The fight for the new Kansas City airport isn't over, in fact, it just started.
Kansas City noobs, newsies and infrequent voters didn't read the text of the latest vote and might not understand that there's still a great deal of debate confronting Kansas City regarding the future of KCI.
Only Mayor Sly and his army of consultant creeps want total submission from the electorate after a low turnout mostly rigged election . . .
Accordingly . . .
THE LATEST E-MAIL BLAST FROM COUNCIL LADY HEATHER HALL OFFERS AN AWESOME PREVIEW OF UPCOMING AIRPORT DEBATE AND FUTURE CITY HALL FIGHTING!!!
Remember that she didn't sign on to the new airport hype and now seems to be dedicated to making sure the taxpayers aren't getting fleeced on the upcoming deal.
Here's the word . . .
Councilwoman Heather Hall On KCI Airport
Citizens of District 1, Kansas City and Clay County,
The people of Kansas City voted Tuesday to construct a single terminal at KCI. Through the entire process, I will work to ensure:
1. That the people of KC get a vote
2. There needs to be transparency in the process (see Ordinance 170552)
3. A detailed MOU with the developer to ensure proper MBE/WBE requirements are being met, timelines are accurate and budgets do not exceed reasonable amounts.
4. Most importantly, No annual appropriations of City funds will be spent on the airport (see Ordinance 170836)
I will continue to have the best interest for the people of District 1, Kansas City and Clay County as my number one priority as the process moves forward.

Northland denizens send the note our way . . .
And now a round-up of far less forthright conversation on the new airport . . .
Construction Promises Start Now
Flights will continue out of Terminals B and C, Terminal A will be demolished to make way for the new single-terminal structure.
Dead-Tree Armchair Analysis
Anyone who tells you he or she knew the new KCI terminal would win 3-1 is lying. Sure, lots of people predicted the measure would pass, perhaps easily. The most optimistic outsiders thought it might win by 10 points or so. It won by 50 points. That kind of landslide tells a story.
The KCMO Agenda Takes Flight
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - One day after a landslide election to approve building a new terminal at Kansas City International Airport, the mayor said it is time to reward voters for their faith. At a news conference Wednesday morning, Kansas City Mayor Sly James called Tuesday's election result a "resounding vote of confidence."
