KCMO City Council passes unanimous resolution in support of the Tour of Missouri


Eric Rogers writes on

Governor Nixon has once again put the Tour of Missouri on the chopping block, despite the fact that it has a huge return on investment – more than a $30 million economic impact from a $1.5 million investment of state tax dollars.  With the state facing a $700 million budget deficit and local communities in great of the Tour’s infusion of tourism activity, it should be a no-brainer to make an investment with such a high ROI.

Fortunately the Kansas City, MO City Council recognizes the important impact of the Tour, and it just passed a unanimous resolution of support calling on the Governor not to kill the Tour.  The resolution was introduced by Councilmember Beth Gottstein and co-sponsored by Russ Johnson, Jan Marcason, Terry Riley, Bill Skaggs, John Sharp, Kathy Jolly, Cindy Circo, Melba Curls, Ed Ford, and Mayor Funkhouser.
