Mayor-Elect: Light Rail a Top Priority

Mark Funkhouser will take the top seat in Kansas City government on May 1, along with a "gently used" city council (a handful are re-elects and former Missouri state legislators). Funkhouser was short on transit specifics during the primary and general election (as were most, although kudos to Jim Glover for riding the MAX to hand out campaign literature and shake hands). An article in the Star last week notes that Funk plans to make one of his first priorities "reach[ing] out to suburban officials to work on mass transit, including light rail". We haven't had a chance to talk to Funk about light rail directly, but we have spoke to one of his campaign people (Britt), who assured us that it really is one of his top issues.
