TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! THERE WILL BE A POLITICAL PRICE TAG FOR UPCOMING JACKSON COUNTY LAYOFFS!!!
Yesterday, it was all doom and gloom at The Jackson County Courthouse.
To wit . . .
EXPECT MORE JACKSON COUNTY LAYOFFS THANKS TO MISSOURI AUSTERITY MEASURES!!!
For years now Jackson County has been cutting workers but this latest round of layoffs seems even more serious . . . Probably because bigger salaries and top level jobs will be at stake.
In yesterday's legislative session Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders noted that 35 to 40 jobs were going to be cut by the start of the New Year. Even JaxCo Prosecutor "Mean" Jean Peters-Baker talked about realigning programs to meet with budget demands.
All things considered, it's going to be a blood bath among County Workers once again.
And that's when we start playing the blame game.
Kansas City insiders warn . . .
"The County Executive usually takes the heat for layoffs," A Kansas City Insider said. "If these layoffs aren't strategic then we're talking about a ripple effect that will circulate and create a lot of dissatisfaction among voters and residents."
So . . . It seems as if the upcoming and ongoing GREAT RECESSION is part of the reason the CURSE OF THE JAXCO THIRD TERM is more than just a myth . . . It's becoming part local political reality for County Executive Mike Sanders.
DEVELOPING . . .
