TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! MISSOURI AMENDMENT 4 THREATENS TO DERAIL KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR EXTENSION TAX SCHEME!!!
Once again Missouri law could thwart Kansas City politicos and their despicable attempt to avoid a citywide vote on the streetcar extension.
To wit . . .
CRITICS OF THE TOY TRAIN CELEBRATE MISSOURI AMENDMENT 4 THAT COULD THROW LOCAL SALES TAX INCREASE SCHEMES LIKE THE KANSAS CITY STREETCAR EXTENSION OFF TRACK!!!
Here's the word . . .
"Voters will have a chance to derail streetcar expansion plans in the November 8th General Election. The trolley folks’ plan is to increase sales and real estate taxes to pay for expansion. If constitutional amendment 4 passes, they will have a hard time coming up with the $$$."
What we're really talking bout here is precedent for another court fight that awaits the toy train streetcar extension because arrogant, deceitful and conniving streetcar supporters refuse to even attempt to create community consensus and would rather railroad Kansas City voters with ANOTHER crooked election.
Thankfully, it seems that once again the local money train for developers, consultants, lawyers and politicos has run into a Missouri road block in a state where anti-tax efforts usually garner a welcomed reception.
