KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY TOY TRAIN SPIN BUSTED!!! NO FEDERAL MANDATE FOR STREETCAR ELECTIONEERING!!!



Kansas City elections are inherently crooked but there's no federal requirement that they should be . . . At least according to this report:

KC Biz Journal: FTA: No federal requirement for door-to-door meetings

Deets . . .

No federal mandate requires Kansas City or its contractors to hold door-to-door meetings before part of the city votes on a proposed extension of the streetcar project, according to the Federal Transit Administration . . .

On Monday, Mayor Sly James said the work being performed by Kansas City's Parson & Associates LLC and Scott Hall & Associates will help the city fulfill a federal requirement to incorporate an environmental assessment into the expansion routes so the city is eligible to receive federal funding.

"If this assessment is not completed, then the city will have no opportunity to receive federal funding," James said in the statement.

TKC TRANSLATION . . . ONCE AGAIN MAYOR SLY IS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE FACTS IN SUPPORT OF THE KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR!!!

It's really a shame that Sly and the council let the urban futurist industrial complex, local engineering firms, big time lawyers, tired old "transit advocates", and the millenial kiddie corps stampede them so far out over their skis.
Even the initial Main Street line was never going to paid for by just the original TDD and millions have been scoured from every conceiveable account, including PIAC funds specifically designated for fixing streets and sidewalks in neighborhoods.
Now they're so far gone and so financially upside down that anything will go as they try to expand the taxing districts just to pay their current bills.
This fiasco will be a terrible financial sucking chest wound for KCMO for decades.
And all for a 3-5 year fad.
Too bad there weren't any adults involved.

According to @russkc, the burns & Mac study is a "campaign," so... he is contradicting the mayor and validating the ethics complaint. Rofl; that guy.

Mr. Tony,
Our mayor is a liar.

4:16 nailed it. The entire problem with big city governments is that you have a few true believers, politicians who love to cut ribbons and the media who always side with the insiders - all pushed along by those who will truly profit from the boondoggle.

You can impeach a Mayor by bringing up an accusation against him to the city council. Then the city council votes to impeach.

Would be fun to watch the ensuing chaos anyway. See just how loyal our elected representatives are to the people who put them in office.

People of KCMO are going to get burned big time if they don't stop this deal on August 5.

I think Sly's photo should be sent worldwide for the Esther Honig treatment.

Now, will somebody please inquire about the East Patrol project the City said was necessary to take residential land for. At least Kansas City Business Journal asked the question. Who else is brave enough to make inquiry.

Liar, liar.

Also check the water department and every other scheme this Mayor has undertaken.

Don't forget to report this to the Missouri Supreme Court. This Mayor shouldn't be practicing law, either. Let him retire like most other baby-boomers whose useful life as ended.

Does any resident know how much money has been spent to date on the 2 mile trolley? Surely someone at city hall is keeping a budget of expenditures.

Is this the same Scott Hall that works for the KC Chamber big 5 campaign?

SmartKC should work on reading comprehension...but that would make the lies and disinformation seem pretty unpalatable to the people they think they're convincing.

Also, buy a dictionary people and look up words like "electioneering" "unjust" "undue burden" and "democracy" and "representative democracy" and also "disenfranchise"

When you repeat the soundbytes and talking points of a lunatic, you sound like a lunatic.

Hey dipshit, the mayor is the one that lied and gave out disinformation. Get your story together before you challenge any more citizens groups.
