TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR FANBOY DAVID JOHNSON ENDORSES JOLIE JUSTUS FOR MAYOR!!!



Before we get started . . . Let's acknowledge that David Johnson is probably a good guy. He has way more friends and a brighter future than our angry crew of reprobates, curmudgeons and gadflies united by the scribbling of a troglodyte blogger who never should have dropped out of pre-med in order to graduate from the city college with a nasty and utterly useless degree in the art/science of Communications Studies.

Nevertheless . . .

David Johnson's politics suck.

He's a big government, high tax, higher spending, tireless proponent of the streetcar who doesn't seem to think that Democracy is necessary for expanding the toy train. Mr. Johnson has championed the smaller rigged mail-in votes to move the project forward and, along with most of his colleagues, has ignored a CITYWIDE ELECTION demanding more input from voters throughout KCMO.

Mr. Johnson bills himself as the At-Large TDD Director for @kcstreetcar & @ridekctransit strategist.

More importantly . . .

DAVID JOHNSON AND MOST OF THE TOY TRAIN CREW LOVE JOLIE JUSTUS!!!

Another TKC aside . . . Like it or not and because nobody will say it until an overly wordy newspaper column attempts to "report" what everybody already knows: The endorsement is just another manifestation of the KCMO's Mayoral contest coming down to a White Vs. Black grudge match.

But I digress . . .

Here's the important part of his tribute:

"I walked the length of Kansas City with @joliejustus over the last 10 weeks because I believe she's the best and most qualified candidate for Mayor. If you care about equity, transportation, and safe neighborhoods, vote for Jolie . . ."

That's a declaration for the primary but it's still pinned to his Twitter page in hopes of rallying his followers.

And so we ask . . .

WILL STREETCAR LOVE POWER JOLIE JUSTUS INTO THE MAYOR'S OFFICE?!?

Rather than get into personal beef from many of the dude's election opponents, let's simply talk policy and realize that streetcar advocates have bullied and argued their way past voters, biz owners and neighborhood leaders in order to get their way. Credit where it's due, supporters of the streetcar have institutional backing from the Greater Chamber Of Commerce, the Civic Council and a bevy of developers who have bet big money on this mode of transit progress/hype. It would be unwise to underestimate their influence and this faction of Kansas City transit leaders backing Jolie Justus for mayor . . . Despite opposition by so many opponents of their scheme.

You decide . . .

softening on the streetcar? You're giving them way too much credit.

^^^ Agree, the streetcar might have a lot of influence among developers but not voters. The lose every time they open up the vote to a wider swath of voters.

KCJd said...

Not just streetcar but also creative class, media people, consultants and crossroads residents. Not an insignificant group and basically the kind of people that have been behind the downtown Renaissance which even TKC has to acknowledge.

Oh wow. That's a big one! Hahahaha.

Equity, transportation, and safe neighborhoods"?
Hahahaha!!
Johnson just wants that new $175,000/year "transportation coordinator" job that Justus promises to create.
Just another leech on the taxpayer's money.

Really a marketing dept for a 2 miles streetcar line . Hundreds of thousands of $$$$$ gone to waste.

White liberals talk about diversity and then don't vote for a minority candidate.

Well, yeah. I wouldn’t vote for a minority either. Nothing wrong with that.

And lil' Davie Johnson, that whisper-thin cheerleader for boutique rail, is heard from. Of the collective clown show at city hall, Davie is probably the most dishonest. While the rest of city struggles with infrastructure, failing schools, and exploding crime, lil' Davie flaps his arms and DEMANDS catastrophic investment in the illusion of downtown Disneyworld no matter what the voters say.

Isn't it PRECIOUS?

Anonymous said...

Davie probably doesn't do much 'walking of the city' outside his happy little fun park. What a pompous ass. You're a real rail-splitter, Davie. What a rugged man of the people.

Toy Train should be funded by visitors, not by those of us who live near it but never use it. 19th Century tech!!

No he is not probably a good guy. Quite the opposite in fact.

David is only looking out for himself and he will use whoever to get what he wants. David does not care if his views are in the best interest of the city

Why not do a walking tour of the KCMO schools? They're the real issue that no one talks about

All ears.

^^^ Besides using people, lying, and cheating, and claiming it's all ethical?


Let me think about that.

David seems a little self righteous.

10:41 you really do need to get some help, your continuous preoccupation with geriatrics and shit seems to be a psychosis, which with some help you might be able to conquer. Meanwhile, go back to cleaning those bedpans!

The momentum is gone. No one rides the street car because it is TOO SLOW.
However, the debt remains.
Local residence 1/8 mile on each side are tired of paying and paying year after year for something that used to be popular but no longer is.

Then.....there will be a provision passed by the council, in the middle of the night, to transfer the debt payments to the general fund, because a local interest group greased the wheel of the council.

The fucking CITY issued these bonds! Not the TDD!
People don't read and are fucking stupid.

Then ask yourself, was that democracy? Since everyone now pays.

One of the most unethical and destructive persons to ever set foot in KCMO.

So he's a perfect fit for the corrupt shit hole political environment here.

Cutest thing for me about the li'l nostalgia train is there are not one but *two* PR persons for it. A 2 mile route with two spokespersons .... Is there a PR man who represents the 47 Broadway bus route? Is there a press secretary for the 101 state ave. bus? So silly. The post by "fast forward 15 years" is exactly right. For those civic minded types who care about public policy and transit the KC streetcar is a total joke. Even if it were 100% funded by a fat federal check. But now the federal money is long gone so the reality is it is going to suck local money away from legitimate needs e.g. bus service and infrastructure.

Thanks,
Radish

Why does what is essentially a bus become so cool when it is confined to tracks ? 18th century technology.

No reason to be. Anyone who actually knows him can tell you what a huge phony he is, and lots of unethical people get paid pretty good money when they know whose ass to kiss.

Oh. You intended irony. Again. Troll game still needs work.

sometimes the racism in the comments is intolerable and I'm not a fan of politically charged hit pieces, especially when they are directed at a minor political public personality.

But Martin Luther Streetcar is fudging hilarious!

Nice one.

Are you bleeping kidding me? 2 for those hobo streetcar that no one will ride once they start charging for it.

Anonymous said...

The pathetic category of Streetcar advocate looking for more double digit millions, perhaps more like triple digit millions for extensions now is needing to be checked. Autonomous beats it every way to Sunday but the city can't get their arms around it.

See the latest Elon Musk interview at length and then tell me we are right to bet against autonomous shuttles which have every advantage in cost, and responsiveness, flexibility too.

The entrenched and smug are purposefully being negligent here.
