TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY TAX FIGHTERS SUE EVERYBODY TO STOP THE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR EXTENSION!!!



And we start this week with a bang and another court fight amid a tragic Kansas City development legacy.

Checkit:

KANSAS CITY TAX FIGHTERS LAUNCH AN EPIC COURT BATTLE AGAINST THE TOY TRAIN PART DEUX, POLITICOS AND STREETCAR CONSPIRATORS!!!

FIRST and before anybody else, here's the word . . .

KCMO Streetcar opponents sue The State of Missouri, The Secretary of State and all fifty of the Streetcar Petition Sponsors...



This week in Cole County, MO., several KCMO “Voters” sued the State of Missouri, The Secretary of State, and all fifty of the streetcar extension petition sponsors. The suit alleges the TDD voting process "imposes onerous procedural requirements which handicap the exercise of their (Voters) franchise to vote.” The suite is filed in Cole County, MO because that is where the Missouri Attorney General, The Missouri Secretary of State offices are and the action is the State of Missouri whose capital is located and whose principal duties are performed.

The entire filing is attached. The Suit was filed by Sherry DeJanes a Kansas City Attorney, founder of BE SMART KC. Be Smart KC supports Modern, Affordable Regional Transit!

If you or anyone you know lives in the expanded TDD and had a difficult time getting a ballot to vote or did not get to vote, please contact BeSmartKC www.besmartkc.com or CFRG123@gmail.com.

They won a vote that said the streetcar needed approval from all of KC. And the streetcar people still wanted to go ahead and defy the election.

This needed to happen, glad there was somebody who wasn't afraid to do it.

KC JD said...

Look real close at where the lawsuit was filed, this isn't as rigged as Jackson County. The streetcar advocates did it do themselves by trying to get around a real election when they lost in 2014.

Even the State auditor has been revealing how corrupt TDD practices are in this state. With KCMO being very high on the list.

Be interesting and entertaining to see the Streetcar Mafias spin and evasion on this one.

where is the streetcar extension supposed to go? I've tried to follow it, but information seems not readily available, which is not a surprise. I've noticed proposal to extend to berkley riverfront which seems premature at best.

The Council's actions on the Street Car TDD election was an abomination of the elective process. It is amazing that this council continues to pursue this expansion. I am 5 blocks from the proposed Main Street expansion. My taxes would increase by approximately $1,000 per year. There is no way this will in any way increase the value of my property. At the same time I look at the streets, curbs, sidewalks and sewers in my neighborhood which have been totally neglected over the past 25 years.
Shame on you...

Katherine Shields should run to be the next mayor.
She gets it.

i think an expansion to plaza on main street is a good idea, or else it will be a forever stunted. But if it increased my property taxes a $1000/year i'd have a hissy fit too.

12:58: Are you too good to use the MAX?

Anonymous said...

1:09 i do not live convenient to the max or rail. But u do accidentally make the point that the streetcar lacks real-time arrival capabilities which i had bitched about the bus system lacking in 1998. U used to have to go the library to figure out bus schedules.

Anonymous said...

had to go to library to figure out routes & schedules. not convenient for residents or visitors.

Pretty thin soup to base a lawsuit on. "I'm too old to use the Internet."

Anonymous said...

1:35: You're obviously using a computer. Have you tried kcata.org? You can discover the best bus routes and as well as departure and arrival times. Alternatively, there are the paper schedules, and I think some libraries still carry them.

At any rate, the MAX runs between downtown and the Plaza at least every half hour, so your longest wait would be 30 minutes.

Anyone with a smart phone can easily find your bus route schedules and arrival times at your location. Use the "Transit" app or Google. Simple. No need to have to use a computer, paper maps or go to the library. And the Max runs every 15 minutes during peak times of day.

Anonymous said...

2:16 That has zero relevance to what i said. The point of the MAX kiosks was to make it convenient to a user walking down the street to gain immediate knowledge of routes and arrival times without doing everything u say. And ironically everything u say is the meat of the lawsuit to prevent the expansion of rail, they got to go online and do not have a car to get anywhere. joker.

I'MA TOO OLD TO USE THE INTERNETS

Well get with the program grandma, it's 2017 already, and since the Internet has been established legally as a source of information this lawsuit will get thrown out faster than a Louie Wright libel suit gets settled for undisclosed terms but known to be in excess of $100k damages.

Anonymous said...

2:23 but not everyone has money for a smart phone and they can't print out the necessary info to register with one even if they did. Again u are telling folks to use methods that are the meat of the objections to the voting process. 97 year old plaintiff surely still has to use a taxi.

Anonymous said...

all u folks giving tips on bus schedules must be too good to use the max bus or you would know you can get that info on their kiosks.

Anonymous said...

The Max kiosks are nice but they only work downtown and midtown. The Max bus begins at 75th and Wornall and many of the stops in Waldo and Brookside don't have kiosks. So you have to have a general idea of when it might be arriving at your nearest location. I check my transit app from my home and when the Max bus is 10 minutes away, I walk three blocks to my corner and it's at my stop in minutes.

Maybe if u do not know jack shit about transportation or urban planning and basically know jack shit about current systems, u should stay the fck away from the subject and the voter booth.

I think the extension should run right up Sly's fat fucking lard ass.

2:39 what logic are u using? Everything u say the plaintiffs can not do, and is their reason to file the suit.

Thank you.. finally a good idea and a smart comment..

They should include the biggest complaint about this:

The city held a vote on this and it was overwhelmingly shot down (65-35 right?). Then the city & KCRTA took the data about where this could pass & then created a voting district with that data. Thats the literal definition of voter disenfranchisement and sets an incredible precedent that will almost certainly be used to disenfranchise minorities in the future. This can't be allowed to stand.

Anonymous said...

The Council has lost all credibility with its voters. I predict the Council gets shut out on the Convention Hotel, The Street car expansion and the Airport.
These folks do not represent the entire City, just their own districts. Place the burden of the Street Car on a very small group of properties including residences which will in no way benefit from the expansion.
Disgraceful...

The election process clearly is voter suppression. The judge that approved it needs to be recalled.

Meh, just another lawsuit that will be dismissed.

All the toy train supporters were prepared a year in advance for this. The general public was left in the dark scratching their heads wondering what in the fuck was going on right up until election day.

Totally Rigged!

As surely as depositing warm sperm into Leah Francis' amazing vagina is a great idea, the expansion will also happen.

If you shop at Costco or Home Depot in midtown, you will be paying more. The trolley folks will increase sales taxes if you live or shop in the district. This is necessary so they can provide free rides to the tourist.

Anonymous said...

There have been two fair & open votes on the streetcar and it has lost both times. There have been two rigged elections which the trolley won. To vote in the rigged elections you had to fax a request for a mail-in ballot and then to cast the ballot it had to be notarized. This is clearly voter suppression at its worse!

I think it's ironic that the TKC "geezer hater" is getting old himself and now might find himself pushed out by better tweeters.

Good luck selling that social media skill to any employer but Sly!

Seeing as how I 'support" the Street Car by riding it when I go to downtown KC, I need to be sued too.

agentzero said...

This is what happens when you don't run an integrity process and you deny the public options, deliberation, fairness, and competition. Why didn't they just do the right thing to start with. Because their sponsors pay for the fix and dammit they think that trumps everything. The public hit the gong and will again. No slinking it in under radar Sly.

The era of special interests appears to be coming to a close in Kansas City. The era of special "rights" is also on the fast track to being rescinded. Our nation and our city are going to return to human rights and compassion for those who are not average. If you view yourself as a member of a group with rights get ready for the return to responsibility not "MY RIGHTS".
