TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY POWER BROKERS PLOT REVENGE AFTER TOY TRAIN STREETCAR DEFEAT!!! KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS REVEAL NEW CIVIC ELITE AGENDA AND PRIORITIES!!!
This week Kansas City voters SMACKED DOWN Mayor Sly, The City Council and most of their corporate and civic elite patrons who really control this town's agenda.
However . . .
KANSAS CITY MAYOR, COUNCIL AND THE CITY'S TOP CORPORATE AND CIVIC ELITE POWER BROKERS ARE ALREADY WORKING TO PLOT THEIR REVENGE ON THE VOTING PUBLIC WITH A NEW AGENDA!!!
Because the chubby white women @ Global Prairie think this town's least favorite blogger is kinda cute . . . Also, because this stuff is easy to find for anybody who has even a modicum of knowledge about City Hall . . .
RIGHT NOW TKC TIPSTERS REVEAL THE NEW PRIORITIES OF MAYOR, COUNCIL AND KANSAS CITY'S RULING CLASS AFTER THE TOY TRAIN WAS DEFEATED!!!
THE NEW KANSAS CITY MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR AIRPORT RAM THROUGH IS NOW AT THE TOP OF THE LIST FOR THE LOCAL RULING CLASS!!!
The fight for a new KCI isn't even close to finished . . . This is where Mayor and Council dude Russ Johnson will be directing most of their energy in the immediate future . . .
Check out this unsigned EMERGENCY ordinance . . .
#140581: Authorizing a $3,000,000 increase to the contingency for the Terminal Development Planning project at the KCI Airport; and recognizing this ordinance as having an accelerated effective date.
This upcoming fight should be fun but it's risky for everybody and the scale of the project could push Kansas City that much closer to bankruptcy.
BRIEF TKC ASIDE: Mayor Sly and City Council really did KCMO a disservice with a recent charter change that loosened up their transparency requirements on city ordinances. Nowadays we notice A LOT more unsigned legislation and misleading language.
Next up . . .
PREPARE FOR THE ANOTHER CONTENTIOUS FIGHT OVER THE KANSAS CITY E-TAX!!!
Billionaire philanthropist Rex Sinquefield inadvertently gave every Kansas City political consultant a gift when he challenged the e-tax and put it up for a constant re-vote. It's "TOO BIG TO FAIL" and local leaders will now supply this town's consulting class with a heck of a lot of money to make sure there's no chance of it losing. Last time around the E-Tax passed by a margin of 78 percent vs. 22 percent of voters.
Speaking of zombies . . .
OF COURSE KCMO ISN'T FINISHED WITH THE STREETCAR TOY TRAIN, CITY HALL IS STILL STEALING MONEY FROM THE BUS TO FUND IT!!!
Once again here's the hipster locomotive taking desperately needed cash and resources away from the far more effective Kansas City bus service . . .
EMERGENCY Ordinance #140581 - Authorizing a Cooperative Agreement for approximately $1,142,000.00 with the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) and the Kansas City Streetcar Authority for the use of the KCATA’s Transit Radio System for the Downtown Streetcar Transit System; and recognizing this ordinance as having an accelerated effective date.
Translation . . . The priorities of Kansas City's Mayor, Council and corporate rulers are still screwed up even after the public SMACKDOWN from voters. KCMO is still on track to waste money on the toy train despite more pressing problems . . .
