Once again Kansas City's incompetence in developing a multi-billion dollar plan has been called into question.
To wit . . .

A few more fun facts regarding Congressman Graves . . .
Rep. Graves is a majority member of United States House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure
Congressman Graves is also a senior member on the United States House Transportation Subcommittee on Aviation
And now . . .
A KICK-ASS TKC READER and Kansas City Insider offers us a perspective on this major blunder from City Hall brought to light by Congressman Graves offering open opposition of the single-terminal airport plan.
"How in the #@*%! do you not make sure the Congressman for the district in which the airport resides is not part of the deal? Even worse, he's a member of not one but TWO congressional committees that have a major impact on EVERYTHING having to do with the airport. This isn't just an oversight, it's either arrogance or ignorance. Whatever the case, the fact that Congressman Graves isn't on board with the single-terminal plan and he's willing to go on record and say so in a PUBLIC MEETING should inform everyone that Kansas City hasn't done their homework on this proposal and City Hall shouldn't be trusted to take on a project of this magnitude."
And so Kansas City local government "ignorance or arrogance" has once again thwarted their big plans from taking flight . . . And in this instance City Hall incompetence in developing a monumental project has actually worked to the advantage of residents for the moment.
Developing . . .
