SILLY KANSAS CITY COUNCIL LADY CINDY CIRCO SHILLS FOR MORE TAXPAYER CASH!!!
TKC NOTE: Thanks to a RATHER AWESOME TKC TIPSTER for sharing this message full of big promises and misleading statements from our favorite Kansas City Council Lady.
From Kansas Citians For Circo
I need your help!
On the ballot for Tuesday, August 7, are two questions that Kansas City must say yes to. We have a chance to improve our parks, streets, and sewers while reforming taxes.
Here is what you need to know.
Reforms the tax code by discontinuing three different property taxes and the vehicle fee paid only by those who live in Kansas City. That revenue is replaced by a ½-cent sales tax - paid by everyone including visitors and those who work here but don't live here. This replacement and the resulting broadening of the tax base is expected to raise additional revenue for the purpose of providing for the maintenance and operation of parks, parkways, boulevards, and street maintenance. The average Kansas Citian will pay only $1.50 more a month to drastically improve our basic services.
Question 1 simplifies the tax code, expands the tax base, and creates a dedicated streets fund for the first time in our history.
Authorizes Kansas City to issue revenue bonds to begin upgrading our antiquated combined sewer system, which currently allows sewage to mix with storm water run-off, polluting streams and rivers, and creating health hazards in the city; and to extend sanitary sewers where needed.
Question 2 takes advantage of historically low interest rates to finance these federally mandated sewer upgrades without increasing taxes.
Those are the questions on the August 7 ballot. My question for you is will you join me in working to make Kansas City best by voting YES on 1 & 2?
These two proposals will make Kansas City more attractive for residents and businesses while creating more than 20,000 new jobs in the next five years.
You can learn more about these proposals at www.progresskc.com.
Please join me on August 7 and vote Yes.
Let's make Kansas City BEST!
VOTE YES On #1 and #2 ...........Tuesday, August 7th
