CHECK THIS ARGUMENT AGAINST THE KANSAS CITY NO BID AGENDA CHAMPIONED BY MAYOR SLY & CO. THIS SUMMER!!!
Take a look:
Update on Hotel, Airport And Streetcar
After two weeks of attempted intimidation and bullying from the NO BID downtown convention hotel developers, let me thank all of you who gathered signatures or signed our Referendum Petition to put the NO BID downtown convention hotel on the November ballot. On Friday afternoon, CFRG turned into the City Clerk signatures to place the NO BID downtown convention hotel on the November ballot. Now we taxpayers can decide whether or not we want to spend our tax money on this project. By the time the process is finished, we will have had over 10,000 KCMO voters sign our petitions to get this NO BID convention hotel on the ballot. We think that speaks pretty clearly the public wants their say on this project. BUT it is not over, read on.
There is a lot going on so we thought we would forward a heads up. The City Council is off this week but it will all start again next week. The Mayor, City Manager, City Attorney and some of their sheeple on the city council will begin the process of doing several things which are not in the best interest of the KCMO taxpaying voters. You pretty much know who the culprits are!
> They will try to pass an MOU on the new Burns and McDonnell NO BID single terminal airport plan without even being able to verify the B$M guys have any assets. More on that later.
> Then they will try to thwart our Referendum Petition on the NO BID downtown convention hotel with a new ordinance #170394 adding some things, changing zoning, etc. They believe this will render our Referendum Petition invalid. We will need to get active and let the council know how the voters feel. Again these hotel guys and gal have never produced a balance sheet or let the council know who the “investors” are. Maybe they don’t have any. They appear to have no assets yet some on our council are willing to fork over, free of charge, our funds from the convention and visitors bureau ($35,000,000), our land ($5,000,000) and our future income from property taxes plus incentives ($127,000,000). All totaled $167,000,000, over half the cost of the NO BID downtown convention hotel. Any council member not challenging this new NO BID downtown convention hotel ordinance is not qualified to be the Mayor of our great city.
Here’s where it starts:
FINAL AIRPORT MEETING: Monday June 5TH 5:30 pm at the Bruce R Watkins Cultural Center, 3700 Blue Parkway, Kansas City, MO.
This will be an excellent location to raise the question of what the city is doing under its legal obligation to protect the history of the life and graves of slaves and plantation owners in Platte County.
Try to get some answers from B$M who have never built an airport from the ground up. Where are their assets? What do they own? How can they support a $2 - $3 billion project if it experiences problems? and on and on…
