SURPRISE!!! MAYOR SLY AND CITY COUNCIL HATE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR PART DEUX!!!
The cheerleaders of a controversial new plan to expand the Downtown Kansas City streetcar aren't finding any support at City Hall.
To wit . . .
TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! ONCE AGAIN TOY TRAIN SUPPORTERS WERE SHUT DOWN AT CITY HALL WHEN EXPLAINING THEIR STREETCAR EXPANSION PLANS!!!
Quick run down of the opposition and more behind the scenes reporting than anybody else in KC is providing . . .
4th District At-Large Council Lady Katy Shields Seyz It's Too Soon To Push Streetcar Part Deux
It's her district and once again Council Lady Shields calls for more time to study the current streetcar operation beyond all of the hype from Twitter. It's a good call considering everyone knows those ridership numbers are fake.
Mayor Sly Isn't Convinced . . .
This one is surprising . . . While Mayor Sly would never upset his strongest supporters . . . His lack of enthusiasm is a clear sign that toy train cheerleaders are off track.
Northland Politicos Tired Of Being Ignored
Council Dude Fowler and Council Lady Teresa Loar are already on record with their opposition but as the Northland expands it seems that these new reps are willing to fight for resources.
More to the point . . .
ANOTHER RIGGED TDD VOTE WOULD BE A DISASTER FOR ANY POLITICO ON KANSAS CITY AND CITY HALL KNOWS AS MUCH!!!
Strangely enough . . . Streetcar expansion isn't a horrible idea but this sneaky scheme hatched by consultants and cheerleaders CLEARLY didn't include politicos or other insiders and the effort to keep the gravy train going grows increasingly unlikely.
Also . . . The upcoming General Obligation bond vote is the sole focus of politicos at City Hall and anything that would risk it is getting pushed aside . . . If the consultant creeps in charge of the streetcar expansion effort knew as much . . . They would've planned their pipe dream a bit better.
