MAYOR SLY'S KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR ATTACK AGAINST PO'FOLK!!!
Here's yet another sign that Mayor Sly has long forgotten about his days on Montgall despite his rhetoric . . . Also, imagining Mayor Sly in Robin Hood tights makes me giggle . . .
Kansas City Streetcar Robs Poor to Pay … Rich?
"Some of the poorest parts of Kansas City — those already in dire need of transportation and infrastructure improvements — will be paying more in taxes so that the already developed parts of Kansas City can get new sidewalks, landscaping, streetcars, and the increased property values that go with it. Those outside the TDD will also pay more through sales tax and the special assessment levied on government property, and by however the city decides to close the $30 million to $50 million gap in financing.
Seriously, that is Kansas City Mayor Sly James’ plan.
To make matters worse, non-profit organizations along the route will pay a special assessment that will impact their ability to serve those same communities in need."
Sadly, Mayor Sly is virtually unchallenged by voters from the East side . . . At the very worst, The East side merely won't show up to vote for a Mayor who clearly cares more about developers and local corporations than the vast majority of his broke-ass constituents in the urban core.
