the growth in the Northland? Really? Oh, you mean the airport. BFD
Otherwise, all the so-called growth consists of a Burger King or Cane's Chicken Fingers. Again, BFD.
