Supreme Court Oral Arguments Set, And City Intimates Will Repeal Again If Light Rail Inititative Approved By Voters
The Missouri Supreme Court has set oral arguments for October 3, 2013 at 9:00 A.M. in Jefferson City involving the city's 2-year iron fisted ploy to obstruct a vote on a valid light rail initiative for no good reason.
Feeling like something may be crawling up their leg, City Councilman Ed Ford ( August 16, Kansas City Business Journal) said the city would place the initiative before voters if ordered to do so by the Supreme Court, and then intimated that he and the rest of the City Council would once again repeal the light rail initiative if it were approved by voters!!!!
Let me intimate something to Councilman Ed (repealing) Ford, Councilman Russ (repealing) Johnson, King (obstructionist) James, and the rest of the elected government:
If it comes to that, we will go to the streets with the following 3 petitions in hand:
Petition #1: Recall any council member that votes to repeal voter-approved initiative.
Petition #2: Amend city charter to coincide with Missouri State Constitution which states that only the voters themselves can repeal voter-approved initiatives.
Petition #3: Amend city charter...and its residency requirements pertaining to running for mayor or city council... to coincide with congressional residency requirement, which states candidates must only be a resident upon taking office.
Hint hint...King James
