Activist Clay Chastain Warns OF Kansas City Transit State Of Emergency
TKC NOTE: The latest from Kansas City Transit Activist Clay Chastain once again laments trouble with light rail ballot language . . .
The light rail initiative is in a state of emergency.
In an arrogant breach of faith with voters, Mayor James and the City Council voted last Thursday (8 to 1) to place vague unfair light rail ballot language before voters that does not even include the words light rail nor does it tell voters what the initiative taxes are intended for.
The City must reverse course this Thursday and correct that corrupted language... especially given the fact Mayor James outright lied to the City Council telling them (before the vote) that my attorney and I were unwilling to negotiate a reasonable compromise.
Aside: We have the emails between attorneys to prove it was the City's own Law Department that said the City was not interested in negotiating anything!!!!
There will be political consequences for the corruption of the light rail ballot language, and legal consequences for Mayor James' false statements meant to malign my attorney and me.
