We got a pro-KCI voter guide from Freedom, Inc on Friday. So CFRG didn’t sway them this time.

So in other words, someone's freedom of speech check helped a special interest group decide a project was especially interesting

Also on Twitter, Justin Meyer (Air Service Director at MCI) mentioned the CEO of Southwest will be in town on Friday. He wouldn't say why but I am thinking it could be related to the new terminal push.

I just got a call from Freedom Inc on my office phone encouraging me to vote for the new airport. Unfortunately I live 1 block outside of city limits so I can't vote. Which is annoying, because I was once against the idea of a new airport but have since changed my mind and am now for it.

Money to buy Freedom Inc's support has a history to goes back to its beginning. And Freedom isn't the only one.

I'm pretty sure the Southwest CEO will be in town for the KCADC annual meeting Friday. I don't know if he will be presenting or not, but my guess is he'll probably be endorsing the new airport. If you've ever been to the event, it's always a big deal and they always have impressive things up their sleeve. I was told the annual luncheon sold out and more than 1700 will be in attendance. Last year they live streamed it too, but I haven't heard if they will do that again.
