TKC MUST SEE!!! COMPLICATED BALLOT IN CORRUPT KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR EXTENSION VOTE EXPLAINED!!!
The voting is underway in Kansas City's toy train streetcar extension election and it's a way more complex than simply going to polling places and making a decision.
Moreover . . .
BECAUSE KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN SUPPORTERS WERE REJECTED IN 2014 THEY HAVE REVERED BACK TO CORRUPT, DESPICABLE AND DANGEROUS TACTICS THAT THREATEN LOCAL DEMOCRACY FAR BEYOND THE CHOO-CHOO PART DEUX!!!
The first streetcar extension defeat was resounding, across demographic lines and by way of a much broader vote at PUBLIC polling places.
And so, streetcar supporters moved back to a sketchy secret ballot wherein a few dozen carefully selected voters could decide HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS worth of local taxes which is beyond mere gerrymandering and more akin to a rigged vote.
This isn't just TKC ranting . . . Transportation Development Districts (TDDs) are one of the worst scams in the Show-Me State and that's according to a Democratic Party white lady who is far more likeable than a local blogger:
Missouri State auditor calls for overhaul of Transportation Development District laws
Nevertheless, the streetcar election is moving forward.
Accordingly, tax fighters offer this clip by way of explanation:
The court website is still probably the best place for local voters to start their research:
And while Congress and the Senate didn't cancel Tiger Grant federal transit funding according to the wishes of Prez Trump . . . The government money has been CUT BACK DRAMATICALLY as local streetcar enthusiasts face a tougher time garnering support outside of their tiny bubble.
