TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! FRIENDS OF KCI AND SANTA DELIVER PETITIONS TO STOP THE SINGLE-TERMINAL AIRPORT PROJECT!!!



It seems that it's the time of season for Kansas City residents and voters to send an important message to City Hall.

To wit . . .



CHECK OUT THE FRIENDS OF KCI DELIVERING THEIR PETITION TO STOP THE DESTRUCTION OF THE AIRPORT IN FAVOR OF A MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR PROJECT!!!

These good tidings might have caught more than a few politicos off guard . . .



Check the statement . . .

"Today, Citizens for Responsible Government / FRIENDS OF KCI .. Turned in their petitions to get the $1.5 Billion Airport Plan brought to the voters of KCMO before any construction can start. The petition ( Resolution) should be on the April 8, 2014 ballot. The petitions were presented to the City Clerk’s office this afternoon in a beautifully wrapped Christmas present: presented by FRIENDS OF KCI and Santa Clause on behalf of the VOTERS of Kansas City, MO.! Part of our goal as Citizens for Responsible Government / FRIENDS OF KCI, was to get the citizens engaged in the process of City Government. The Research Tax got the ball rolling and now with several thousand petitions, Friends of KCI continues the momentum. We need to put a stop to frivolous spending."

This created a bit of a stir @ City Hall today . . .



Sadly, this might not be exactly what politicos like Council Dude Russ Johnson wanted for X-mas but it's better than a lump of coal . . .

More in a bit . . .

Good for them. Probably one of the most underrated petition efforts since Clay Chastain won the street car voter.

Hope the Mayor and Council get the message. Why waste more than a billion dollars when we can make improvements to the existing airport for far less.

Councilman Russ Johnson, who chairs the council committee that has been reviewing airport plans, declined comment Tuesday on the initiative petition effort.

It ultimately will be up to the City Council to decide whether to place the measure on a citywide ballot.

And if they don't? And say fuck you Joe Blows that should be interesting.

The city will first refuse to put this on the ballot without the proponents going to court. Then the city will spend hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to defeat it at the polls.

Yep 4:20 got to make sure Polsinelli and the boyz get a cut that action.

How can we screw Joe Blow? Let us count the ways.

Still think CKMO is a democracy? Think again.

The recent election in Cincinnati should be a reminder to local politicos that you ignore the voters at your own peril.

Seems like the dark underbelly and underworld of CK Leadership is finally coming to the light.

So if I am reading the tea leaves correctly, KCI is looking at either a $700MM refurbishment similar to the last one, or a $1.2B new single terminal. In either case, the city is required by state law to get voter approval for the bonds. So what exactly is the purpose of this petition when it is asking for exactly what the city is required to do?

I wonder if the petitioners tried to hit on women the way Clay did.

Santa shows up and all he has are petitions?
Sly and Russ were hoping for a big bag full of cold hard streetcar cash.
And now that both the airport terminal and streetcar projects have gotten down to the boring "how do we actually pull these things off and pay for them" phase, let's move on to the new taxpayer-funded 1000 room downtown hotel.
CK is on the move!

6:01 There are ways to finance and pull this off without the voters. Special bonds, alternative financing, etc.
