How Will Kansas City Remember Mayor Sly?

The latest think piece from the Pitch starts a litany of MSM news blathering that feigns objectivity when most local newseis spent the last 8-years shinning the mayor's shoes.

Now that Sly James has no landing spot, no political capital, and has dropped in popularity . . . Kansas City newsies are now emboldened to pick apart his policies.

Check the comments from our blog community that might be far better than the source material. Read more:

Which side of Sly James will Kansas City remember: the Bow Tie or the Bully?

Kelby Reck Kansas City Mayor Sly James uses a phone app to track his time left in office. He can't check it often enough. "Ninety-one days, twelve hours, 34 minutes," he boisterously told an out-of-town developer at a ceremony marking construction progress on the new downtown convention hotel.

Even worse a mayor than funkyshit was, he’s definitely number one! ...... worst evar.

Definitely the worst mayor we ever had. A bullying, incompetent swine whose whole effort was to serve his developer masters while the city crumbled, slouched toward bankruptcy, and became one of the most violent cities in the country. The whole city should be ashamed of him.

“People who know James say he operates on a three-step formula: Here’s the problem, here’s the solution, let’s go. “
Very good description of a bully and it does not show the mediator he claims he is. Slie definitely bullied to get the failed fair weather toy train and renaming the Paseo through.

“It’s just not in his nature to sit in his office knowing a problem exists and not fix it,” says Joni Wickham, the mayor’s chief of staff.
“Mayors do things,” he says. “Other people argue about things.”
Slie knows about the crime problem, potholes, failing infrastructure, EPA mandate, failed supply of drinking water, failing MLK park, very high debt load of KCMO and the list goes on. Somehow Slie failed to sit in his office and not fix these problems.

One thing is for certain Kansas City is worse off.
We lead in violent crime, and the Plaza once the showpiece of Kansas city is a hell hole.

Mayor of over 1000 murders. Mayor of an economy that lagged the national average and peer cities. Mayor who gave tax breaks for favorable press. Mayor who ignored the will of the citizens. Mayor who demanded so much control he poisoned food for the homeless because it wasn't licensed. Mayor who failed to make progress on infrastructure even with GO bonds. Mayor who refused to look at flooding problems and refused to shovel the snow. Mayor who used his creds to help his delinquent son.

There is nothing nice to say about Sly James. Even those shitty bow looked stupid on him. So much #LiberalPrivilege with Sly...how could anyone look at his tenure in a positive light.

I will remember Sly as a trashy clown with a bow tie that is a bully and completely destroyed Kansas City with crime, taxes, and bike lanes. Quinton Lucas or Jolie Justus will finish it off.

Probably the worst mayor KC has ever had, and yes, I'm counting Funk and do-nothing Berkeley.
In spite of all this, there will be a KC street/ave/blvd eventually named after him, and we probably won't get to vote on it.

Yes, it's been bad. But just wait. It's about to get MUCH worse after the elections with yet another clown at the helm.

He will be remembered as a very bad Mayor and whichever one gets voted in next will stand right alongside him in the near future.

More people were murdered in KC than soldiers fighting abroad under his term. He couldn't give a shit either. We do have a frosty streetcar though.

8:56's tongue is in the mayor's poohole!

Total narcissist, bully and claims artist. All the City's so called, "momentum", is attributable to the national economic boom following the 2008 crash. He had nothing to do with it. He leaves a crime ridden City that will struggle with unsustainable debt during the next recession around the corner.

And Slie and Jolie's KCI project will prove to be a financial and operational disaster!!!

You meant to say: As a CROOKED LOSER. DIRTY DEALER on rigging an unnecessary airport, and ramming through an unwanted streetcar. Plus, THIEVING from taxpayers for an overbuilt downtown while the larger city crumbles. He's a BUM!!!!!! He's a shit CLOWN. Dirty deal IDJIT. He's a gigantic SINNER!

Sly will fondly be remembered as a lying fat lard ass criminal that bankrupted Kansas City.

He won't get credit for KCI, that will go to whichever nincompoop is in office when it's finally finished in 2036 0r 2040. The best he can hope for is his name on a plaque in some corner of the Plastic Terminal Box.

I hope he gets credit (blame) for the KCI mess as it unfolds: additional $1 Billion in cost overruns, lawsuits between Edgemore, contractors and sub-contractors, shoddy construction, delayed to 2024 opening, horrendous security lines, miles long walks to gates and fewer airlines serving KC. Thanks Sly!!
