Obviously, even after all these years of reporting, Northeast News doesn't understand that insider dealing and juicy contracts are what KCMO government is all about.
Do they REALLY still think the folks in city hall have the public's interest in mind?

Why do you think Lawyers are on are on committee's at City Hall? To get projects done for their clients. Not anything left for the neighborhoods.

I pray daily I wake up one morning and check the news to find certain officials being perp walked out of city hall and subpoena's being delivered in bulk and that it all ends with the downtown toy train and that is the end of it.

Do we really want to make it easier for anybody that lives "there" to be able to hop the street car and get to...where...nevermind.

Some of those young med students at the Ostoepathic Medical School sure know how to get the kink on if you know where to look!

The people of KC need to implement a "take no prisoners" approach in this next election. Every elected crook and every bureaucratic ass hole who touched this train project need to be gone. People in this town have got to get their heads out of their asses and put a stop to this bullshit.

Independence Ave will be an awesome streetcar route. It's about time we reinvest in that part of town. Naysayers don't want it but are jealous of others that get it.

i cant wait till the day when I can attach my fixie to the front of the streetcar and go from my cold storage 450 sf2 loft to sabor centroamericano to buy 1 torta and a mexican coke.

this is going to create so many jobs!

The streetcar only has moderate support in Northeast. Most that I talk to are against it but I recognize that many will vote for it without considering the sales tax burden it will bring. 12.35% is too damn high.
