Bill Nigro is tired of the poor Kansas City Missouri leadership. Who isn’t?
To that end he’s backing Sly James for Mayor of Kansas City.
This in the hope that Sly will be more active in getting the city moving forward, cutting crime and becoming someone with a strong national presence. That’s something we’ve lacked for about 50 years.
The Beaumont Club in Westport will host this Sunday’s Party of The Decade. Nigro expects 1,000 people to come. Free beer, food and entertainment. The event starts at 6 PM. Many City Council hopefuls will be on hand, starting with Tracy Ward, the pink-haired maiden up for 6th district city council (at large). Ward plans to help the entertainment industry by doing away with many of the roadblocks to work and bring new business into KCMO.
One that she’ll eliminate is the stupid liquor and health department cards that cost bar and restaurant employees $61.
Kansas does not even have them – they’re meaningless, a rip off.
It costs employees more than $1 million a year for these "dumb cards."
And Sly James has already said he would get behind the rebuilding of mid town – the Plaza, Westport, Brookside and Waldo. Upgrade our revenue-producing areas and schools. Right now the race is neck and neck between James and Mike Burke.
Nigro promises a great time Sunday night with live music from Rock Fest band the Federation of Horsepower. There’ll be female bodybuilders on stage, a meet-and-greet with Sly at 8 PM. Tracy Ward on stage and other council hopefuls.
And who knows? I may bring a few strippers…
The midtown business alliance supports including John Crawford, Scott Wagner, Ed Ford and Russ Johnson to name a few. Darla Jay from KMBZ is the host. And yours truly will make an onstage trip to introduce the big show.
Sounds like a wild event…
Sunday, the Beaumont.,6PM til midnight; .food, fun, firewater – all free – see you there!
