ALL ABOARD THE JACKSON COUNTY EXEC MIKE SANDERS VAPORWARE EXPRESS?!?!
Transit news involving a few drawings and cheap, abandoned track sent transit advocates and consultants into a tizzy over the (vague) possibility that this is anything but a campaign ploy from Jackson County Exec Mike Sanders . . .
Here's a transit presser of the Jackson County Ghost Train . . .
KMBC: Jackson County gets option to buy railroad right-of-way
Fox4KC: Agreement with Union Pacific brings county one step closer to commuter rail
Examiner: Railroad, county strike a deal for routes
Celebration over "the possibility of a plan" clues us in to the fact that the Jackson County exec simply wants to pad his resume while on track to chasing a higher office.
