Morning Message From Transit Activist Clay Chastain
Kansas City, Missouri government's blatant self-serving hypocrisy was on full display at the final court hearing over whether their proposed expanded streetcar plan is constitutional, reasonable, and should be allowed to be placed before the voters in August:
A local news station aired a report and the following statement:
"Attorneys for the city said it SHOULD BE UP TO THE VOTERS TO DECIDE if the special assessment (streetcar taxing district) is reasonable."
Keep in mind this is the same government and its attorneys that have been saying for three years in 4 court rooms, that the voters should not be allowed to decide whether a light rail initiative... signed by 4,000 Kansas City, Missouri registered voters... is "reasonable!"
