TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! BURNS & MAC #BETTERKCI NEW KANSAS CITY AIRPORT COMEBACK WITH LOVE FROM CITY HALL!!!



MSM and social media are calling today's presser "news" but our AWESOME TKC BLOG COMMUNITY talked about and predicted this inevitability last week.

To wit . . .

OF COURSE BURNS & MAC WANTS BACK INTO THE NEW AIRPORT BID AND TEAM SLY SEEMS TO BE DOING THEIR BEST TO RIG THE PROCESS AGAIN!!!

Check the round-up of "news" from City Hall dutifully transcribed in order to provide little options for voters after a rigged election revealed a systemic level of corruption in Kansas City.

What can we expect next???

Unions and The Heavies will endorse this bid but won't tell locals that they spiked Edgemoor's deal.

MEANWHILE THIS DECISION HAS NOW BEEN RIPPED AWAY FROM VOTERS IS NOW PART OF ELECTION SEASON CITY HALL DRAMA!!! #GOODLUCK!!!

Checkit the best links on the topic:

Kansas City - Best Democracy money can buy!

Burns & Mac own the mayor and thereby the KCMO. It's was a good investment of only around 50,000.

Seems roughly like how progress goes in this city anyway. Could be a blessing in disguise like the failure of the "aerial gondola" transit plan was.

Shady from the get go and it was irresponsible for Kansas Citians to vote for this without clear and precise detail.

KC should be very afraid of Burns & McDonell.

Did everyone forget they tried to force a no-bid contract on the city?

They literally said "here is a bid for a new airport but if you ask for a competing bid we refuse to do it" and then ran commercials how we should tell the city council to accept it because they "would do right".

Please watch this on the airport. Explains it all said...

This documentary does a good job of explaining the whole mess: The KCI Affair: Triumph Or Fiasco?

Airport will cost 2 billion now. And will be small and less convenient. Thanks Sly!

How long before the FBI investigates the massive corruption in this process? The mayor and city council's motto should be "If you ain't cheatin',
you ain't tryin'".

@ 4:27, what makes you think a majority of Kansas City residents voted in favor of the "New" Airport? Don't forget who counts the votes.
