TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! POLICY BREAKFAST ASKS: IS IT TIME TO LEAVE KANSAS CITY?!?
Big meet-up tomorrow morning . . . Posting now so interested attendees can straighten out their plans . . .
And here's the news . . .
ABANDONING KANSAS CITY IS NOW AN OPEN QUESTION IN THE LOCAL POLITICAL DISCOURSE!!!
10 years ago this question would have seemed far too pessimistic and would not have merited serious consideration but now the leader of the KC Public Library is introducing the topic and the subject resonates beyond mere policy wonks.
While, the topic is focused mostly on finances . . .
TKC HAS ALWAYS ARGUED THAT THE IMPACT OF SO MUCH KANSAS CITY HOMICIDE AND VIOLENCE HAS DECIMATED KANSAS CITY'S ECONOMY AND SMALL BIZ COMMUNITY!!!
So, while this is a tax question, let's not forget there are a myriad of factors and trends that have made Kansas City inhospitable to families, new residents and business.
Up to and including
- The Toy Train Killing Kansas City Democracy
- No Quick Consequences For A Councilman's Sexting Scandal And Semi-Public Wang Display
- The Cowtown Resurgence Of Bow Ties By People Other Than Black Muslims And Pee-Wee Herman
Take a look at the notice . . . Decide for yourself . . .
Is It Time to Leave Kansas City?
Policy Breakfast: Is It Time to Leave Kansas City?
