New Chastain petition drive starts Monday

After a failed attempt at working directly with the Parks Board, Clay Chastain is starting another light rail petition initiative. He will be gathering signatures from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday at Union Station. Laugh if you must, but Chastain is the only person who’s actually doing something about light rail right now. What better way to keep the city’s feet to the fire than sign the petition again?

No gondolas this time — which we feel was a pretty good idea… ever walked from Union Station to Liberty Memorial? Yeah, didn’t think so — but the electric buses are back, fueled this time by wind turbines on the riverfront. And if you think that’s koo-koo, check out Oklahoma City’s plan again.

And even though the Missouri Court of Appeals struck down Chastain’s legal challenge from the last initiative, he’s still threatening to take that one to the Missouri Supreme Court.
