DISAGREEMENT WITH DAVE HELLING AND THE KANSAS CITY STREETCAR FIGHT!!!
Kansas City Star newsie Dave Helling is doing his best to take the steam out of the lawsuit against the streetcar.
However . . .
TAKE A LOOK AT EXCLUSIVE TALKBACK WHICH CLAIMS THAT DAVE HELLING JUST DOESN'T GET THE LEGAL ACTION AGAINST KANSAS CITY'S TOY TRAIN!!!
Here's the money quote:
"Dave Helling is missing the point. The property tax part is not a tax, it is a special assessment. Those are always voted on by property owners except this time. And the sales tax part of the suit is about the stacking of multiple transportation taxes on each other."
And here's why TKC is important . . . Not so long ago, there was no disagreeing with Star columnists when they made their pronouncements regarding civic issues but NOW there's an alternative to the monopoly on the local discourse and corporate media mostly based in JoCo supporting every single tax in Kansas City Proper.
