TKC MUST READ!!! OUT OF TOWN CONSULTANTS RULE KANSAS CITY EXPENSIVE NEW AIRPORT CAMPAIGN!!!
An important bit of community journalism reminds us that Mayor Sly might talk about buying local but his actions are sending cash flying out Kansas City's political community in favor of his longtime campaign cronies.
Northeast News: Follow the Money – right out of town
Money line . . .
"There wasn’t one single locally-owned and operated campaign consulting agency in Kansas City worth awarding this high-dollar, posh piece of business to??? It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that most of that $1,000,000 is going to benefit the economies of Chicago and Philly, not Kansas City. All this comes on the heels of the Mayor’s big push for Amazon to pick Kansas City for the location of one of its corporate HQ’s."
And so, as the vote approaches in November . . . This town already confronts a great many broken promises and deception from supporters of project that could change the course of Kansas City, mostly for the benefit of corporate interlopers.
