Jim “Big Money” Rowland – $2 Million Price Tag for KC Pride

It’s awfully early for Jim Rowland to hit the panic button in his slipping mayoral campaign, but yesterday he panicked and accused Mayor Funkhouser of “hypocrisy” because Funkhouser expressed his happiness that the Chiefs made it to the playoffs. The accusation stems from Funkhouser’s refusal to support an annual $2 million dollar donation the city has made to the stadiums. (The donation was nice when the city had lots of money, but tough times have made the gift-giving unwise and irresponsible.)

Rowland, of course, was the backroom choice to run the Sports Authority, which runs the stadiums.

According to Rowland’s tortured logic, you need to pay $2 million to have pride in anything good that happens in KC. I suppose that he’s accustomed to such a system, since he himself had to pay Freedom, Inc. $50,000 to get them to support him. Everything has a price tag for Jim Rowland, and it’s pretty obvious our city can’t afford his open-checkbook approach to leadership.

    In addition to being the nation’s worst big town mayor in general, Funk En Stein and Mrs. Mayor were warned early and often ’bout the planned ‘money toss’ by Consolidated School District One and Mrs Mims.

    With Funk’s assistance, over a quarter of a million tax payer dollars were used to tear down the quite suitable existing perimeter barrier and erect a totally unneeded artsy fartsy art fence around Ruskin High School.

    I mean, ya might as well thrown the coins and currency on to whizzing on going traffic on Blue Ridge Extention. Ruskin came with in one board vote of shutting down as a prep school.

    This is not common sense. This is a script for a Hollywood mindless comedy. Ruskin, Funk, Mrs. Mayor, and the KCK YWCA. One joke after another.
