SHAME!!! KANSAS CITY AUTO SHOW THREATENS TO ABANDON DOWNTOWN AFTER CONVENTION CENTER CONVERTED TO HOMELESS COVID WARMING CENTER!!!

 

It turns out the economic border war betwixt Kansas & Missouri is back on despite promises from politicos on both sides of the state line. 

Even worse . . .

HELPING THE HOMELESS HURT THE DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY BRAND!!!

Selling overpriced cars to suckers is all about crafting an image . . . Sadly, charity for the less fortunate doesn't inspire motorist dreams. 

Moreover, some of the smarter denizens of our blog community noted that there would be long term consequences for setting up a hobo hangout at a place of business.

Check the damage . . .

KSHB: KC Auto Show officials want to move from Missouri to Kansas

Deets:

The auto show has historically been held in Bartle Hall at the Kansas City Convention Center in March.

Larry Carl, CEO of the Automobile Dealers Association of Greater Kansas City sent written testimony to lawmakers in support of Senate Bill 33. In Carl's testimony, he expressed interest in moving the auto show to the Kansas Speedway for a June 2021 event.

"The inherent nature of drivability at the Speedway creates consumer excitement and enthusiastic engagement that all parties desire," Carl said.

Carl added in his testimony that the move would be beneficial for the Kansas, Wyandotte County and other communities,

"The desire to move the Kansas City Auto Show from Missouri to Kansas is a major move, but one that is ripe with opportunity and benefit," Carl said. "At the heart of the shift is to provide consumers with a reinvigorated and innovative event. We are going through this process because it is the proper way to administer change and compliance."

On Twitter, Mayor Quinton Lucas called plans to move the long-established auto event out of KCMO "unbalanced regionalism at its finest."

The auto show has been going downhill for a while. This is just what it needs to be a great event.

Oh no another gimme gimme gimme hand out giveaway to private industry that’s going to Kansas. That’s like finding out your 32-year-old son is moving out of the basement. Nobody cries.

Bad PR for the Home Show to open with homeless at Bartle.

You are completely full of shit, Tony.

Kansas SB33, which would allow the event to take place in Kansas, was introduced on January 14th. The letter of support posted to the Kansas Senate Transportation Committee was written January 21st. Not sure why those dates are important? The Scott Eicke warming center did not open at Bartle Hall until January 29th. This attempted move of the auto show was being planned long before the warming center even existed. The move has absolutely nothing to do with the current use of Bartle Hall.

LMAO. Why would they want to open in a crime-infested shit hole like KCMO? Same reason other businesses said no to KC and yes to Kansas. No one wants to go there anymore. No one feels safe. Remember the tiny punk ass mayor marching with BLM and Antifa yelling "no justice, no peace?" Well, Karma is biting you in the ass right now, isn't it. Fucking scumbag whining about "regionalism." You made your rat-infested bed, now lie in it, Pucas.
