TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! NEW KCI LAWSUIT THREATS FLYING AMONGST TEAM SLY, EDGEMOOR & THE COUNCIL BEHIND THE SCENES!!!
The New Kansas City Airport is stalled and local media isn't "reporting" anything but presser garbage and happy talk whilst the tone of the discussion behind closed doors has become downright vicious.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY INSIDERS REPORT A NEW ROUND OF AIRPORT LAWSUIT THREATS THIS TIME TARGETING INDIVIDUAL COUNCIL MEMBERS WHO HAVE ALLEGEDLY 'OBSTRUCTED' THE HOPELESSLY STALLED PROJECT!!!
Throughout his tenure Mayor Sly's team has used the lawsuit threat skillfully to back up rushed deals and scare away any real criticism or opposition.
However, this time around, the lame duck Mayor and his team aren't scaring the Council -- Comprised of half a dozen of his colleagues who now want his job.
Here's the word . . .
"If the Mayor's people think that bullying council is the way to get this deal moving again, they must be forgetting that his term is just about finished. (Mayor) Sly has always used the threat of lawsuits but we're talking about hundreds of millions of dollars here, if we have to go to court to save KC from committing to a disaster and get more input from the public, I think the voters will understand. Getting this right is important enough to keep having tough conversations in public. The behind the scenes influence peddling is getting out of hand, the Mayor's team just doesn't have that kind of authority any longer."
Anybody who claims they know what's next for KCI is probably faking it. Fact is, the only thing for sure is that the new airport costs continue to skyrocket, deals are following apart and resistance to the current plan has garnered momentum . . . #TBT -- Longstanding questions about Edgemoor's ability to bring the project in without going horribly over-budget continue to arise.
Meanwhile, old school KCI serves the people of Kansas City at a record breaking pace whilst the Aviation department censors/blocks TKC on airport WIFI because of hottie models but continues to allow the sale of pr0n in the terminal gift shops.
