KANSAS CITY MAYORAL CANDIDATE CLAY CHASTAIN DEMANDS COUNCIL CONTENDERS URGE MAYOR SLY TO SETTLE LAWSUIT WITH TRANSIT ACTIVIST!!!
Seasons greetings on #TBT from this longtime denizen of the local discourse . . .
Mayoral Candidate Clay Chastain Issues Open Ultimatum To Council Candidates Also Running For Mayor
Outsider mayoral candidate Clay Chastain, Kansas City's Last Great Hope to save it from corruption and decline, hereby issues the following open ultimatum to the six city council members... Quinton Lucas, Jolie Justus, Alissia Canady, Scott Wagner, Scott Taylor and Jermaine Reed... running for mayor:
Unfortunately, this ultimatum does not bring with it good tidings.
The City, apparently under Sly James' orders and your acquiescence, wrongly and deliberately placed me on the City's SECRET "Watch List" (for citizens the city considers "dangerous") for political retaliation. This resulted in my being unduly detained, unduly searched and unfairly accompanied throughout city hall by an armed security guard for over 3 years. The intent of this wrongful and illegal act against me, directed by the Sly James' Administration and the City's legal department, was to improperly use the city's security force to harass me, intimidate me, humiliate me and smear my public reputation.
Though impassioned about my various causes to help improve Kansas City over the years, I have never given the city any reason whatsoever to believe me capable of committing violence against anyone at city hall or threatening anyone at city hall with violence. I am a peaceful family man and a christian.
I am currently suing the city for defamation and have won the first two rounds in the circuit court of the Honorable Judge Kevin. D. Harrell. However, the city is now appealing Judge Harrell's ruling and trying to drag this case out until Sly is out of office. A government cannot treat its citizens like that.
Here is your ultimatum: Instruct Mayor Sly James and the city's legal department to quickly settle this matter out of court with me (so that all the candidates in the mayor's race can focus on the issues facing our City) or else I will make this lawsuit, and the city hall corruption surrounding it, an issue during the campaign and mayoral debates.
