Jackson County Exec Mike Sanders Shares His Latest Vaporware Light Rail Scheme

KCUR indulges our favorite politico and his plan that will never happen and hasn't made ANY REAL PROGRESS since he talked about it last year: Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders says a deal is in place with the Union Pacific Railroad to extend the KATY Trail the 25 miles from its present terminus to the Truman Sports Complex.

Let's be real here . . . KC Southern is never going to let this happen . . . It's the second worst kind of political happy talk out there in order to win political points just for polite talk.

Let's make a bet . . .

TKC WILL SHUT THIS BLOG DOWN FOR A WEEK ON THE DAY THAT THE FIRST MIKE SANDERS JACKSON COUNTY LIGHT RAIL CHOO-CHOO LEAVES THE STATION!!!

I'm serious . . . This is back page politics while Mike Sanders either gets ready to take Congressman Cleaver's job or has to squeeze into the MO AG spot . . . This transit talk is simply something to further the illusion that they do something other than screw up the property taxes @ The Courthouse.

Developing . . .

Skippy can't pull anything off. He's an independence method head if he thinks he's got a shot at either

Mr. Tony,
Please understand that Sanders is free falling. He doesn't have any place to go. He is unelectable outside of his current seat. Poor thing is like that Ponack patron from yesterday... In a coma.

Oops! Hit the wrong key.
Mr. Tony could you please interview Mr. Sanders and ask him to produce supporting documents for his ghost train? Real signed papers?

Tony was careful to say "light rail" because the Sanders proposal is not based on light rail -- it uses existing rail facilities. So, there will never be a day when a Sanders light rail line comes to town, and Tony can call himself brilliant.

Skippy continues to bullshit the news media in this town, and they eat it up. What a bunch of worthless goo goo's.

Where is Calvin? Can't the magic man make this happen overnight? A bribe here. Some intimidation there.

Lisa Carter will make Calvin go bye bye.

Calvin already went Bye-Bye for two months and his twelve month compensation was not reduced a dime.

Don't mind me. At least, don't supervise me. I am just sitting here making sexual comments about coworkers and masturbating in my office looking at porn delivered to me on a county computer.

I can testify that the folks around City Hall are very happy that Calvin took his trip to Central America. Things were left undone and Sanders had to deal like a whore on the last day of the month. It was really pathetic but very profitable on this side of the street. LOL

I've got a better idea. Why don't you read the story?

The plan is to extend the Katy Trail first, the hike bike trail. Then down the road light rail can be introduced.

So here's my idea: why don't you shut down this blog for 26 weeks twice a year?

Sanders has been getting much better press now that Lisa Carter pushed Calvin aside. It is a huge improvement.

Tony, diesel electric trains on standard tracks are HEAVY RAIL not light rail. They (commuter rail) run at speeds with fewer stops. (I.E. suburban Chicago's METRA system, which is not to be confused with the heavy, third-railled EL in the city proper).

EXCELLENT POST!!!!!

TKC has got guts......boldly stating the facts of reality....and putting his blog on the line for the sake of truthiness!

A contract to buy is a big deal in and of itself. And, he was talking about trails going on them, with trains maybe someday. Cool.

READ THE FUCKING STORY, dimwits.

Poverty at the County said...

Sanders is doing all this as the Governor is cutting funds to local governments and the EDC is throwing taxpayer money to developers like it is a ticker tape parade? I know, he will cut employees and services to enrich his developer buddies. Sanders is not corrupt, he is playing the Game of Thrones the way it is played in an age of declining empire. Screw the taxpayers, screw the middle class to pay oligarchy its vig.

No train, no pain. Brice Stewart needs your help to beat this guy. Remember last year when Sanders wanted the County to pay for big pharma's research for nothing in return?

Brice can beat Sanders and put an end to his reign of terror but he cannot do it alone.
