TKC TREND SPOTTING!!! LIKE IT OR NOT: KANSAS CITY LAW FIRMS LOVE THE JACKSON COUNTY HEALTH RESEARCH TAX!!!
Kansas City's top law firms are donating some pretty decent chunks of change to the Jackson County Health Research effort . . .
We've already reported that Polsinelli donated $10K
Husch Blackwell kicked in $10K as well
Wagstaff & Cartmell offered $10K in what seems like an attempt to move into the ranks of bigger, better law practices
And recently . . . Stinson Morrison Hecker checked in with a paltry $7,500.
They can be forgiven if only because they were recently bought out . . .
Over lunch, one of you d-bags should tell Shook, Hardy & Bacon that they're slipping . . .
Anyhoo . . .
THE LOCAL LAWYER CLASS IN LOVE WITH MORE TAXES FOR JACKSON COUNTY IS SIGNIFICANT IF ONLY BECAUSE WHAT PASSES FOR THIS TOWN'S INTELLIGENTSIA SEEMS TO HAVE RULED FOR HEALTHCARE ECO-DEVO EFFORT!!!
Of course it's not a done deal and it's also worth noting that almost all of these folks vote in the Golden Ghetto or Platte County . . . Still . . . Big money lawyers loving more taxes for lowly Jackson County broke-ass denizens is a trend worth noticing.
P.S. - William C. Gautreaux, Prez of Inergy midstream kicked in $10k yesterday too . . .
