TKC TUESDAY NIGHT ELECTION WATCH QUESTION: SHOULD KANSAS CITY NAME THE NEW AIRPORT AFTER MAYOR SLY JAMES???
First, a quick update on voter turnout from one of our pals living on the nicer side of the bridge . . .
"Voting at Northland polling places higher than usual turnout for special elections - Per Election Board poll workers. My estimate is that maybe 20-25% higher than normal."
Another note from a media insider:
I’ve driven by three precincts and there was big turnout for off year.
"I get the same feeling as one year ago when Trump won. And I predicted that shortly after he entered the race. Many people I spoke with are fed up with how this whole thing went down. They may like the idea of a new airport but they're saying “NO” right now to show leaders they need to listen to voters and do this the right way."
This is a good sign for opponents of Question #1 and possibly a glimmer of hope given the seemingly endless litany of hype dominating this vote . . .
But looking ahead . . .
PROPONENTS OF THE NEW AIRPORT ALREADY WANT TO HONOR MAYOR SLY JAMES BY NAMING THE NEW KANSAS CITY SINGLE-TERMINAL IN HIS HONOR . . . DO YOU SUPPORT THIS TRIBUTE???
Yes, it's still too early for this talk but the Better KCI folks are already declaring victory via social media.
The obvious yet still chuckle-worthy suggestion: Prez Trump Kansas City Airport - Which doesn't make sense given the lack of International flights to Russia.
You decide . . .
