CLAY GETS SOME ACTION!!!
The latest from KCMO's most prolific petitioner:
Ta-da! Fightin Clay's petition to recall misbehavin elected officials gets quick results.
* Days after I announced a recall petition protesting Mayor Lucas' and Councilwoman Shields' refusal to honor the November election result of the "Save the Paseo" petition, the City began taking down the MLK signs.
* Days after I announced a recall petition protesting Mayor Lucas' and Councilwoman Shields' refusal to (also) honor a City Clerk - "certified" "Green Transit" petition (voters mandated be placed before citywide voters), I received a phone call from the Missouri Attorney General's "Public Corruption" office. An Attorney there informed me they were opening an investigation of the City's bad faith refusal to respect the will of the KCMO voters who signed the petition.
#1 Moral of the story: KCMO elected officials who do not respect valid public petitions will be held accountable.
#2 Moral of the story: When elected officials violate the public trust (in KC or DC), "Fightin Clay will go get em"!
For the record: Because I harbor no (personal) ill will toward either elected official, and because the recall petition made its point, I will contact the City Clerk today and inform her to cancel preparing the recall petition against Mayor Quinton Lucas and Councilwoman Shields. Thus, I officially withdraw the recall petition.
Long live Kansas City's democratic petition process - the ultimate power of the people.
