KANSAS CITY THROWBACK THURSDAY: MAYOR SLY'S SECRECY AND SKETCHY TACTICS RUINED NEW SINGLE-TERMINAL AIRPORT FROM THE START!!!
An EPIC public works program building cutting edge tech and convenience in Kansas City should've been an easy win but Mayor Sly James, his HUGE ego along with the dozen or so greedy corporate crooks who run this town totally screwed it up.
And so . . .
THE THREAT OF MORE LEGAL DRAMA AND A LACKLUSTER NEW AIRPORT CAMPAIGN CONFRONT KANSAS CITY BECAUSE LOCAL LEADERS GOT GREEDY!!!
A billion dollar project was enough for all of the major players in KC to build a fortune from . . . The cash might have even offered some improvement in the lives of worker bees and the lower wage slave class.
Sadly . . .
THE NEW SINGLE-TERMINAL NEW AIRPORT PYRAMID SCHEME WAS POISONED FROM THE START AND THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION IS SIMPLY UNQUALIFIED TO LEAD THIS EFFORT THAT HAS ALREADY CRASHED AND BURNED FOR SO MANY LOCAL COMPANIES!!!
One more . . .
A NO VOTE IN NOVEMBER IS THE ONLY WAY TO FINALLY KILL THIS IDEA AND START OVER WHEN MAYOR SLY HAS TERMED OUT!!!
There are a lot of people to blame here . . . Council Lady Jolie Justus and Corporatist Mike Talboy kinda cashed-in their "up with the people" branding on this deal.
But the buck stops with Mayor Sly and as this misguided fantastic voyage which began with a silly press conference and a horrific attempt to keep Kansas City residents out of the loop. Next time around, maybe voters and smaller biz should be where the effort STARTS.
Check the links:
KCUR: The potentially billion dollar project would be one of the largest in the city's history, if ultimately approved by voters in November.
Burns & Mac: "We are incredibly proud of the great efforts of our KCI HOMETOWN Team and the commitment these 30-plus local companies, and their thousands of local employees, made to their hometown. We know, like us, they are heartbroken.
KCTV5: City officials said the Edgemoor proposal had the lowest cost and stands to gain the smallest profit of all the proposals.
Fox4: The full city council still has to approve Edgemoor. Burns & McDonnell's Vice President said he's confident they still made the city the best offer. Currently Burns & McDonnell has not said they will legally challenge the decision.
