CELEBRATE!!! TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! SKETCHY KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR EXTENSION RIGGED VOTE FAILS TO GET FEDERAL FUNDING!!!
Right now there's just a bit of justice in the world and proof that undermining Kansas City voters will not be rewarded this year.
To wit . . .
THE KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR EXTENSION WAS REJECTED FOR FEDERAL FUNDING THIS FISCAL YEAR!!!
This sets back so many rigged elections that VIOLATED A CITYWIDE VOTE FOR TOTAL KANSAS CITY PARTICIPATION.
Even better, TDDs are now falling out of favor and locals are asking Missouri politicos in Jeff City to step in against so much local subversion of Democracy in the name of questionable development schemes.
Here's the word:
KMBC: KC Streetcar Authority fails to get federal funding for Main Street expansion this year
The KC Streetcar project team sought $151 million in federal funding to be combined with $164 million in local funding from the voter-approved Transportation Development District for an expansion to the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
"We are in the midst of trying to figure out what this means to the KC Streetcar Main Street Extension to UMKC, but we do plan to continue working this year to get the project into the engineering phase," said Donna Mandelbaum, KC Streetcar communications director.
Not to worry, TKC reveals what this means . . .
OLD SCHOOL TRANSIT IS OUT OF FAVOR WITH THE FEDS & LOCAL HYPE COULD NOT QUIET KANSAS CITY DISCONTENT WITH THE SCHEME THAT RAN ROUGHSHOD ON VOTER & PROPERTY RIGHTS!!!
Just a bit of encouragement . . .
KANSAS CITY VOICING TOY TRAIN OPPOSITION RESONATED IN THE NATION'S CAPITAL EVEN WHEN CITY HALL TRIED TO SILENCE THE CONVERSATION VIA SECRET VOTER SUPPRESSION MAIL-IN BALLOT!!!
Of course streetcar advocates ignore this rebuke from D.C. but they have denied community push back and consistent rejection via open votes.
The fact is, the money is running out and when it does . . . Don't be surprised to see a lot less enthusiasm about this touristy frou-frou outdated mode of transit.
