Letter to the Editor: No New KCI
October 21, 2017
I’m going to vote “no” on a new KCI airport.
KCI needs to be managed by the KCATA and possibly KC Port Authority. Both have the power to unify the KC region.
And please, let’s build the commuter rail to all three doors at KCI‘s present airport.
It was designed as an international airport to handle 20 airplanes for each terminal. Ask the KCI board to help build the commuter rail from KCI south to Cerner and North to St Joseph.
It’s time for the KC region to all ride together with our visitors and convention guests. We need to get around like the other major cities.
I hope in the future, Mayor James will serve on the KCATA board and act as a mediator or a peacemaker.
There are a lot of young people that will remember the mayor, and they someday will show their gratitude.
