PETITION ACTIVIST CLAY CHASTAIN LAUNCHES NEW EFFORT TO RECALL KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS & COUNCIL LADY SHIELDS!!!
The transit crusader acknowledges that a road trip is now involved for his Conservative push back . . .
Clay Chastain: CitizenPetitionsMatter, but not to liberal Democrats Lucas & Shields. Republican Chastain coming to KC to campaign and recall both.
Local liberal democrats are selective in what matters.
For 430 days, Kansas City's government (now led by liberal democrats Mayor Lucas & Councilwoman Shields) has deliberately, defiantly and shrewdly refused to place a valid petition from We the People on a citywide ballot. City Clerk, Marilyn Sanders, certified to the full Council that the petition was "sufficient" (qualified for the ballot) way back on April 25, 2019. Obviously, these two public servants don't think CitizenPetitionsMatter!
Kansas City's government does not like the petition because it asks voters to modernize transit and thus would, effectively, nullify expanding the obsolete streetcar. Lucas and Shields ignore the fact Missouri courts have ruled the voters - not the government- are to decide the merits of a petition. By refusing to let citywide voters decide the merits of this petition, Lucas and Shields have not only violated the City Charter and Missouri law, they have also violated the public trust.
I contemplated it before. I am compelled to do it now - recall Lucas and Shields because...CitizenPetitionsMatter!
