Kansas City Mayor Sly Regrets Election FAIL

This report lets the lame duck politico spin double defeat and attempt to rewrite history.

The mayor speaks of his "failure to get the Streetcar extended on an east-west axis on Linwood" is a pathetic obfuscation. The toy train was headed to Brookside and outright REBELLION stopped it. Since that point it has been divided up into rigged smaller votes.

As for Pre-K, he's correct in lamenting his loss now that property tax hikes will kill any future tax increases for schools. Take a look:

Outgoing KCMO Mayor Sly James reflects on time in office

Sly James has just days left in his final term as Kansas City mayor - but looking around his office, you may not realize it. The outgoing mayor, whose last day will be July 31, says he's already cleaned out much of his office on the 29th floor of City Hall, but it's still brimming with seemingly hundreds of souvenirs, keepsakes and gifts from people he's met during his tenure.

Saw a streetcar platform being contructed on prostpect I think north of 31st st, not sure, didnt know that area was a part of the streetcar expansion plan.

well at least the property tax hike happened under his watch which will kill every future tax to be put on the ballot including the streetcar or anything involving education

His tie is never straight, his clothes never look good together, and worst mayor this city has ever seen. A complete slob!

Sly's been lying so often during the last eight years that he can't stop, even when what he says no longer matters at all.
Massive debt that it will take KCMO decades to get out from under.
Big loss for his terrible pre-K tax plan that even the school superintendents opposed.
Big big loss for his hand-picked successor, Justus.
And now, after his last finger in the eye to the taxpayers by enjoying a Hawaiian trip on the taxpayers' dime, and giving himself a taxpayer-funded going- away picnic, he'll quickly disappear.
And probably go back to chasing ambulances and suing the city.
Another KCMO celebrity!

SYLVESTER'S FATAL FLAW WAS HIS DESPERATE NEED FOR ATTENTION

“Nobody liked Kansas City, and we were always comparing ourselves to other places, wishing we could be St. Louis – always feeling inferior,” he says. “And now, after having those feelings, now we’re recognizing that we’re pretty damn nice. And we’re wearing KC on everything. We’ve got a little giddy-up in our step. We’ve won some ball games. We’re on the map. They’re putting us on TV on the soccer games. We’ve got a streetcar that other cities come to see about. We’re building stuff. We’ve got a new airport terminal coming in. We’re addressing situations on the east side."

Instead of constantly trying to impress outsiders, a real Mayor would focus on things like basic infrastructure, low taxes, efficiencies of municipal services, etc. Get the basics correct and residents will want to stay here, and visitors will consider moving here.

Listed successes? Really?
ToyTrain -- oppressive tax to provide a free service for tourists.
Turn the Page -- a PR stunt to use children as political props for a Mayor who thinks he's a school superintendent.
City-owned grocery -- a disastrous idea to intervene in private business supply/demand.
Beacon Hill -- same as grocery above.
Infrastructure -- blackmailed voters with G.O. Bond vote after squandering city budget funds on frivolous projects and giveaways.
Convention Center Hotel -- same as grocery above
Single-terminal -- FUBAR project that should have sent him and Justus to prison.

OMG, in the pic it appears he won't fit through those doors! Uh oh, maybe he CAN'T leave!

Cue the scene of his last day: A greased and nude Magic Bowtie is inching sideways between the jambs and gets stuck. Do the taxpayers foot the bill for sawing open the wall? Or, would Slippery Slie let taxpayers cut his guts out, like he did theirs?
