TKC EXCLUSIVE MUST READ!!! TRANSIT ACTIVIST CHASTAIN: LIGHT RAIL DESIGNED TO MAKE KANSAS CITY GREAT AGAIN!!!
We're working on a LOT of stuff behind the scenes but for right now we think Kansas City's top transit activist deserves HIS SAY on his petition victory today . . .
Clay Chastain: Light rail initiative approved to go on the November ballot
Today, the Council's Finance Committee unanimously agreed to place the people's valid light rail initiative on the upcoming November presidential ballot.
As one who has often criticized Kansas City's government in the past, today I praise our newly elected city council for its action in behalf of honest, open and representative government.
The petition proposes an innovative citywide light rail system (rapid, zero-emission trains operating in their own right-of-way separated from traffic) connecting the northland (KCI) to the southland (Cerner at Bannister), the westside (Union Station) to the eastside (Jackson County Sports Complex), and all of it designed to make Kansas City great again.
So if you are for Kansas City, you will want to cast your vote (November 8, 2016) for a long overdue public transportation plan that promises the people a long overdue... more green, prosperous and transit-oriented city.
