KANSAS CITY #BETTERKCI FACT CHECK: NON-BINDING EDGEMOOR RESOLUTION DECEIVES NEW AIRPORT VOTERS!!!
This week, all of Kansas City media conspired to keep voters stupid on the reality of the hot mess which confronts City Hall amid ongoing airport negotiations.
First, check the City Hall talking points from a Council Lady who has staked her career on KCI despite far more pressing concerns in her district:
Reality which contradicts "back on track" hype:
1. This resolution is NON-BINDING. Council could rip it up and throw it away overnight if they wanted. It's supposed to be a sign of good faith and simply something that would stifle ongoing debate and public disappointment with this ugly process.
2. AECOM & Burns & Mac team are pushing hard to get back into the mix via Union connections, support from J.E. Dunn insiders and consultants who simply feel better "dealing" with locals. This is about more than press conferences and public pronouncements - Instead, it's sort of a citywide "gentlemen's agreement" to keep this work completely local in a way that risks the integrity (lol) of the entire project.
3. Look for more collaboration for airport cash - We've got more news on this front but the basic idea is to bring enough people into this sketchy process that criticism (and investigation) would offend too many people to take hold.
A bold prediction . . .
BURNS & MAC WILL INEVITABLY FIND AN EPIC NEW AIRPORT PAYDAY AMID THE UPCOMING TALKS WHICH THREATEN TO BECOME AN EVEN BIGGER CIRCUS IN 2018!!!
