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.

NO GO Bonds.

Look TK, Kansas City needs more infrastructure improvement. That's just a fact.

There are a few projects the Northland has been promised that will be good for all of the community. The only problem arises when we don't see how the majority of the money is going to be spent.

The Mayor and council would do well to start with more honesty about KCMO finances. Today's budget meeting would be a good place to start.

I bet Sly's base of non-critical thinking zombies, easily manipulated by emotional appeals and false story lines are all starry eyed with this sidewalks deal.

Trotting out even more phantom, non-existent polling? Sad!

Taxpayers will support bonds for infrastructure, ONLY IF they're confident that's what the money will actually be used for.

Remember Obama laughing about "I guess there weren't that many 'shovel-ready' jobs after all" after the trillion dollar infrastructure bill passed, but the majority of the money went toward his cronies?

President Trump said it at CPAC: "They have no sources. They are just making them up."

In other words, TKC.

^^^^ Typical libtard. Only liberals make up sources, never a blog such as TKC.

some people didn't get the memo.

folks are not in a mood to rubber stamp big spending by leaders they're skeptical of.

the huge bond issue raiding property taxes isn't a done deal.

brookside will show up to vote but other areas may not.

Ask any long-time Northlander how they view the City government. We are treated as the cash cows for the rest of the city projects. We were deliberately sliced up into council districts to dilute our political power. I haven't moved in 45 years, but I now live in District 4, having previously been assigned to Districts 1 then 2 as our population grew. We have no sidewalks, no curbs, and no amenities that the rest of our district enjoys south of the river. Promises have been made and ignored. That's why we don't support another bond issue. It has nothing to do with Trump.

Does anyone else remember a $125 million "Streets, Curbs and Sewers" bond issue that morphed into the "Cleaver/Glover Plan", destroying Brush Creek, tearing down 156 owner-occupied houses and a strip of crappy apartments to build a Costco plaza, and never fixed a single street, sewer or sidewalk? Is it a mere coincidence that $800 million is the same number last touted as the cost of a single terminal at KCI? Fool me once, shame on you, Fool me twice...

Retro ROCKER said...

800 million will not fix a thing you need 3 billion they will try to get that out of you in the next 10 year's

Retro ROCKER said...

You have paid billions,
Over the past few years and what is there to show for it crime crime crime

It's not just the Northland that hates the bonds.

So if it passes, can I get my 1% back?

"Right now you have the midtown corridor that Mayor Sly can rely upon, but that's about it"......don't be so hasty to count midtown to vote for this BS. It's not just the Northland that is against this; Hyde Park will turn out in droves to vote NO!!!

Midtown Westport Plaza there on to the Tax extortion plans most are on to the con,And in April the Air port issue

Paying these higher water bills is extortion from the city because they know we have to have water. How do the poor people pay for this high cost water? I am voting no on anything because when you vote yes the tax money is misappropriated. The city cut the police department and skeletonized the patrol officers division so there aren't many officers patrolling the neighborhoods .

Any bond or tax increase is dead in the water. Thankfully Rex has helped show the Missouri people the wasteful ways of the Kansas City regime. They collect millions in extra money with the 1% earnings tax and piss it away with pension increases and other huge raises that are unfair and uneven to workers.

The only way to fix this is to vote NO and to elect a Mayor that has a bursiness acumen. Trump will help the new Airport go to Johnson County and that should about do it for Democrats and marginalize Sly's legacy.

Vote NO and help Kansas City learn to live with what it has a set an example for its citizens to learn to live within its means.

KCMO should have never left Jackson County, too many square miles to service worth a shit.

Sly needs a "GoFundMe" account.

Send the Feds in on the water department extortion any one else would be convicted under R.E.C.O

The G.O. Bonds are basically a way for the city to build new roads for the Northland out of the budget and still address the crumbling infrastructure in the urban core. I think a better solution is to simply stop building roads in the Northland and use the money in our budget to repair the sidewalks in the urban core.

The solution is VOTE NO on GO! NO on GO! NOGO NOGO NOGO NOGO
