TKC QUESTION: SHOULD PREZ TRUMP FUND ILLEGAL KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR EXTENSION???
Back in August Kansas City voters approved Question 1 - An effort to STOP KANSAS CITY STREETCAR DEVELOPMENT WITHOUT CITYWIDE APPROVAL.
Quick reminder of Democracy in action . . .
"Kansas City residents voted 51 percent to 49 percent in support of a petition initiative from streetcar opponents. The vote was 17,344 to 16,492 in favor of reining in the city’s participation."
However . . .
KANSAS CITY IS SO CORRUPT THAT ELECTIONS DON'T REALLY MATTER!!!
Even tax fighters realize this and they're taking a court fight to Jeff City over the Unconstitutionally of streetcar expansion following a FULL STOP public vote.
In the meantime, the toy train streetcar effort chugs along . . .
KC Biz Journal: KC Streetcar Authority advances extension effort, will seek federal grant
Not really surprising and it's propaganda not news . . . But it does beg an interesting question:
SHOULD PREZ TRUMP FUND THE KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR DESPITE A CITYWIDE VOTE TO SLOW DOWN THE PROJECT AND THE LEGAL FIGHT AGAINST THE CONSTITUTIONALITY OF THIS EFFORT???
Given that Prez Trump wanted to cut federal transit Tiger Grants from the new GOP budget. It might be a tough sell.
You decide . . .
