The Downtown Council's Fuzzy Math

On Friday, Kansas City's Downtown Council hosted its annual luncheon, titled "Downtown K.C. Smart City? Or The Smartest City?" If that makes you think the Council is more interested in boosterism than sound analysis, its "State of Downtown" report won't make you feel any better.

Numbers are scary. Numbers often tell us that what government proposes is just not possible. How does government respond? They tell us that we shouldn't overwork our little brains. After all, numbers are scary.

The downtown council should be embarrassed to present numbers like these in a format like this. Lately it seems that all levels of government and quasi government organizations are simply trying to hoodwink the public.

Just look at the funding, Downtown Council gets most of their money from City Hall, it's like a perpetual motion scam machine. They just keep reinforcing one another with their bad ideas.

Sad that anyone believes it.

Of course downtown KC is rigging the numbers they get paid by the businesses to do promotion. They have even stopped funding the street sweepers to a large extent. That was the only decent thing that downtown KC Council ever did. Now it's just a marketing agency like about half the businesses working in KCMO.

Downtown Council is operating under the pretense of:

PROPAGANDIZE IT, AND THEY WILL COME

Thanks to The Show-Me Institute for peeling away the purposely opaque outer layer of lies on the State of Downtown onion.
