Mahony blog: Citizens Association Walk Away From Street Car Plan
"The Citizens Association, which is generally considered a progressive group, did not endorse the street car expansion plan on the August 5 ballot. The group announced Friday it “reserves judgment “ because its board does not think it has sufficient information to make a decision about a complicated issue."
Moreover . . .
HERE'S A TKC EXCLUSIVE INSIGHT INTO CITIZENS ASSOCIATION INNER TURMOIL AND A SPIRITED DEFENSE OF HONCHO DAN COFRAN WHO IS TAKING HEAT OVER THIS DECISION!!!
IN DEFENSE OF DAN COFRAN
"The delay in CA publishing the outcome of the vote is pretty much standard operating procedure for us - we have discussion, debate, a vote or a series of votes and choose to take, or not take, a position on an issue. Based upon the discussion and motion that was voted, we agree at that meeting generally what we want to say, and Dan, typically the following day, distributes a draft resolution via email, and our board members discuss and suggest modifications to the wording and Dan dutifully issues revised resolutions and we may go through one or even ten versions until everybody is satisfied with the end result. Then with board approval the resolution is made public.
"That's pretty much how our board resolutions are handled after a vote. It may take a day or a week depending upon the discussion.
"Whether you like Dan, find him annoying, or whatever he has never attempted to rig or inappropriately influence or bias a vote or resolution. The fact is he does a fantastic job putting together and reflecting the true consensus of the board - - it's very time consuming and it's clear to all of our board members that his focus and actions are all about objectively serving the organization.
"Dan's not perfect, but he does not in any way and a never has tried to inappropriately or unethically influence the outcome of CA deliberations.
"The CA board membership is diverse and very much reflects the wide variety of viewpoints in our city and he's doing a pretty good job making sure every voice on our board is heard."
Actually, here @ TKC we like Dan but realize that controversy will always follow the Kansas City leader because, as other insiders have told us . . . "A leopard can't change his mustache . . ."
