Kansas City Transit Activist Clay Chastain confronts Mayor Sly and the entire City Council with his latest POWER MOVE in his ongoing quest for light rail.
Accordingly . . .
CLAY CHASTAIN PLANS TO START A RECALL EFFORT AGAINST MAYOR SLY AND COUNCIL OVER "BAD FAITH" LIGHT RAIL BALLOT LANGUAGE!!!
What's important to note here is that some of the Council members are extremely vulnerable to recall given low voter turnout numbers. AND Clay Chastain has proven time and time again that he's willing to go out and do the footwork when it comes to collecting citizen imitative petition signatures.
Here's the FIRST LOOK at his argument . . .
From the desk of Clay Chastain . . .
The following is an affidavit (to be filed with the City Clerk) to recall from elected office the entire City Council, including Mayor Sly James, for numerous acts of bad faith and improper performance regarding a valid constitutional light rail initiative from the people:
I Clay Chastain (qualified voter of Kansas City, Missouri and part-time resident of Kansas City, Missouri, and according to the instructions outlined in the City's Charter for obtaining recall petitions from the City Clerk) hereby declare to the City Clerk my request for petitions to recall Mayor Sly James and all 12 members of the City Council for the following specific reasons that I deem constitute legally unjustified acts of bad faith and improper performance harmful to the public trust:
#1. The City's failure to place before voters, as mandated in the City's Charter, a valid constitutional light rail initiative submitted to the City from the people;
#2. The City's failure to follow a court ruling ordering the City to place said light rail initiative on the November 4, 2014 City Ballot;
#3. The City's failure to place on the November 4, 2014 ballot fairly worded light rail initiative ballot language that reflects the entire intent of said initiative signed in behalf of by thousands of Kansas City voters.
