Mayor pulls plug on 2016 election on KCI improvements

Kansas City Mayor Sly James said Tuesday that he’s pulling the plug on any 2016 election for a new, nearly $1 billion terminal at Kansas City International Airport. The airlines had asked for an August election, but recent polling showed less than 40 percent of voters were supportive.

KCI delay is disappointing but better not be fatal

Mayor Sly James tried to put the best face possible on disappointing news Tuesday. He said voters would not be asked this year to approve funding for a single terminal to replace the current setup at Kansas City International Airport. Now it needs to be considered in 2017.
