TKC FUN FACT: EVERYBODY AGAINST KANSAS CITY NEW EDGEMOOR AIRPORT!!!
And so, a busted bidding process that turned into a media circus has been finalized by City Council and now heads to the ballot in November.
Meanwhile, we wanted to share one of the best quotes on this deal from our blog community: "Still no agreement, no details, no pictures. So far it's Nancy Pelosi International - you have to build it to see what's in it. No thanks."
A few things to consider:
- No, this isn't Mayor Sly playing 3D Chess . . . Burns & Mac supports him with real money, he lamented the choice at the outset of the vote on Thursday and seems distant from a process where he was defeated after the rigged "hometown team" scheme fell apart.
- Burns & Mac might still have a case about this process . . . The smarter thing to do is wait but they might not want to risk losing ONE BILLION DOLLARS.
- November is coming quickly, Edgemoor and City Hall don't have much time to convince skeptical voters.
Finally, the voted public has been LARGELY EXCLUDED FROM THIS SECRETIVE AND CONVOLUTED PROCESS . . . If the opposition can mount any kind of campaign at all, the support for this unseen idea seems limited.
You decide . . .
