TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! NEW KCI SINGLE-TERMINAL STALLED!!! REDESIGN RUCKUS: MAYOR SLY SHUTS DOWN FAILING PLAN!!!



Here's confirmation that Kansas City voters had no ideas what they were voting for and the designs we've seen so far are nothing more than cute drawings:

KSHB: Mayor, city plan second look at new KCI scope

KCUR: Kansas City Mayor Sly James Says Airlines Will Revisit Scope Of Single Terminal At KCI

Money line . . .

“Since the project cannot move forward with further design and construction until environmental approvals are granted, the airlines have requested as part of their due diligence, and we have agreed, to take a second look at the project scope and ensure everyone is comfortable,” James said in the statement.

Reality . . .

WITH SKYROCKETING COSTS AND AIRLINE OPPOSITION: MAYOR SLY WAS FORCED TO BACK DOWN OR THE ENTIRE DEAL WOULD'VE FALLEN APART!!!

And now we wait . . .

The reality is that Mayor Sly is using the "nuclear" approach because he's basically powerless and the airport isn't going to get sorted out until after the election.

Developing . . .

Time for another vote.

A proposal for a remodel should be on the table.

I see he's still clinging to that 1.4 billion number, a huge lie considering that the cost is now more than double.

So what's the plan now? Wait until 2033 when it'll cost 10 billion?

How can a "deal" that never existed fall apart?
Millions already spent on consultants and legal fees and there isn't even a serious plan or actual drawing of the building.
This whole fiasco started out really weak and has actually gotten worse as it's moved along.
Maybe the National Geographic recommendation of KC as a place to visit was based on inviting anyone who wanted to learn about how a city can be grossly mismanaged to come on down.
The original "Gang Who Couldn't Shoot Straight"!

Thanks a lot sly. A billion dollar deal with no terms, clauses contracts or binding agreements! Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me. Just think that we need to go back to the drawing board on this one, agree with Sly on that. But we need somebody more capable in charge of the discussion. Not Jolie Justus.

Remember how councilman dwi was bragging about how much money the city was going to save with Clark. The airlines are in charge and SW will get what they want.

According to the news this morning, can’t trust anything they say but, they claim the smaller airlines are being forced to pay for some high dollar baggage system they can’t afford, if true are the bigger airlines trying to run out the smaller guys? Wouldn’t be surprised one bit. Cluster f@$k of epic proportions. Our city officials are incompetent and should all be thrown out and we should be allowed to elect new, competent people who put us first. This is what people should be protesting but instead we have people wearing pussy hats fighting for dumb shit.

You're absolutely right that the voters of KCMO should elect competent people.
But look at the roster of mayoral candidates.
See anyone there who fits the bill?
It never changes.

Unfortunately people are too stupid in Kansas City to realize what a failure Democrats really are. You would think that there would be enough smart people in Kansas City to outvote the iliterate, welfare loving, tax spending moronic masses of K.C., but unfortunately the MSM pushes their anti-conservative narrative and people actually believe it.
