Unbeknownst to most Kansas City residents thanks to the despicable and clandestine scheming of the local consultant class and their corrupt media partners, there’s a vote on the future of the streetcar CURRENTLY underway.
We posted the info previously but our blog community is right to request a reminder . . .
Because last time the streetcar issue came up to a more open and public vote . . . It was resoundingly defeated.
The streetcar supporters can only win when the cheat.
However, the plans for the extension are already coming up against an obstacle more powerful than pulling off another gerrymandered election.
Like it or not . . . Here’s a “concern” that has been conveyed to insiders, council and delightful consultants who are more friendly with our blog community than their bosses and colleagues realize . . .
THE MAIN STREET SLOPE THREATENS KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR EXTENSION PLANS AND WILL NOT ONLY SPIKE COSTS BUT ALSO DELAY THE IMPENDING LOCAL ROUTE!!!
Already the KCMO streetcar has suffered maintenance problems, repeated breakdowns and nearly constant delays. CAF Urbos 3 have also confronted compressor concerns related to braking and sketchy performance in rain and ice. Navigating the Main Street hill in Kansas City presents a costly challenge given that the route stands at nearly a 45 degree angle on its steepest point. Meanwhile, what we’ve seen from Kansas City’s streetcar is that it doesn’t really work in bad weather.
Nevertheless, the hype continues with very few questions from a mostly complicit mainstream media.
While there has been a great deal of talk about Mayor Sly’s legacy this week . . . His greatest achievement is undoubtedly subverting local elections and voters with little to no opposition and in order to push forward a corporate tax and spend agenda.
And so . . .
The one year anniversary and the toy train is coming up as supporters continue their cheerleading and celebration amid skepticism from opponents who fear a runaway development agenda that once again threatens local small business, neighborhoods and the very fabric of Kansas City Democracy.
