TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! POLLING & KANSAS CITY INSIDERS REVEAL: NORTHLAND HATES $800M GO BONDS!!!
The latest data floating around Kansas City civic circles creates panic as the April election moves closer.
To wit . . .
THE $800,000,000 GENERAL OBLIGATION BOND APPROVAL POLLS POORLY IN THE NORTHLAND!!!
There are a great many reasons for this but first and foremost we'd like to reemphasize that Mayor Sly James has NEVER been popular on the nice side of the bridge and even in his election victory he failed to win support.
Sadly, even his beautiful smile has yet to convince voters from this part of town . . .
Moreover, the latest OFF-RECORD polling data focuses on likely voters who have now been emboldened by the current political climate . . .
In regard to voter sentiment and with this new hint about bad numbers from across the bridge. One of the very best Kansas City Insiders offers insight . . .
"These are Trump voters in the Northland and they've shown their willingness to contradict conventional political wisdom. They're not going to support another tax on their homes for infrastructure promises from Mayor James. The Northland Trump voter is anti-tax and, really, anti-government. Convincing these folks will be the biggest challenge this campaign faces."
In more bad news for the "123 GO Bonds" campaign . . . Data about the Northland and East Side opposition to the bond plan reveals that another Kansas City anti-tax coalition is starting to form behind the scenes.
Insider insight on this trend . . .
"With Freedom, Inc. against the GO Bonds as well . . . Where does the GO BOND support come from??? Right now you have the midtown corridor that Mayor Sly can rely upon, but that's about it."
As usual, whenever a new tax is on the table . . . Mayor Sly usually relies upon low voter turnout to win the day and that trend might hold true despite increasing challenges to the tax.
But for now . . . We advise locals to ask Councilmembers about the data they've recently received showing Northland anti-tax dissent and see how willing they are to share it.
