VP of Cordish joining Trump admin

Postby StrangerThings » Mon Jan 09, 2017 3:49 pm

As a former Cordish employee, this is very cool! I got to know Reed Cordish and the Cordish family well several years ago and I have nothing but positive things to say about them and their family. I apologize if this isn't the right place to post, but it seemed relevant and I thought you all would be interested.

What? Like or hate Trump, it's pretty impressive that someone who is partially responsible for revitalizing downtown KC will be serving as assistant to the President. I'm guessing in a economic development role. He and his family were pivotal to KC's downtown and hopefully can apply that in some capacity with this new role.

*I didn't create this thread to become a political thing, as fans of or people actively involved in Development I thought it was relevant.

It certainly doesn't hurt that someone who builds urban towers has some level of input. Say what you will of the design, they're better than a parking lot.

Doesn't Donald himself build urban towers?

Not for years. He mainly does licensing deals these days.

He used to. Now he just slaps his name on things.

Joining the Trump administration is a pretty risky endeavor. It remains to be seen, but the label "formerly of the Trump administration" could be pretty limiting in the future. It's a label that makes both liberals and many old-school Republicans recoil a bit. Knowing what I know about how Trump operates in business and life, I'd certainly think twice before working with someone who treats business relationships within the same ethical boundaries (or lack thereof).

will this attract protesters to Cordish developments which are in large cities where Trump lost big, even in otherwise red states?

Not by anyone smart. We should take development money from most anyone wanting to spend it. I never understood the thought of not holding the Republican convention here because of political affiliation. It's going to take every red and blue dollar to turn the city around fully.

and in context of this if a republican administration wants to provide 80% matches for road diets with bike lanes that's great. let's take every dollar we can get.
