TKC EXCLUSIVE: IS THE MOVE TO TAKE AWAY MAYOR SLY'S TOY TRAIN PART OF A KANSAS CITY ANTI-TAX TREND?!?!
TKC Note: Here's a missive from one of the few anti-tax groups in Midtown Kansas City that seems to be looking for a trend in opposition to Mayor Sly James . ..
DERAIL THE STREETCAR TRIPLE TAX
The Mayor appointed his Country Club Right of Way Advisory Committee for phase 2 of the Streetcar. The Mayor promised the attendees at the Wornall Baptist Church meeting on February 5 for the purpose of "Saving the Trolley Trail”; he would appoint this committee and asked the audience how many people they felt should be on it. 30 seemed to be the number suggested. The committee has 31 members, only 5 appear to be individuals dedicated to saving the Trolley Trail. Some of the other members don't even live in the proposed TDD area and definitely have hidden agendas.
Here we go again. Another hand picked Committee that will try and force the outcome.
Well, I believe the people of Kansas City are beginning to see right through his type of politics. They told the Mayor NO on taking over the Police Department. They told the Mayor NO on taking over the public schools. They told the Mayor NO when he wanted more power over the City Manager. They are telling the Mayor NO on trying to force a $1.5 Billion Dollar Single Terminal Airport down our throats and they will tell him, NO on the $500,000,000 phase 2 of the Streetcar.
This move creates unfair TAXES on Kansas City Voters. There are triple taxes in some cases. It is taxation without representation. We all need to get involved and take back our City so we can focus on what is really needed. No more "sexy" projects, lets do what the voters need and deserve. DERAIL THE STREETCAR TRIPLE TAX!
