Kansas City's most prolific petitioner shares his latest word on an ongoing rail transit petition struggle and a fight for direct democracy in Kansas City . . . Along with a dire warning of liberal "progress" that he has seen in the cowtown over the course of decades.
Clay Chastain: Only the Committee of Petitioner's Federal Lawsuit (against City Hall) can save KC democracy and reverse KC's long liberal slide toward ruin.
If it wasn't so good, it would be on the ballot.
If it wasn't so good, City Hall would not be so afraid.
If City Hall were not so afraid, the media would cover it.
And if this landmark case prevails (US District Judge Roseann Ketchmark orders City Hall to put the petition on the ballot), City Halls' devious, oppressive and ruinous liberal reign over the voice of the people will be over. And, our local silent toothless watchdogs can answer why they did not hold City Hall accountable. This long fought for cause (to make meaningful KC's petition process) has been heroic and epic in proportion, as follows:
It has now been 536 days since City Clerk Marilyn Sanders certified the Committee's petition to the full Council as qualified for the ballot. KC's press has looked the other way while Mayor Lucas betrayed the very citizens he promised transparency.
So in Kansas City . . . This petition battle stands in obscurity. But not really. Like President Trump, it has a lot of silent voter support. And that is the real reason why far left-oriented City Hall will not play by the rules, act in good faith and place We the People's City-improving petition before voters. Stay tuned!
