TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY TAXPAYER BILL OF RIGHTS BEGS THE QUESTION: WHAT CAN OUR TKC BLOG COMMUNITY ADD TO THE LIST?!?!
Kansas City Mayor Sly James has raised taxes on this town more than half a dozen times and new levies keep arising with every election.
However, this blog is FIRST to note a sad bit of local political pandering going into election week . . .
CELEBRATE AN UPCOMING "KANSAS CITY TAXPAYER BILL OR RIGHTS" RESOLUTION!!!
Resolution #140540 is so lame that NOBODY wanted to put their name on it as a sponsor . . . Which kinda contradicts the whole point of the thing.
Here's the upcoming list of wishful thinking @ 12th & Oak . . .
KANSAS CITY TAXPAYER BILL OF RIGHTS
That the City Council hereby adopts a City of Kansas City Taxpayer Bill of Rights which includes:
1. The Right to Be Informed
2. The Right to Quality Service
3. The Right to Pay No More than the Correct Amount Due
4. The Right to Appeal the City's Decision Pursuant to Law
5. The Right to Finality
6. The Right to Confidentiality as Required by Law or Ordinance
7. The Right to Retain Representation
8. The Right to a Fair and Just Tax System
Not sure, but I'm guessing that the e-tax violates half of these items.
Now, 8 is an odd number and not nearly enough for this list. Accordingly . . .
PLEASE ADD A FEW MORE SUGGESTIONS TO THIS KANSAS CITY TAXPAYER BILL OF RIGHTS THAT MIGHT HELP MAYOR SLY AND COUNCIL!!!
Some bloggy recommendations might be important if only because this move reveals that they've lost touch with reality inside Council Chambers if ANYBODY believes this bit of happy talk will convince voters and taxpayers who have been the victims of constant deception.
