TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! QUESTION 3 STILL LEADS GO BOND PACK!!!
Recently a bit of survey data confirmed what KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS already reported back in January . . . Question 3 is the most popular of all the GO Bond ballot issues.
The rest of the numbers we've seen from have been garbage and basically just confirm the worldview of the same dudes who thought Sen. Ted Cruz was gonna be Prez.
Fact is, the Animal Shelter and question 3 are popular because they're one of the few initiatives that have longstanding grassroots support. We'll have more on this later but for now . . .
Here are the most important supporting Question 3 arguments from animal lovers . . .
- This will be the first animal shelter ever built by Kansas City, MO. The current facility was built in the 1970’s and was originally a warehouse for Arrowhead Stadium construction, converted into an animal shelter at a later date.
- The new shelter would feature more housing for animals, separate adoptions and admissions areas, an education and training center, etc.
- This would be a public/private partnership with the City where a portion of the new shelter would be paid for by the Bond and the rest would be through private donations.
Still . . .
As much as we love doggies we can only hope that Question 3 supporters will be a bit stingy with their votes and turn Question 1 and 2 away given that these high tax efforts actually put their far more noble aims in jeopardy.
Nevertheless, here's a talking point that animal shelter supporters have overlooked amid a great deal of anti-tax push back...
QUESTION 3 IS THE ONLY GO BOND INITIATIVE WITH BINDING BALLOT LANGUAGE MANDATING THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE ANIMAL SHELTER!!! EVERYTHING ELSE IS JUST A BLANK CHECK!!!
A quick word from one of the many doggie lovers backing this effort . . .
"Thankfully, we're not using the same fuzzy math as Question 1 and 2. The cost of the shelter is minimal and will not be compounded over time. We're talking about a couple of bucks from homeowners for a facility that will help improve the city and further our reputation as part of the animal health corridor in the Midwest."
Reality . . . In a low turnout election, the most dedicated voters usually win. Accordingly, we respect Brent Toellner and his army of white women who have been working on this thing for years.
In fairness, whilst we explain the politics and polling FIRST and better than anybody in Kansas City. Here's an EPIC local blogger screed that offers some heartfelt advocacy for Question 3:
