We are asking you
Governor Jay Nixon, Mayor Francis Slay, Senator Roy Blunt and Senator
Claire McCaskill to exercise the power which you were given by the
votes of the people. We are taxicab drivers in the city and county of
St. Louis and are being harassed, tormented and squeezed for money to
fund the Metropolitan Taxicab Commission by the Metropolitan Taxicab
Commission. The way they are going about this is illegal. Your power is
public and we are asking for your help. Please investigate the corrupt
practices of this commission. The Missouri Constitution means nothing
to them, we have
proof of this. Metropolitan Taxicab Commission is out there to protect big companies; who have vested interest in Metropolitan Taxicab Commission .
Article I Fines or imprisonments fixed by administrative agencies.
Section 31. "That no law shall delegate to any commission, bureau, board
or other administrative agency authority to make any rule fixing a fine
or imprisonment as punishment for its violation."
Religious freedom--liberty of conscience and belief--limitations.
Section 5. " That all men have a natural and indefeasible right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of their own consciences; that no human authority can control or interfere with the rights of conscience; that no person shall, on account of his religious persuasion or belief, be rendered ineligible to any public office or trust or profit in this state, be disqualified from testifying or serving as a juror, or be molested in his person or estate; but this section shall not be construed to excuse acts of licentiousness, nor to justify practices inconsistent with the good order, peace or safety of the state, or with the rights of others."
is unbelievable that Metropolitan Taxicab Commission knowingly is imposing "FINE
(administrative penalty)" in the
presence of Section
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
We are not mad at any body. Our only concen is the deceptive practices of Metropolitan Taxicab Commission which not only is affecting the Drivers but also the consumers. In my opinion Metropolitan Taxicab Commission can not function as an independent entity unless they reduce the overwhelming involvement of the major Taxicab companies. These major Taxicab companies not only manipulate the situation to their personal gains but also creating an environment that they can utilize Metropolitan Taxicab Commission , so called an independent entity, to create an environment of dilemma and dismay amongst the drivers through their, I believe, illegal practices. I urge all concerned citizens to join and speak up against tyranny and join against Metropolitan Taxicab Commission which at the hands of big companies is thratening the basic fabric of this beautiful country in our community.
Our question is this
1. Why there is moratorium on new taxicab companies where as already established companies grow 10% per year?
2. Who authorized Metropolitan Taxicab Commission to have its own court?
3. Who authorized Metropolitan Taxicab Commission to impose fines?
4. Who authorized Metropolitan Taxicab Commission to declare a uniform for drivers?
5. Who Authorized Metropolitan Taxicab Commission to impose Tax ($6.00) on public for every Taxi leaving the airport?
6. Who authorized Metropolitan Taxicab Commission to draft new rules (Laws) behind closed doors to benefit few chosen ones?
