TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! FINANCIAL FACT CHECK!!! MAYOR SLY VS. CLAY CHASTAIN AMID KANSAS CITY FUNDING QUESTIONS!!!



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."

Simple solution: Put the Mayor's plan up to a city wide vote. If Clay did it, so should the mayor.

The fact is that simeone should spend as little as a million dollars, construct a woodpile, and lead Sly and his Councilfriends into oblivion :( If one takes the time to add up all these projects, looks at the skyrocketing tax and sales tax numbers, a rational person might conclude that Kansas City is headed to a century of ruin as the citizens will we forced to pay for all these follies. This is getting very very bad. Its time for Jim Nutter Sr. to step in and put a stop to this!!!!!! Calling in Fatso Nutter, calling on Fatso Nutter... Save us from these feckless baboons and irresponsible politicos!!!!!!!!!!!'

Sly is pretty sly. He's right that the east side should be targeted for a one cent sales tax (and property tax increases) to fund the "frou-frou route" from downtown to the plaza and UMKC. It's very important that the more affluent white areas of the city be exempted (sic, southwest and north kc). Why not tax the poorest area of the city for this?

don't mind saying it. I'll take clay over sly any day. at least clay tries to get signitures and voters involved.

If these streetcar fanatics are depending on votes from the east side to carry Phase II of this fiasco, wshere is the money coming from and who is it going to to get out the vote?
Freedom?
Urban Summit?
That's how the old things work and this won't be any exception.
But who's going to throw in the cash?

OH Yeah we need another Urban Summit.

We need to gather up all the cons, grifters, con artists, buck dancers, minstrels and shines and all the groups with creative names...Giv Yursel Real Luv, Ma Brudders Keepers, AimFoDaMoney, Ad hoc for a buck, Stop da Violence, and all the other vigil marchettes that accomplish NOTHING.

Don't forget to invite the crime fighter in a Zoot Suit.

Yep an Urban Summit will straighten all the kinks outta KC and stop the senseless random acts of negros killin other negros will all da negros watch and know who the criminal is while they keep their mouths shut.

But hey we need another Urban Summit.

What unremitting nonsense that drives KC.

More civility in the discussion please. Calling the mayor a moron and publishing the comment is over the top. Disagree if you choose but nix the name calling.
