When Governor Parson came to KC he held the meeting at the Chamber of Commerce.
Not at city hall or the county courthouse.
Or some other public venue.
At the Chamber Board Room.
That's all you need to know.

How about an IT, robotics and engineering campus. The arts are a rich kid or in debt kid pursuits with little job prospects.

IT, Robotics and Engineering jobs will be in crisis within ten years, as AI moves from the Labs to the Marketplace.
All of them are far too dependent on unreliable "wetware"!

"Robotic Art" however, relies too much on a lack of innovation to ever be significant.
For proof of this, go on any First Friday Gallery Tour and take a look at the robot's output.

A "definite maybe" means he is waiting for the appropriate campaign contributions. Greitens may have been an ass but now we have a governor for sale to the highest bidder.
