TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY TAX FIGHTERS FEAR COUNCIL READY TO OVERTURN CITYWIDE STREETCAR VOTE!!!
On a cold Winter's night . . . Take a look at tax fighters asking for Kansas City voters to save local Democracy . . . Remember that El Bryan gave us an important breakdown on this impending legislative smack down on its way. Take a look at another perspective.
Hearing Tomorrow: Council Committee will start the process to overturn 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. Ordinance 171032 will be discussed.
We asked every member of the City Council whether they would stand behind their constituents and insist your vote be honored as cast. The only Council members answering our request were Heather Hall who insisted she will back her constituents and Alissia Canady who told us she would review the ordinance to overturn your vote.
We have to assume all other council member will support this ordinance and over turn your vote to demand a citywide vote before any streetcar expansion. They will quote all kinds of silly reasons like “constitutional infirmities” . If they over throw this vote, they set a precedent to overthrow every vote they don’t like. Elections are coming and we need to remind the council they work for us!
PLEASE CALL, E-MAIL OR BOTH your City Council Representative and tell them you expect them to support the voter's 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 today and let them know you will be watching.
