TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! COUNCIL MOVES CLOSER TO OVERTURNING KANSAS CITY STREETCAR VOTES AMID ONGOING ELECTION AND DEMOCRACY DEBATE!!!
This week City Hall threatens to cancel 17,344 votes demanding citywide support for the embattled Kansas City streetcar.
Like it or not, insiders reveal the struggle to kill Kansas City Democracy doesn't have much opposition among elected officials.
Here's the word . . .
There are only two "NO" votes on the ordinance the council wants to enact (171032) to get KILL our petition which requires a CITYWIDE public vote before KCMO can spend money on planning for expansion or building a new streetcar (our Question 1 initiative won approval last August with support from more than 17,000 voters across Kansas City).
And then the topic of a corrupt process is up for debate in Jeff City . . .
Tonight at 5:00 p.m. there will be a hearing on the floor of the Missouri House of Representatives on a bill that proposes to eliminate the mail-in voting provision of the Transportation Development Statute. The bill is sponsored by Blue Springs Representative Dan Stacy.
Either way, these election issues remind us that, more than anything, the toy train streetcar helped destroy the myth of free & fair elections in Kansas City.
