SHOCK!!! JACKSON COUNTY INSIDERS FEAR THAT QUESTION 1 DEFEAT WILL EARN EXEC MIKE SANDERS AN ELECTION CHALLENGE!!!



For the record, it's important to note that Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders has never faced a real challenger in career.

His greatest threat came from Doc. Wheeler well past the former Mayor's time. Also, Doc Wheeler is now quasi-homeless.

Accordingly . . .

JACKSON COUNTY INSIDERS SAY THAT IF QUESTION 1 GOES DOWN IN FLAMES: A CHALLENGE TO THE COUNTY EXECUTIVE BECOMES A POSSIBILITY!!!

The money quote:

"Think about, the property tax issue is enough to power a campaign, now there's this translational research question that is unpopular in a lot of neighborhoods. Mike doesn't make a lot of mistakes but supporting a controversial sales tax right before election time is a big one and it could represent a real opportunity for a challenger to arise."

In fairness, Mike Sanders is considered to be so crafty that he wins over campaign competition before the contests even start.

Still . . . Only a staunch supporter or a clueless Dead Tree Media dude would deny that there is consequence to losing more than a million bucks from the Civic Council and some of the most elite denizens of Kansas City politics.

Developing . . .

Don't run against him TKC.

Don't even think about it.

Why doesn't Sanders and most of the rest of the zeros on the Jackson County Legislature try to spend just a little of their time actually doing their jobs, like providing some oversight of assessing property, running a jail, maintaining county roads and bridges, a decently run court system, and the few other responsibiilities that county government actually has?
Instead, that is, of cheerleading for train systems, medical research, and what they're all going to run for next?
County government has pretty much NOTHING to offer the people who actually live here and pay taxes.

Vote No on 1. Also, everyone of these idiots will have a challenger next time they are up. Guaranteed.

well if the civic council wants him out for blowing their gamble on sneaking this by the voters, perhaps the organizations that are mad at him for getting it on the ballot in the first place will run someone who thinks the goal of local governments should be to provide basic services economically and transparently.

Not only is Question 1 really questionable, taxpayers are paying for a county-wide election for one question.

I'm sure with some vocational training he will be able to get a real job.

Mike couldn't make it without sucking on the government tit. Try hanging up a shingle for your law practice, Mike - but I doubt you could make it on your own.
