The other day I posted some musings about an analysis of TIF projects in Kansas City. The city had just released a pretty damning document detailing how the projects in question had fallen hundreds of millions of dollars short of revenue projections.
How and why, exactly, did that report get released?
Impact? Hard to say. But yesterday, Kansas City voters electer former auditor Mark Funkhouser to be their mayor. (Note that the link above takes you to his blog.) I discussed Funkhouser here. Note that he recently said that Kansas City's plan to build a hockey arena "stinks."
Seems like an interesting fellow. Too bad he can't run here. We could use the competition.
