KANSAS CITY CHRISTMAS EVE: MAYOR SLY'S LAME DUCK WISH LIST 2019!!!
On this magical night we offer a quick peek of Kansas City Mayor Sly's future machinations and power moves ahead before he's forced back into obscurity to take drink orders for the power players at the Chamber in private.
To wit . . .
KICK-ASS KANSAS CITY INSIDERS OFFER US A PEEK AT MAYOR SLY'S WISH LIST BEFORE HIS TERM EXPIRES!!!
Most of these are pretty obvious but it's still worth knowing how this town's big boss will end his reign.
City Hall Funding For New Airport Despite Promises KCMO Wouldn't Have To Pay
Mayor Sly's in danger of messing up his greatest legacy. The airport is STALLED and the debate is more intense than the mostly corrupt KC news is willing to admit.
It gets worse . . .
The new airport construction process needs nearly $50-million bucks to keep going and Aviation DOESN'T HAVE IT.
Sadly, most of the "news" we hear about the airport is lies and this historic project has the potential to be the worst economic disaster in this town's history.
So, some time in the very near future the Mayor and the Council are going to have ANOTHER very big fight about borrowing more cash on the taxpayer's dime in order to finance this ponzi scheme with a flimsy wood roof. Let's not forget that some of the top newspaper pundits promised us they'd be building BEFORE the end of 2018.
Toy Train Streetcar Extension
The smallish "folly trolley" with the faux stats is mayor's biggest transit win but the money train needs to keep rolling in order to keep up that "momentum" that's constantly touted. Sadly, the Feds don't seem to like this scheme that's based mostly on voter suppression. And so the streetcar requires a miracle or at least another way to fleece biz & neighborhoods without providing a CITYWIDE vote that was mandated by a recent election.
Even More Regressive KCMO Taxes
It's not just Pre-K . . . Mayor Sly has more tricks up his sleeve for making the cost of living spike even higher for the urban core denizens of this town. Affordable housing, more downtown development and even another East Crossroads surprise is on the slate for the New Year as the cost of "success" based mostly on tax breaks is a constant stream of more unearned profits.
And so . . .
Sadly, Santa can't deliver any of these goodies for Mayor Sly tonight but that doesn't mean the sugar plum dreams aren't dancing through his head as the legend of the jolly legend dances about this town tonight.
