Parkville adds name to list of cities wooing RNC

The Parkville Board of Aldermen took a stand with many other Kansas City metro area municipalities to attempt to lure the 2016 Republican National Convention (RNC) to Kansas City in 2016.At the regular meeting Tuesday evening, the Board authorized Mayor Jim Brooks to sign a letter of support, which will also be signed by representatives of the Parkville Economic Development Council, Parkville Main Street Association and Parkville Area Chamber of Commerce. “We’re not necessarily taking a political side on this,” Brooks said. “Any political convention would be great for Kansas City and the area economy.”
