TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! NORTHLAND VOTERS THREATEN TO LEAD KANSAS CITY TAXPAYER REVOLT AGAINST GO BONDS AND APRIL 4TH POLITICS!!!



More than the impact of Prez Trump, stormy weather, general discontent or any other factor, the upcoming April 4th vote is about the divergent interests of Kansas City communities and how tax-weary residents throughout this town respond to hopeful rhetoric asking them to open their pocket books one more time.

To wit . . .

WIDESPREAD OPPOSITION TO MAYOR SLY'S TAX AND SPEND AGENDA FROM THE KANSAS CITY NORTHLAND LEADS "NO" VOTE SENTIMENT!!!

Point of fact that everybody wants to ignore . . . Mayor Sly has never been that popular across the bridge even when he first ran for office.



His reelection saw voters across the bridge skip the polls altogether AND a litany of promises about Northland infrastructure have failed to move the dial among these frustrated residents despite "The Heavies" attempting to sell the community on more construction jobs.

Let's break it down . . .

Questions 1-2-3 . . . We've already examined polling that suggests districts 1 & 2 are widely opposed to this $800-million package and neither the Mayor not a coalition of African-American council members will change their mind. This is exceptionally troubling given that MOST urban core leaders also don't believe GO Bond promises and several groups have failed to endorse or ignored the ballot questions. Polling tells us otherwise but the only bright spot here is that doggies and cute pets have a soft spot in the hearts of even the most angry electorate.

Question 4: Here's where neighborhood interests conflict . . . The Northland paying for East Side development is tantamount to sacrilege. Better voter turnout across the bridge coupled with demographic and political differences (GOP vs. Democratic Party) put this measure at risk and even supporters claim its "an uphill battle" amid the low turnout contest.

Question 5: A reality check for so many midtown Kansas City weed advocates . . . A sample of community leader input from both the Northland and the East side suggest that marijuana reform will be a tough sell tomorrow despite a widespread progressive movement to abandon the drug war. Connecting narcotics with higher crime might not always be correct but it's a lingering perception in the minds of voters.

Nevertheless . . .



THIS KANSAS CITY APRIL 4TH ELECTION IS ABOUT MONEY AND THE GROWING NORTHLAND TAX BASE LOOKS TO BE THE LAST REFUGE OF FISCAL CONSERVATISM AMID RAMPANT CITY HALL SPENDING!!!

Moreover, this time around the constant outcry from this group about "sending their money across the bridge" seems to be resonating more loudly among a litany of complaints from throughout Kansas City mostly focused on a lack of trust in City Hall.

the largest and fastest growing community in kc is going to cut Sly's purse strings or put him on a diet?

That's not bad news.

We, the people of Kansas City ALREADY voted for infrastructure repairs and upgrades, so why the heck is it being voted on again? Please don't tell me that our elected City Council and Department heads didn't do what they said they were going to do!(Heavy Sarcasm)

Why does Starlight get money from the GO Bonds, when they get a large amount of PIAC money each year?

Why has the Obese Bowtie given Swope Park Land to Sporting KC and not gotten anything in return, except the city mows and maintains the Soccer Village at a cost to the City.

Why is more of Swope Park being given to Pet Project? I know the shelter needs to be updated and replaced, but why give up Swope Park Land once again? It's not really central, so why does Slie lie about that?

Who gave the Obese Bowtie so much money for all the TV ads and bright colorful mailers that clog our mailboxes with his lies?

The numbers just do not add up for the go bonds. Stating sidewalks will be repaired by the city is a carrot for inner city voters to buy the phony rhetoric of the bonds.

Oh I wish the Northland would exercise the power to shut down all those Pie-In-The-Sky ideas flooding our mailboxes. Unfortunately, the City Hall gerrymandering has sliced and diced the Northland into 3 separate districts, with a tiny slice going to Dist. #4. This district lies mostly SOUTH of the River. They did that to dilute our voting power.

Absolutely agree here, the sheer amount junk mail has been unbelievable and we need to start think about limiting it for the sake of the environment. Very sad that a small forest had to die for this election.

The whole metro, in fact the entire region, suffers from the continuous clown show that is KCMO city government.
And no one suffers more than the KCMO residents and businesses north of the river who not only have to constantly be embarrassed by the amateur and buffoonish behavior of the folks at 12th and Oak, but are even forced to PAY FOR IT.
A sucking chest wound on the entire area.

Did you see the 75-bus convoy of black voters shipped in from St. Louis? It's here!

^^^ Pure fantasy. There is no need to ship anybody in, there are enough votes here to pass it.

As for the Northland, a lot of their dislike of Sly James is racism pure and simple.

^ of course, anyone who opposes a black person is a racist. Talk about fantasy!

Sly is a liar and a bully. That statement has nothing to do with my racial conclusions. His continual Lying and arrogant attitude may have a lot to do with his racial conclusions.
