KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Mayor Sly James hardly blinked an eye when he was interrupted by a shouting man on stage during his State of the City speech Tuesday, and continued focusing on the message he wanted citizens to hear, about his tenure and goals for Kansas City.
He spoke about efficiency, employment, education and enforcement, and where he sees Kansas City going during the next 12 months.
Mayor James identified the items on his wish-list, including public streetcars and more money-generating events like the upcoming NCAA tournament at the Sprint Center.
He told the public his plans to use $700 million that voters approved in November to install new sewers, improve roads and add streetcars.
