TKC NOTE: Tonight we have an IMPORTANT COMPARE AND CONTRAST statement sent our way from a KICK-ASS TKC READER who has a talent for putting things in perspective.
Take a look . . .
FACT: JUST LIKE MANY PEOPLE COMPLAIN ABOUT CLAY CHASTAIN'S CITY WIDE VOTER APPROVED LIGHT RAIL IDEA . . . THE FUNDING MECHANISM FOR MAYOR SLY'S BIG PLANS HAS ALWAYS BEEN MOSTLY UNDEFINED!!!
This statement lays out the deets . . .Or lack thereof . . .
Compare And Contrast Mayor Sly's Schemes Vs. Clay Chastain Light Rail Plans
"Isn't it ironic the city council chose to ignore the voters desire to move forward on Clay Chastain's voter approved light rail plan several years ago because they felt the issue failed to meet fiscal obligations, yet a couple of weeks ago at UMKC Law School the mayor stated the Choo Choo Train expansion currently being pushed forward was over $35M short of projected funding yet it needed to move forward because it would be good for the city, especially the east side.
This is the same politician who supported the $1.2B "boondoggle" at KCI. Whats next for this moron, pledging $150M of our tax dollars to build a convention hotel so we can attract conventioneers and visitors to utilize our $1.2B unnecessary terminal and ride around our east side on an $800M Choo Choo Train."
