TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! FEAR KANSAS CITY BROOKSIDE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR EXTENSION CONSPIRACY!!!
Given that another rigged Kansas City toy train election designed by local "leaders" has been proposed despite a public vote AGAINST the streetcar extension less than two years ago . . .
Right now, because just about everybody in Kansas City is angry to be back at work, let's examine some FIRST PERSON COMMUNITY JOURNALISM FROM OUR TKC BLOG COMMUNITY observing an emerging roadside conflict right out in the open near the Plaza.
To wit . . .
OUR KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY FEARS CITY HALL CORRUPTION AMID ANOTHER RIGGED STREETCAR ELECTION GIVEN PREEMPTIVE STREET CONSTRUCTION TO ACCOMMODATE THE TOY TRAIN!!!
It might seemed far fetched but this comes from the same local government body and crew of corrupt consultants who are attempting to spend nearly a quarter of a billion dollars with only a vote of less than 500 people.
Here's the word . . .
"The city just spent months widening Brookside Boulevard at 51st and Brookside, the planned turnaround for the streetcar. They're claiming it was for the Whole Foods Store but that's B.S. They widened the west side of the street and the grocery store is on the east side of Brookside. They already think the streetcar to UMKC is a done deal."
Community confirmation . . .
"We assumed it was widened to add a left turn lane on the southbound side. Yet they finished the widening, paved Brookside and striped the road. No turn lane. This whole thing could already be a done deal no matter if they have a vote by ballot or mail in . . . "
What's always sickening about this deal is that a cadre JoCo talkers and biz people are ready to burden KCMO with more taxes, construction blight and empty promises in order to push this scheme through while local streetcar advocates are only willing to preach to the choir and take softball interviews rather than engage in any real community debate . . . Just get mad at TKC in the comments and then read the blog throughout the day anyhoo . . .
We need coffee . . .
You decide . . .
