SWM Seeks Civic-Minded Babe


From remarks written in the margins of a petition circulated by Clay Chastain, a forty-four-year-old Kansas City, Missouri, activist and former mayoral candidate who has been gathering signatures in support of a public referendum on his plan to revive Kansas City’s Union Station.
