TKC MUST READ!!! MAYOR SLY COVERS HIMSELF ON EDGEMOOR MOU AND PREPS KANSAS CITY FOR 2ND AIRPORT VOTE!!!



Today's statement from Mayor Sly offers pleasant words and just a hint at the future . . .

First up . . .

- In this note Mayor Sly is still playing the blame game with the Council despite the fact that the HIS OFFICE PUSHED the airport election and the rushed process that has landed KCMO in a hot mess.

- "Good faith" in City Hall is a bad joke given this town's history and the Mayor's consistent reputation of subverting local Democracy and keeping voters out of so many local decisions. Example: Streetcar TDD.

- About the "open to the public" process - Translation - Our readers point out at that this nightmare of corporate intrigue MUST go back to voters now that a Pandora's box of options now confront KCI.

Take a look:

Kansas City Mayor's Sly's Blog: In Good Faith

Money line:

"So let’s fix this. We are a city built on big ideas, bold action, and a commitment to getting things done. If we want to continue building on the momentum we’re enjoying, then let’s get this negotiation back on track.

"I’m proposing that the City Manager continue engaging in good faith negotiations with Edgemoor and bring back a revised MOU for City Council consideration. If an agreement cannot be reached, then the City Manager must report back to the Council why an agreement could not be reached and the process for selecting a developer will start over. At that point, I would propose that the process be open to the public.

Building an airport terminal is an enormous undertaking for a city. It’s a huge investment that will have lasting effects on the economic development of the city and region as a whole. A project of this magnitude takes good faith, communication and trust. And it takes leadership and commitment that I’m confident this City can provide."
