TRANSIT PETITION ACTIVIST CLAY CHASTAIN CLAIMS HE CAN WIN NO MONEY KANSAS CITY MAYORAL CAMPAIGN!!!
A hopeful missive that might not understand that cash runs politics in Kansas City . . .
Clay is not the "Cash King," but is the Idea King in his grassroots campaign for mayor
Evidently, Attorney's Lucas and Miller are ahead of all other mayoral candidates in the corrupting contest to raise money from mostly those trying to buy influence. You know the usual corrupting suspects...wealthy developers, powerful law firms, big constructions firms and unions, etc. "Those," will not influence Clay's administration because he is not accepting their money nor seeking their endorsements. Nevertheless, Clay can still win because he is the only candidate with the willingness and capability to reduce violent crime, address infrastructure and neighborhood improvements the people care about and initiate bold innovative ideas to move our City forward like never before.
Here are three more reasons Clay can win the race for mayor without money, without endorsements and without kissing up to the Fake News Kansas City Star:
#1. Clay is a sensible, sincere and problem-solving engineer, not another clueless wealthy attorney with connections.
#2. Clay is an outsider (but with long-time direct connections to Kansas City) who possesses the strength of character and tenacity to stand up to the corporate developers, insiders and special interest that control City Hall.
#3. Clay has demonstrated his loyalty to helping improve Kansas City over the years (without pay) more than all the other mayoral candidates combined.
For years, Sly and City Hall left the people drowning in crime and decay in favor of glitzy tax-abated projects. And now this secretive and manipulative government is trying to rush upon the community a misrepresented multi-billion new glitzy airport when renovating KCI, using the "ALT 30" plan, is the superior option.
Clay is ready to come to the rescue.
I'm not Sly. My name is Clay. And I won't leave you when I'm mayor.
