Governor Bob Holden insists the fact he was in St. Louis for its downtown development announcement earlier this year and missed Kansas City’s development announcement last week is not an indication of what he thinks of the Kansas City proposal. Kansas City Mayor Kay Barnes unveiled her plan, which includes a downtown arena, and calls for state funding. The Governor says he lkes what he has heard about the Mayor’s mix of public and private participation in the project, but he says he must see the proposal in its entirety before offering an opinion on it and before he can commit state funds.
