TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY ACTIVIST CLAY CHASTAIN EXPLAINS RECALL PETITION AS HE CHAMPIONS GREEN TRANSIT, THE PASEO & PREZ TRUMP!!!
Spring is almost here and Clay Chastain is marching forward with two bold efforts . . .
He's running for Congress and attempting to recall Mayor Quinton Lucas and Council Lady Katheryn Shields.
Local news isn't offering much coverage of his efforts but right now we're sharing a glimpse at his reasoning and info directly from the source. Checkit:
Clay Chastain E-Mail Blast
"Official Congressional Candidate Clay Chastain will hold Mayor Quinton Lucas & Councilwoman Shields accountable to the people for violating the public trust in refusing to place a valid "Green Transit" petition from the people on the ballot.
"Mayor Quinton Lucas and Councilwoman Shields have also failed to honor the "Save the Paseo" petition election and change the MLK signs back to Paseo Boulevard.
"I understand Mayor Lucas is a popular Mayor and has a nice smile. However, "smiling faces sometime lie and don't tell the truth". If Lucas & Shields change course and move the Council to place the"Green Transit" petition on the November 2020 ballot and change back the Paseo signs, I will suspend the petition drive to recall them from office.
"Republican Congressional Candidate Clay Chastain is prepared to bring Kansas City's Democrat machine (which has mismanaged and misplanned our City for decades, as well as lorded over petitions from the people) to a grinding halt."
And here's today's blast from Clay . . .
"Kansas City's popular and smiling emperor (no doubt without clothes) is already being manipulated by the status quo that has long controlled City Hall and felt threatened by petitions from the people.
"Mayor Lucas told Ch. 9 news (yesterday when Chastain filed his affidavit to recall Lucas and Shields for violating the public interest concerning ignoring both the people's "Green Transit" petition and the "Save the Paseo" petition election) that the City refuses to place Clay's transit-improving petition before voters because the City decided (arbitrarily) it is, "not financially feasible." This City Hall arrogance not only ignores the will of the voters, it also belies previous Missouri Court rulings (Judge Holliger (1995) and the Missouri Supreme Court (2014)...in which both courts concurred that, " the people have the right to legislate equally well or bad as do elected officials." And, "It is up to the voters, not the government, to decide the merits of petitions from the people." But Mayor Lucas and the City apparently think they know better than the stupid courts and the stupid voters!
"Alas, we appear to be at the hands of another mayoral dictator and puppet of the establishment.
"Like the liberal Democrats in Washington (that have tried to 'stop and trash' President Trump), the local Democrat machine here continues trying to stop and trash Community Activist Clay Chastain."
GOP Candidate for Congress, Clay Chastain
