Greater Kansas City Chamber Offers Urban Tribute Amid Ongoing Corporate Patronage
The agenda of the Chamber has been mostly destructive toward the urban core and neighborhoods throughout the Kansas City metro. Their tax & spend tactics have consistently directed taxpayer cash toward big biz welfare and away from infrastructure, schools and libraries.
However, branding mini-moives offer another image that's unchallenged by local media.
First example . . .
"Missouri-based mural artist Sike and Kansas-based mural artist JT collaborated with Plexpod and the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce on two special murals for the Chamber’s 132nd Annual Dinner, November 26, 2019. One mural is located at Plexpod’s River Market location on Delaware, and the other at Plexpod’s Lenexa location on Marshall Drive. They represent the strength, unity, and connection of #GreaterKC."
Regionalism is just one of many questionable ideas touted by The Chamber.
This week an honor for KC Legend Mr. Brooks also worked to bolster the inner city connections of the elite organization which, in reality, has few urban affiliations beyond similar public relations efforts.
