Folks are legitimately worried about the convenience aspect of KCI going away with the proposed switch to a single terminal.The last few times I’ve flown out of KCI, I’ve found myself standing in a long, long line heading into the security checkpoint and asked myself: “What’s so convenient about this?
I came on board when it was made clear no tax dollars will be involved--the only time you’ll pay for this is when you buy your airline tickets.
The importance of KCI to the economy and quality of life in Platte County cannot be overstated.
Drive up and down the I-29 corridor and take a gander at all the hotels, restaurants, manufacturing plants, etc.
and ask yourself if those businesses would be there if not for KCI.
Those of us who live in Platte County but not within the city limits of Kansas City are simply spectators in this election.
