I doubt anyone in their right mind would vote for it or sign it if they know its Clay.

I do think it would be nice if there was some sort of announcement about the regional investment. That way people will know something bigger and better is actually coming.....

Waiting on the Chamber to focus their "transportation" initiative.

And they'll only carry four people each. WTF?


I mean I normally pretend to get the mail if I can't take the elevator by myself, so this sounds like hell.

He’s had some weird plans and some that at least made a little sense

This one is just weird. The soccer village is normally dead, why end there? And gondolas across downtown? As a way to go up a hill there was thought there as it took people up a hill no one wants to walk up. But from Barney allis plaza? Why?

And taking the tax will just end with it thrown out. It’s the sign of a lazy plan.

Is there any sort of target date/month for an announcement.
Additionally, is it looking like their plan will include regional rail?

The last time I say Clay gathering petitions he was asking people to 'sign a petition for better transportation' so lots of people signed without asking for details. I hope this one doesn't even get on the ballot.

Keep an eye out to protest while he gathers. Defense!

Has anyone run into people collecting signatures for the new proposal?

Streisand effect in play

Sue over something no one knows about and suddenly everyone knows he was deemed to be dangerous.

Especially sad, did not know he called women who signed petitions. Creepy.

Well, we are talking about a city administration that once blocked residents they didn’t like or who criticized the city from accessing the @kcmo twitter account. And the city administration who gave a presentation that included a list of online “frenemies” - most of whom they had also blocked. So if there were a list like what Chastain describes it would not be a total shock.

That was a fun sunshine request to put in.

The last time I saw a Chastainian acolyte collecting signatures was 2014 in the foyer of Price Chopper/ Milgram's in Brookside (at B'kside Plaza and Meyer). My elderly father flew into full curmudgeon mode and interrogated him about Chastain's Virginia residence.
