Sedgwick County: please don’t ratify Wichita’s disrespect of citizens

I'm here today to ask this commission to not approve the expansion of the Center City South Redevelopment District, commonly known as the downtown Wichita arena TIF district.

Google maps tells me that the driving time from one city's downtown to the other is two hours and 30 minutes. The drive to a city's airport, arriving way early to make sure you get through security, combined with the flight time and the drive from the other city's airport to wherever your destination is -- this would take much more time than that. And what do you do for ground transportation? Renting a car takes time, too.
