TKC MUST SEE!!! CELEBRATE THE NEW VISIT KC APPOINTEES!!!
Almost think that the slap fight over TIF appointments was a distraction from this far more interesting list and a resolution sponsored by Mayor Quinton Lucas which contains some family ties , rewards for council allies and NEXTGEN tourism players . . .
Ordinance #190931: Consenting to the appointments of Teresa Loar, Kevin O’Neill, Melissa Robinson, Rodney Bland, Mike Cappo, Allen Dietrich, Nia Richardson, Kris Riddell, Maria Salcedo, and Lylette Uts and the reappointments of Kevin Pistilli and Riccardo Lucas to the board of directors of the Kansas City Conventions and Visitors Association doing business as Visit KC.
Nevertheless, we hope that these new appointees have what it takes to clean up this sketchy organization which has consistently "EXAGGERATED" tourism numbers, engaged in mindless boosterism AND maintained quite a few sketchy biz connections.
As always, Kansas City voters hope for a change from the old boss to the new . . .
You decide . . .
