TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! CORONAVIRUS STATE OF EMERGENCY PROVES KANSAS CITY WASTED TOO MUCH MONEY ON TOURISM!!!
For more than a decade Kansas City taxpayers have been suckered into investing hundreds of millions of dollars on sketchy schemes to lure visitors downtown and now a real world crisis has stopped that so-called "momentum" right in its tracks.
To wit . . .
THE KANSAS CITY COVID-19 SHUT DOWN DEMONSTRATES WHY 12TH & OAK TOURISM AND ENTERTAINMENT PRIORITIES ARE SO DANGEROUSLY MISPLACED!!!
Don't worry, we've got examples . . .
When Kansas City should have been hiring more police officers to combat rising crime, we've been wasting time pushing a RIGGED streetcar scheme that has failed to secure federal funding that should now help the fight against COVID-19.
Kansas City desperately needs investment in water infrastructure throughout the city . . . Sadly, only the Sprint Center & P & L District have earned constant accommodation, promotion and MILLIONS worth of taxpayer subsidy from our political leadership.
Now, as the coronavirus decimates international travel and tourism, the grand opening of a Kansas City Convention Hotel is just a few weeks away.
And just to prove we haven't learned our lesson, just last month KC fanboys starting promoting a Downtown Stadium. Now, as the MLB season has been postponed . . . The dream of luxury apartments coupled with America's pastime has suffered only a temporary setback.
Sadly, the cowtown culture of corporate welfare, corruption and hype persists as the debate over cornonavirus falls along partisan lines whilst the complicity by "many sides" of the political spectrum places Kansas City in a state of emergency and on the hook for quite a few expensive parties which have now been cancelled.
