Forget Democracy in Kansas City
Yesterday, Mayor Funkhouser and 9 other members of the Kansas City city council voted to repeal Clay Chastain's light rail plan. This was voted on last year and almost 74000 people in Kansas City voted yes for it. Yesterday, Funkhouser and the council decided that the voters in Kansas City don't really have a voice and that we obviously can't make the correct decisions. Shame on them for going down this slippery slope. They say they have a new plan for us to vote on. I say we vote to recall all of them and put new leadership into Kansas City!
