TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! TRANSIT ACTIVIST CLAY CHASTAIN REAX TO KANSAS CITY LIGHT RAIL BALLOT LANGUAGE: DICTATORIAL GOVERNMENT MANIPULATES!!!
Kansas City light rail language was released today . . .
Even better . . .
HERE'S FIRST WORD FROM CLAY CHASTAIN AND HIS OUTRAGE OVER THE BALLOT LANGUAGE FROM KANSAS CITY!!!
Like it or not, this could mean another court case facing Kansas City . . .
Clay Chastain Seyz . . .
Today, Kansas City's government filed in court proposed light rail initiative ballot language that not only does not honor the intent of the light rail initiative signed by 5,000 citizens or suggest a specific transportation use for the taxes raised, but also does not even include the words light rail.
Missouri case law says, "Initiatives shall be liberally construed to effectuate their purpose."
Mayor James and the City Council have narrowly construed the light rail initiative in attempt to kill its purpose.
Kansas City's self-serving government has, yet again, acted in bad faith in deserting the public interest in favor of its own.
The City's manipulation of the American Democratic election process in order to protect its own interests (expansion of the City's 2.2 mile streetcar line) is government gone mad with power.
We will not back down to this dictatorial government.
