CHECK KANSAS CITY TAX FIGHTERS READY TO DO BATTLE AGAINST GO BOND SUPPORTERS IN THE LAST DAYS BEFORE THE ELECTION!!!
Here's their battle roar against the newspaper and the local corporate elite for Monday morning . . .
TAXATION WITHOUT SPECIFICATION! Prepare to vote NOW!
Buckle up! Just a few days left before the election where voting taxpayers will be asked to write City Hall a check for $800,000,000 on the 1-2-3 Go Bond (TAX) election. If it passes, it will set up NEW ADDITIONAL TAXES to your already existing property and personal property taxes. The specific projects mentioned on the City’s schedule “A” are not binding… thus if we pass the 1-2-3-GO BOND TAX, we will add $800,000,000 to the city’s debt with no firm specifics as to where that money will go. Thus TAXATION WITHOUT SPECIFICATION! Also if it passes, we could free up all the taxes being collected currently to be used for any project. The current taxes do not go away. Remember this is an additional NEW TAX on your property and personal property. Your home, cars, boats, RV’s, trailers, motorcycles, etc. will all see additional taxes. These taxes will last for 40 years at least.
What would be wrong with presenting a complete package to the voters up front? Why does City Hall wait till the last minute and give us limited specifics on projects? Then they call us CAVE men when ask questions or challenge their position. The City Council was arguing about the $800,000,000 GO Bond Additional Tax Package the morning they voted to put it on the ballot. They did not have the wording worked out nor the specifics until just before time to vote.
Now in todays Sunday’s paper, we have two councilpersons, Justus and Shields, spending the money before we even vote. They are working on an ordinance to decide who gets sidewalks first but the ordinance will not be finalized before we vote on April 4th. We need too pass the 1-2-3- GO Bond Tax first before they can give us the details. "You have to vote on it to find out what’s in it” ! This is not the way to run a railroad.
CFRG says NO MORE.. We need to STOP TAXATION WITHOUT SPECIFICATION!! Is this the election we send City Hall a clear message.. If you want to increase our taxes, we need to know specifically what you are going to do with the money. What’s wrong with that? It’s our money! How upset will some voters be if some of the money for “buildings” as mentioned in question 3 on the 1-2-3 GO Bond Tax goes to the proposed downtown hotel?
Today the Kansas City Star, our main stream media outlet, endorses the NEW TAX questions 1-2-3-4 on the ballot. However they do issue caveats “Some have called for City Officials to release a more specific set of proposals and a detailed timetable.” (did not happen) “The plan is not perfect but it deserves to pass” and “We’re concerned that the project list lacks details and oversight of the money seems loose.” What kind of an endorsement is that? The Star is encouraging "TAXATION WITHOUT SPECIFICATION”. Let’s stop it now! Does anyone ever think of curtailing spending and living within our budget??
Prepare now to VOTE on Tuesday, April 4th. Grab your friends and neighbors, mom, dad, grandparents, etc. If this is a low turnout, we need for that turn out to be a majority of PATRIOTS ready to stand up and tell City Hall
NO MORE TAXATION WITHOUT SPECIFICATION!
