The Task Force Letter

The Kansas City Post has the letter from some members of the Light Rail Task Force decrying the process and what little political support they’ve received. Our favorite quote is the reference to members of the Task Force who don’t want light rail in the first place. Sad indeed. Even worse is that this task force followed one that expertly managed to hammer out the city’s economic development policy (televised meetings, media coverage, regular council updates, etc.). Granted, the Chastain vote, subsequent council repeal, and lawsuits muddied the waters quite a bit… still no excuse for transparency and listening to the group you convened for the sole purpose of providing recommendations.
