Welcome to Kansas City, Mr. President- as you have heard great things are taking place

Kansas Citians learned recently that President Barack Obama will deliver a speech about the economy at the Uptown Theater this Wednesday. The timing of the speech could not be better, with Kansas City Mayor Sly James sending a letter to the President just a few weeks ago.

(Mayor James’ letter to President Obama)

In the letter, the Mayor states “I believe that Kansas City, Missouri – and especially our business community as led by the chamber – can be a model for the rest of the country and I invite to visit and speak with some of our civic and business leaders about our efforts.”

While the President’s trip was not scheduled as a direct result of Mayor James’ letter, it is a serendipitous coincidence.  Kansas City is moving full speed ahead with its implementation of the City Energy Project.  Much of the progress of the initiative will lead to great economic gains, including the creation of local jobs to conduct energy audits, retrofit buildings and train building operators on how to run their buildings more efficiently.

Kansas Citians can be proud of all these efforts and perhaps the President will hear about them during his time here.

  1. Hello.

    I’m a reporter with Midwest Energy News, a news web site based in St. Paul, Minn. (Although I am actually here in KC.) I’d like to know who to talk to here about the status of this project.

    Can you please direct me to someone?

    Thanks.
