Admin is deluded into thinking that the last vote was a vote against expansion. That vote was a vote against Clay asstain because he's a loser and fucking a weirdo who's own sister hates him.

In KCMO you have to keep voting until you get it right. Democracy at it's finest.

7:15 am - you got it wrong. It was a vote against the streetcar. In fact the second one where citizens have said no.

Toot toot. Ad hominem hoot. Clunk.

A special purpose district is its own "government". Secondly, because the area within KC in Jackson County is not part of the Jackson County Board of Elections it is the responsibility of the city to run such elections. I am not a lawyer, but I don't think the August vote can stop this.

@915, the August vote can keep the City for spending one cent to hold this election.

Make it plain to this pack of scoundrels that they have to come up with the moola to pay the costs of an election themselves, and you'll never hear from any of them again. This is about getting their hands ON Tax Money, not spending their own!

9:15 is right in my view. Once a special tax district is established, it does not matter what voters outside that district do or don't want. I very much doubt that when special tax districts were considered, anybody dreamed that they would be used to fleece taxpayers out of $100 million or so at a pop. Some clever lawyers discovered the loophole, and the rest is, unfortunately, history. The streetcar and its extensions are both legal, but nonetheless they are scams.

Well, the TDD can hold their board elections, but if they plan to use city resources to start planning expansion, they're going to have to challenge the ordinance in court. They're also reliant on a TIGER grant to fully fund their expansion plans and they're not allowed to start collecting money from folks in the TDD until they meet the projections established to pay back their debt obligations. They're still numerous steps away from being able to move this project forward and they still have numbers legal hurdles to clear.

Start charging to ride the toy train and see how fast people go back to buses, walking and driving their own cars.
