TKC MUST SEE!!! TOY TRAIN STREETCAR SUPPORTERS BEG COUNCIL TO OVERTURN KANSAS CITY QUESTION 1 VOTERS!!!
A hastily thrown together website with faulty forms and featuring an outright lie as its tagline.
"Tell your Councilperson to repeal Question 1 now, because it prevents city officials and employees from conducting necessary city business."
Actually, Question 1 simply mandates a citywide vote for extending the streetcar which is reasonable given that KCMO resources PAID FOR BY ALL RESIDENTS support the line . . . And the streetcar can't move forward without more City Hall funding that goes beyond the TDD boundaries.
And once again we remind locals . . .
QUESTION 1 EARNED FIVE TIMES THE SUPPORT FROM KANSAS CITY VOTERS THAN THE RIGGED MAIL-IN STREETCAR EXTENSION VOTE THAT REQUIRED A NOTARY AND WAS SPECIALLY DESIGNED BY DEVELOPMENT LAWYERS!!!
Moreover, our main disagreement with the streetcar isn't even about the streetcar which is kinda cute and serves its purpose as overhype faux transit . . .
The dangerous part of streetcar irrational exuberance is the Mayor, members of Council, consultants, lawyers and biz people actively working to subvert local Democracy and bypass voters.
This latest grumbling looking to nullify voters is just another example the tend.
You decide . . .
