TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! COURTHOUSE INSIDER: JACKSON COUNTY PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENT MESS WILL MAKE OR BREAK EXEC MIKE SANDERS!!!
Jackson County political consequences for the current drama over property taxes continue to mount.
Let's not forget that AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS broke this story.
The latest follow-up is that the hot mess is much bigger than anticipated AND could result in a tragic revenue shortfall.
But this deal gets even more interesting.
To wit . . .
CHECK THIS INSIGHT FROM A KICK-ASS INSIDER REVEALING THE POLITICAL IMPLICATIONS FOR PROPERTY TAX DRAMA ON THE CAREER OF JACKSON COUNTY EXECUTIVE MIKE SANDERS!!!
Here's the word:
"Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders is doing something almost no public official would do and that is hire an outside consultant and then let them go public with a rather scathing review of his own government.
"Most politicians hire an outside consultant who comes in with layer upon layer of tissue paper to cover their ass.
"County Executive Sanders is either crazy or a damn good public official. Transparency is not what elected officials are all about when there is a controversy within their government.
"Property assessment controversies have brought down more than one Jackson County Executive, the most notable was Dale Baumgardner who lost his re-election to Bill Waris in the 1980's over a similar issue. He tried to hide and cover up the failings of his subordinates and paid the price."
In this case, the recent political perspective is apropos and reminds us how quickly public perception can change when money disputes arise.
