LMC Backs Jackson County Question 1
Kansas City, Mo. - The Labor-Management Council of Greater Kansas City has endorsed Jackson County Question 1 on the Nov. 5 ballot. Question 1 would levy a one-half cent sales tax to fund an Institute for Translational Medicine, which would convert basic research into health care cures.
“This investment by Jackson County can convert basic research being done at our hospitals, schools and at Stowers into jobs and cures for our citizens” said Bob Jacobi, LMC executive director. “This will also help keep and attract talented workers who are crucial to economic growth. And it’s an example of public-private partnerships that enhance the community.”
The Labor-Management Council of Greater Kansas City is a nonprofit association based at Rockhurst University. Comprised of more than 80 member organizations, the LMC’s mission is to enhance collaboration by solidifying trust and communication between labor and management in the community.
