TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY DEMOCRACY UNDER ATTACK: CITY HALL THREATENS TO OVERTURN CITYWIDE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR VOTES!!!
Last year more than 17,000 Kansas City voters demanded CITYWIDE approval before further extension of the streetcar. This week, an ordinance threatens to overturn the will of voters across KCMO.
A quick reaction to this legislation from activists . . .
"Our initiative petition past fair and square now look what they’re trying to do . . . Contact your council people and let them know you are against this!"
Here's further explanation of a controversial move that has greater implications for the municipal Democracy overall.
Further explanation . . .
Streetcar Authority, City of KCMO and the KCATA are trying to vacate your vote!
The Streetcar advocates (Streetcar Authority, KCATA ) are LOBBYING City Hall to overturn the voters decision to eliminate any streetcar expansion without a city wide public vote. We cannot let this happen. We voted for this law and we want if enforced . . .
PLEASE CALL, E-MAIL OR BOTH your City Council Representative and tell them you expect them to support the voters mandate to insist on a city wide vote before any further streetcar expansion. They cannot overturn our vote. If we vote to pass a law and our City Council ignores the voters decision and vacates the law, only anarchy can result. Elected officials must represent the majority of the people and the majority have spoken. Call / Email / or Both this week. Remind our City Council Representatives that elections are not far away and you will be watching how they represent the voters. Those of you in the Northland and on the Eastside should be the most vocal as you did the most to get the law passed. Stand up, be heard…
If we allow the City Council to nullify this election, they will nullify anything the voters pass if they don’t like it. They could establish a very dangerous precedent herein we don’t stop them. Call this week, let them know you will be watching.
