TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY 3RD DISTRICT OUTRAGE OF COUNCIL DUDE JERMAINE REED'S PRICEY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR SUPPORT!!!



As usual, the urban core has been excluded from most discussions on recent Kansas City infrastructure and transit developments.

However, the latest word from AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS reveals a lively streetcar debate to the east of Brookside.

Accordingly . . .

KANSAS CITY 3RD DISTRICTS VOTERS RAGE AGAINST COUNCILMAN JERMAINE REED OVER HIS EXPENSIVE SUPPORT OF THE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR!!!



How much is the Councilman costing the 3rd District with his streetcar support? 

Kansas City Insiders have an exact total:

OVER THE PAST 3 YEARS COUNCILMAN JERMAINE REED HAS ALLOCATED $810K OF 3RD DISTRICT PIAC FUNDS FOR THE STUDY OF THE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR!!!

For those who don't know . . . Public Improvements Advisory Committee (PIAC)

Here's the word from Kansas City East Side Insiders already looking for an opponent to oust Councilman Reed.

"He has been ineffective and incompetent. The 3rd District desperately needed that money for infrastructure improvement and repair. Everything from streetlights to water mains could have been benefited from those funds. Meanwhile, the reality is that it's very unlikely the streetcar is going to turn east in the near future."

Even more to the point . . .

"Why should the 3rd District pay for improvements in Downtown and Brookside? Councilman Reed has been negligent in his allocation of these funds and that's just one of many reasons that he doesn't deserve a 2nd term."

To be fair, if streetcar advocates were serious about their promises for economic development they would steer the toy train toward the East Side . . . 18th and Vine in particular is the best location for a toy train stop given that the Linwood route really isn't going to do any good.

Sadly . . . The reality is that the streetcar is a mostly white effort supported predominately by hipster consultants . . . Even the middle-class residents of Brookside now stand against Phase II.

Even worse . . .

It seems that Kansas City Toy Train Streetcar hype is coming to a halt after Councilman Reed has been taken along for a ride and given up almost a million dollars worth of 3rd District funds.

Developing . . .

If every incompetent and ineffective person were booted out of city hall the place would be an echo chamber.
And at the end of the day, there won't be anywhere near enoubh money generated in the first TDD for the Main Street streetcar and theft from other accounts will continue.
The tipping point was reached months ago.
All aboard.

The follow up question is:

How much did the other districts contribute to the study?

do you really believe that this mildly retarded barely functional human racist is "helping" the hip white people of KC by supporting this travesty?
you need to plant this trash right where it belongs, in the mayor and city councils lap no where else. blaming the whites like they would like to refocus it on is simply not true .. I am not saying because I'm white .. I'm not but I have sat at tables with this chimp in a diaper at functions and listened to him throw "hissy fits" because of where his seat was and who he was seated with. Kansas City will be a toilet as long as we continue to hope that the bulb will go off someday for these people .. it wont, I am pleading with you .. vote these people out of office, even if you think they are trying, its simply not enough, we have to come together and get rid of each and everyone of these political welfare recipients and start over with people who will act in their own constituents best interest

Nothing. The other districts had Council members who were too smart to fall for this stupid crap. They all said no out of PIAC money.

The problem Tony does not understand is that his constant, relentless griping about trains has not inspired an immunity by the advocates.

Effective advocacy understands that complaining should be limited and strategic. Tony's endless sniveling has the elegance if blunt force trauma. This results in people steeling against the barrage.

All the world, including Dennis Rodman, knows Tony is against the train and the new airport. If TKC had a sense of self, he would be a bit more circumspect about the NEW issues.

So every district kicked in $100,000 except the 3rd which kicked in over $800,000???

The 3rd account is being hit up for 800k a year, for the next 3 years, Reed is a retard.

Reed isn't remotely qualified to hold office. He is embarrassingly incompetent. Carol Coe in a suit.

Seems like a whole lot of money.

That's how it has to be when you're on Patsy's Payroll.

I have heard that the 3rd district usually gets a small portion of what should be its fair share for years. But if this is true, something needs to happen about this. Jermaine, please explain your self.

The reason we don't have sidewalks East of Troost is because Reed's PIAC appointee is Ollie Gates daughter and she makes sure all the money is used on Gates projects. Look it up.

With all these great decisions and spending plans put together by our elected representatives, just imagine how well local control of the police department would be.
There's really no "local control" of much of anything at city hall. Just an endless shoveling of taxpayer money out the door for insiders, grifters, friends, and glamour projects.
$800 grand a year for three years that won't be spent on streets and sidewalks in a part of town that really needs the work so the money can be spent on streetcar studies!
The original Main Street line will bankrupt the city long before the "expansions" take place.
And all the consultants, contractors, engineers, attorneys, PR flacks, and other hangers-on will be long gone with the money.
All aboard.

This is ridiculous Jermaine. You should resign over this. How dare you say that you're for the district when you give our funds away.

With MLK Village, Citadel Plaza, 18th and Vine, Tracy Avenue houses, and all the rest, would anyone like to guess how much money has simply disappeared into thin air east of Troost?
It's always fun to hear the old "our fair share" routine to be sure that KCMO isn't going to ever do anything other than what's been done before.
And the same small number of people benefit.
And the neighborhoods continue to spiral down.
And the taxpayers take it in the shorts.
Anybody for some change?

Hmm...sounds like Gwen or her brother saying this b.s. using PIAC money for the streetcar was Sly and Russ' great idea. Reed is no friend to either of them.

3rd said...

That may be true that it was there idea but the 3rd district councilman had to give his approval to go along with them.

Your nutz if you think BKS is against the streetcar. 6 old NIMBY ladies isn't a majority here. We've voted for every light rail proposal ever, and we'll vote for this one, no matter what Sue Burke, 3 crazy ladies who are scared of train tracks but not car, and the TKC echo chamber think.

Me Beleives Clinton Adams is the tipster said...

And yet

1. CXinXon AXaXs did NOT complain one bit when there was a RECALL attempt to get Reed's lame-brain out of office.

2. CXinXon AXaXs did NOT complain one bit when PIAC funds were diverted and unnecessarily invested in the GREEN IMPACT ZONE.

Rage on Mr. Adams.

Agree that Reed has no business representing anybody for any reason. He needs to get his shit together but the incompetence of this Councilman has been well documented.

Hot 103 Jamz will save Jermaine Reed. We are willing to air complete and total bs about his ability that's why we promote him. Keep the jungle bird in your district; not ours.

The BS is mighty deep. All this is the white developers putting their hands in our pockets through the sales tax. Thanks that Governer Nixon told the truth and is against the sales taxes.
