THE TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! KANSAS CITY HOMELESS ADVOCATE RICHARD TRIPP EXPLAINS HIS OPPOSITION TO CITY HALL FOOD SHARING ORDINANCE CRACKDOWN!!!
Coming up this week in Kansas City is an IMPORTANT AND EPIC BATTLE which just might determine the fate of a great many po'folk on local streets who depend on the work of local do-gooders.
Again, before ANY OTHER MEDIA OUTLET IN KANSAS CITY . . . Our blog community and AWESOME TIPSTERS told us FIRST about a so-called "food sharing" ordinance proposed @ City Hall that really targets hobos and those who would help them out of the kindness of their heart.
Since our TKC BREAKING NEWS there has been a firestorm in the local media and this controversy has consumed a great many neighborhood volunteers.
KANSAS CITY HOMELESS ADVOCATE RICHARD TRIPP BREAKS DOWN THE CITY HALL FOOD SHARING ORDINANCE AND PROVIDES EXCLUSIVE BEHIND THE SCENES INFO ON THE REALITY OF THE CONTROVERSIAL LEGISLATION!!!
What we like about the testimony from Mr. Tripp is that he knows this subject better than anybody else AND not he's afraid to call out the City Manager's office, other KC nonprofits and City Hall politicos in his vocation to help the less fortunate in our community.
Check the testimony, we've highlighted some of the more EPIC passages:
Kansas City Homeless Advocate Richard Tripp Seyz...
"How do I make you know how important this ordnance their trying to pass this Thursday is so important? And how it will affect every Man, Woman,and child, In our community? We all will be effected, from the kid having a Kool-aid stand, to the ones having a tailgate get together at the ballpark, not to mention the 501c3s that try to feed the homeless.
"If it gets passed you will not be able to have a block party and be able to grill a hot dog and give to another person not even your family, without having to get a permit from the city."
"The main problem is the wording of the bill itself you really have to be a lawyer to understand it. How far or how many of your American Civil rites are you ready to give up? They say this is for the good of the people their worried about the food that's given out to the poor. Problem is they have nothing to prove that any poor person has gotten sick from the groups passing out food to the poor, The same can't be said for the shelter operators in our community, that the city manager will contract with to train people to feed the poor."
"Let me spell it out what's really going on with this ordinance It starts with MONEY, Greed, and Power, If you follow it back you'll find out that it started and is being pushed by a couple of not for profits that are tired of seeing money being spent on the homeless and it's not going in their projects."
"We all know how hard it is to make money nowadays, so they came up with a plan to make it harder on the little people, you see the little not for profits are mostly funded by donations and they do most of their work with volunteers, more money coming to them So if they could come up with a way to shut the little guy down then they would get the rewards of not only more funding but also those volunteers because they would be the only one that could stay in business. But how could they get buy with it? Can you figure that one out? Also If you're smart enough and follow the ordnance backwards, I'm sure you'll figure out the one pushing it in my opinion is the leading member of Restart INC.""
