KANSAS CITY TRANSIT ACTIVIST CLAY CHASTAIN STAYS LOSING LIGHT RAIL VOTE!!! WILL HE HONOR PROMISE TO FINALLY DROP THE 'DEAD' KANSAS CITY ISSUE???
Once again light rail activist Clay Chastain suffered defeat at the ballot box with a big voter rejection of his effort.
Kansas City Question #3 was defeated soundly . . .
It's worth considering that Clay had 68k people agree with him despite every politico and every media outlet arguing against his plan.
Now, Clay promised to abandon his KCMO election advocacy if he was unsuccessful this time around.
"Chastain, who has used initiative petitions to get several light-rail proposals on ballots during the past 20-plus years, outlined his latest during a public forum Monday that attracted a crowd of only 10 people to a meeting room at the Kansas City Public Library's Country Club Plaza branch. "If they vote for it, we're going for it," Chastain said. "But if it's voted down, I'll consider the light-rail issue in Kansas City dead."
Still, he has made that promise before . . . Let's see if he keeps it or what he says this time around.
