Quite the economic recovery. Not only can people not pay for a basic emergency they can't even afford their own funeral.

Not only did we lose the women’s team to Salt Lake City and Swope Park rangers to a high school in kansas, sporting kc moved their practices to Kansas as well. Im too smart for you peons sLIE has ruined soccer city with his b.s. They moved partially because of the crime and murders in the city and it affected attendance to the games down there. With no one at city hall trying to get a handle on these things it was wise to move them before something bad happened

Absolutely nobody who matters cares about soccer. It is a sport for faggots.

So now that the money for the Swope soccer fields was taken inappropriately from the Winchester TIF fund that should have been used to connect residents in the area to the sewer system, but wasn't, now the "project" has no market.
Yet another great business decision made by the gang, actually one of the former gang, at 12th and Oak.
Now watch the lack of oversight, maintenance, and safety allow this multi-million dollar "investment" to quickly deteriorate.
It just never ends!
