Perhaps Jason White, you protest too much about the Bass Pro complex. Maybe you should ask your wife’s uncle (Byron Constance), J.R. Stewart, John Evans and Dr. David Moore (brother-in-law of Bass Pro owner) why they have not lived up to their end of the agreement. Why didn’t these developers turn the project over to a national development company like “RED” to develop several years ago when they discovered they were unable to fulfill the commitment.

Perhaps Jason White, you protest too much about the Bass Pro complex. Maybe you should ask your wife’s uncle (Byron Constance), J.R. Stewart, John Evans and Dr. David Moore (brother-in-law of Bass Pro owner) why they have not lived up to their end of the agreement. Why didn’t these developers turn the project over to a national development company like “RED” to develop several years ago when they discovered they were unable to fulfill the commitment.

No matter how naive Mr. Constance appeared in his interview with The Examiner, he had to know that they were not living up to their agreement. Mr. Constance is an attorney, and he should have known they were liable for the payment when they didn’t fulfill their obligation. Ask your wife’s uncle and his partners when they are going to pay this bill. Why don’t they live up their agreement and quit making all of the Independence citizens pay their bill. As citizens, we should hold their feet to the fire, and you should also.

Mr. White, did you possibly have a conflict of interest when you voted for this? Evidently, your homework wasn’t perfect either, or were you looking out for the uncle’s interest? Were you forthcoming and up front with the information in a council meeting that one of the principals in this was your wife’s uncle, or did you let that slide right under the radar? You shouldn’t throw rocks when you live in a glass house!
