TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY TAX FIGHTERS CHALLENGE CITY COUNCIL AFTER STREETCAR BETRAYAL!!!
As election season in Kansas City moves closer, here's the word from local activists vowing to remember a recent vote that chipped away at a 2017 election victory . . .
CFRG: Council Sells Out Voters on our Streetcar Vote.!!!
On Thursday 1/18/18 the KCMO voters learned once again that our Mayor and several members of our City Council are more concerned with their own interests and special interests than they are concerned for their constituents. Only Teresa Loar and Heather Hall saw through all the BS spread by the council members.
Should we give Scott Taylor a pass as he was smart enough to leave the room and skip the vote? Or should he be included in the list of traitors?
Ten Council members voted to negate an important part of the ordinance stopping future streetcar expansion without a public vote. The traitors talked about "streetcar contracts that couldn’t be broken". Yet nobody has ever produced a contract? Do these contracts exist? We seriously doubt it.
Our City Attorney often uses language like “unconstitutional, vague” etc. and all the so called lawyers on the City Council buy it, they’re easily led. Not a one of these lawyers asked to see what contracts have been signed and who signed them? They squashed their constituents in an effort to appease the special interest and further their own careers.
There is a Mayoral election coming up and not one of the council members who voted against voters Thursday is worthy of our vote for the next Mayor… They will all be asking for our support...Justus, Shields, Barnes, Canady, Fowler, Reed, Lucas, McManus, and Wagner all showed where their allegiance lies and it’s not with the voters. The Mayor stood for the special interests as he always does. This is not the first time for several of the other individuals. They are weak and not qualified to represent the voters of Kansas City.
Starting today, we need to begin to recruit candidates from all six council districts who will represent the voters and not their own self-interests or special interests. There are candidates out there, we need to find them. The only way we will be able to change the status quo is to elect three or four council members willing to do the job they are elected to do. It’s time to drain the “local swamp”! Heather Hall and Teresa Loar need help on issues which are important to the majority of the voters.
Our beautiful City is failing and we can’t let that happen. No Company like AMAZON or APPLE will locate in Kansas City as long as we have high crime, poor schools, and a city government that can’t function because they think they are the smartest people in the universe and they refuse to bring in outside experts to get the big jobs done right. They continue to push crony capitalism. All you have to do is look at the airport fiasco or the downtown hotel, local jails and prisons, a streetcar that has to be bailed out by city buses every time you turn around, etc.
We are looking for some hard working, sound minded individuals willing to step forward and serve their constituents.
