Kansas City’s Team

It’s not about politics, I promise.  Until fairly recently, I volunteered in politics.   My involvement waxed and then waned over the years.  Now I find the waxing cycle has begun again, but in a whole new way. 

I love a challenge and this is a fun one!  My new campaign? Bring the Republican National Convention to Kansas City in 2016.  Actually, it’s more of an economic campaign than a political one.  Business people, regardless of political affiliation, will benefit from the selection of Kansas City as the site for the RNC.  If business people benefit, so will the rest of the community.  Hello, trickle down economics.  In all things, always follow the money.

The Republican National Convention is dwarfed in economic impact only by the Olympics.  It’s estimated to bring over 250 million dollars to the community.   We expect 50,000 delegates and guests.  In 2008, delegates spent an average of $1600 each.  Combined with security, transportation, accommodations and convention sites, the economic impact for Kansas City is staggering!  The effects of positioning Kansas City as “America’s most entrepreneurial city” will have a positive impact long after the last piece of confetti is swept from the Sprint Center floor.

It might be “politics” but for the first time, it doesn’t matter what side you’re on or if you are even on a side.  It doesn’t matter if you live on the Kansas side or the Missouri side.  If you are a R or a D or a L or an I.  If you call, Kansas City home, YOU are on my team.  And we are a winning team!
