Kansas City Tax Fighters Continue To Hold Politicos Accountable After GO Bond Defeat
Follow-up and a continued call for accountability . . .
The Election is over ... We lost!
CFRG and Fellow Patriots,
The election is over and we lost. It appears we had about 25,000 voters but they got 35,000 voters. CFRG spent $1000, they spent $1,000,000. We spent .04 cents per vote: they spent $28.50 per vote. We believe this will be the wave of the future. Money will buy elections and without money it will be difficult to compete. CFRG wants to thank all of you who contributed time, effort and money to the campaign. Now it's time to move on.
At the beginning of the campaign we asked City Hall to provide us with a "MEASURABLE /MEANINGFUL" list of projects they plan to spend the $800,000,000 we just gave them on. We also told them we did not want "TAXATION WITHOUT SPECIFICATION". They have provided "schedule A" a non-binding list of projects. Please mark your calendars on June 1st, 2018 to ask City Hall for a spending report on the projects.
It is time now to ask Jermaine Reed (816-513-6513, Jermaine.Reed@kcmo.org) and Quinton Lucas (816-513-6511, Quinton.Lucas@kcmo.org) how they have spent the $7,000,000 the Council gave them for 18th and Vine about a year ago. They asked for $21,000,000 but had it reduced to $7,000,000 and it is time for an accounting. This is what needs to be done if we are to expect accountability for our money. Do your part and ask for an accounting. Perhaps they will come forward and make a report on their own which would be nice. An open and transparent City Hall is what we should expect. It's our money!
Thanks to all of you for your support,
