TKC MUST SEE!!! CLAY CHASTAIN SHARES HIS 10 POINT PLAN TO SAVE KCI!!!



The latest plan from KC's most prolific petitioner and transit activist . . .

Amid on-going, inept and corrupt airport dealings, Candidate Clay has new developer to save and renovate KCI

Like city hall did with the streetcar and the taxpayer-subsidized downtown convention hotel, they are doing with the new single-terminal airport fiasco - sneaking around, doing dirty deals under the table and robbing taxpayers for another misbegotten project that is not for the common good of all.

A vote for honest engineer Clay is a vote not only to save, renovate and make even more safe, functional and convenient our existing airport, but also a vote to save the "City Beautiful" and stop these clandestine ill-conceived projects that increase the city's debt, rob taxpayers and are not for the benefit of the residents of Kansas City.

Conservative honest and maverick engineer Clay has aligned himself with a local professional engineer that has a marvelous, innovative and sensible plan to renovate good ole Kansas City International Airport. Here are the Top Ten advantages as to why terminal renovation is far better then terminal replacement at KCI:

#1. Renovating good ole KCI will cost substantially less (at least half the cost) than constructing a new airport.

#2. Good ole KCI has a hub-like multi-security check point design that makes it inherently safer than the new airport's single-security check point design.

#3. Unlike the new single-terminal airport (which will require older citizens, children and people with disabilities to have to walk over 1,000 feet to get to the far concourse (even farther from the new parking garage), good ole KCI retains the luxury of having aircraft taxi to us - not, have people walk long distances to the aircraft.

#4. The new airport will result in not only more aircraft entanglements (because the aircraft will have to operate within the tight quarters of the "H" design, but also the taxi times will be greater because the aircraft will have to taxi around the remote concourse to reach gates or active runways.

#5. Since good ole KCI is making the city a profit of $45 million per year, renovation will allow KCAD to keep effective financial control securely within its hands while maintaining competition between airlines.

#6. Terminal replacement will not only result in spending hundreds of millions of additional dollars tearing down good ole KCI, but also create a traffic nightmare compromising the airport's convenience for years.

#7. Renovation of good ole KCI will create new space including...illuminated, graceful roof lines, all up-graded amenities located in safe secured space and additional cost-effective parking space added atop existing parking garages at terminals A and B.

#8. Unlike good ole KCI's circular design, the new airport's H design will line up people and planes, like ducks in a row near the active runway, exposing KCI to catastrophe.

#9. Renovating good ole KCI retains 4,000 feet of curb space versus only 1,200 feet with the new airport design.

#10. Renovating good ole KCI and including in the design a state-of-the art transit station to serve a modern rapid transit system (connecting Kansas City International Airport to the northland, downtown, a Regional Multi-Modal Transportation Center at Union Station, the Plaza and the central city) will provide the residents of Kansas City the safest, most convenient and most accessible airport in the country!!!

Mayoral candidate, Clay Chastain

^^But since you don't reside in KC, who gives a fuck what you think!

He won't get more than 6% of the vote. You know that, right? said...

HEY EVERYBODY, LET'S PRETEND CLAY CHASTAIN IS REALLY A KANSAS CITY MAYORAL CANDIDATE!!!

He is a candidate and he will get a helluva lot of votes. The only candidate I would vote for!

While we thinking folks of the TKC blog, and even brainless prog sycophants who breathlessly wait comments so he can be the first to deride a salient non-progressive point, are vocal on this matter; Chastain is merely a small side show in the election. While I will vote for him, it means absolutely nothing in the race overall. There are far too many voters bought off by "free stuff" for me and other correct thinking individuals to make even the slightest dent.

^^^^^Hopefully a change can happen

If only all those voters who are so disgusted with this city government would actually vote instead of staying home, we might have a chance. Every election is decided by a small percentage of registered voters; but you cant blame them for not voting, your vote doesn't amount to a hill of beans in this City.

A guy who doesn't live in KC has a better plan then anyone on the city council. Fuck it, Clay 2019

I am making my own Clay Chastain yard signs right now. I'm voting for the guy, even if I have to write in his name. It's not that black candidates are bad people, it's just that they want to kowtow to the black voter, and their representative share of the tax base in Kansas city is well below that of the white voter. I wonder how many votes were bought off with renaming The Paseo to MLK JR Blvd? At least our tourists will know exactly what part of the city to avoid.

Home Run candidate. His common sense approach to solving City issues and problems would be vey helpful. This City has been hijacked by a council who does not care to represent the entire city. The special interest groups and cronies of the Council control the spending and agenda of this City.

Build a connector between terminal A and B to be used for the security checkpoints. Once passengers are through this checkpoint they can proceed to their plane's terminal. Arrivals just need to grab their luggage and exit the terminals. This meas existing doors can be used as an exit and not as an entrance.
Definitely remodel.

Top 10 Things KC Should Do To Improve Itself:

1. Declare the City Council a circus and the Mayor a clown- based solely on the murder rate and their failure to curb it. Sell tickets for $1 for people to walk in city hall to see them and take pictures to post to The Chive for their antics.

2. Sue the Mayor for bringing deceit to the Bow Tie industry.

3. Use Eminent Domain to take the Star building and have everyone who has been insulted by the editorial board throw rocks to break all the glass. After all the Catholics, Republicans and anyone who has actually paid anything for a paper throw rocks and the building implodes- declare that famous day “Dumbass Day” and have Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez be the poster child.

4. Have Russ sue again to eleiminate the fake 1% earnings tax and have the last 10 years returned to wage earners. After the city declared bankruptcy- sell all the parks and recreation land to pay for it. The caveat is it can only be sold to a Landfill Company.

5. Rename Main Street Trump Avenue with out a vote.

6. Declare April 1 Emmanuel anuel Cleaver Day. Provide free carwashes for all.

7. Find out where Carol Coe is and offer raffle tickets to win a chance to watch her spank Sly James on his ass for hoodwinking the fine voting citizens into building a new airport that can’t seem to be built. Money raised will go to help all the old folks who can’t pay their KC Water billls.

8. Build a new line for the trolley street car the goes into the Missouri River. After it’s maiden voyage and only voyage- declare it Sly James Day and apologize for one of the stupidest ideas ever.

9. Build a new big building downtown and call it “0 Light”. It will Be section 9 housing... which is just a bit better than Section 8- move the jail inmates in and let Frank White be in charge of the finances.

10. Change the downtown entertainment Mecca to Power & Light & Dark...cant discriminate against dark.
