New Airport Proposal

The pictures and drawings we’ve seen of their proposed single terminal airport, indicate what they are proposing is not as convenient and it is not as safe as the reinforced solid concrete terminals we have now. We believe the majority of these enlightened individuals will vote NO on NO-vember 7th. They will wait for a plan to remodel the existing terminals into a totally new modern facility, which we presented to them, before they vote yes.

WILL AMAZON #2 COME TO KANSAS CITY?

It’s just a matter of time before it’s announced AMAZON #2 will be coming to a neighborhood near you. Why not? Everything in Kansas City is FREE!!!! FREE STREETCAR ... FREE AIRPORT.... FREE EVERYTHING! Oops, Not so fast. Have you seen your property tax bill? Not yet because they don't want you to get it before the election on NO-vember 7th. You would definitely vote NO on the new single terminal airport!

IS CITY HALL ELECTIONEERING?

“We have been told City Hall has ordered the city employees to go onto twitter and encourage people to vote for the new single terminal." Please tell your followers to put KCI airport in the twitter search field and get in the conversation and rebut those people. Tell them you like KCI the way it is: We need reinforcements!
