Kansas City Toy Train Streetcar Receipts
Yesterday TKC was the FIRST to report deets of campaign finance notices from all of the interesting races and now THE KC BIZ JOURNAL offers more detailed accounting of the toy train contest . . .
Here are some of the more interesting receipts . . .
"$30,000 from Kansas City engineering firm Burns & McDonnell. The company made a $25,000 contribution in June and a $5,000 contribution in April. It is one of Kansas City’s streetcar contractors.

$5,000 from CHIPP Political Account. The address listed for the account — 1401 Hampton Ave. in St. Louis — matches the address of the Carpenters’ District Council of Greater St. Louis and Vicinity.
$25,000 from CHIPP Political Account, in addition to the $5,000 reported in the July quarterly filing.
$10,000 from Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. KCUMB is a private university whose main campus is on Independence Avenue — a potential streetcar expansion route.
On the outgoing side of the equation . . . It looks like Jason Parsons isn't the only guy getting paid . .
