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.
