TKC CAMPAIGN QUESTION: WILL GO BOND JUNK MAIL WIN KANSAS CITY VOTES???
Community opposition against more property taxes continues to gain momentum despite the lack of an organized, traditional campaign structure against $800-MILLION worth of increased taxes over the next 40 years.
Meanwhile . . .
GO BOND JUNK MAIL CLOGS MAILBOXES THROUGHOUT KANSAS CITY!!!
This effort costs a fortune and, once again, Mayor Sly James is the star of the tree-killing campaign. Meanwhile, in the digital era very few people do anything with their snail mail other than throw it away.
To be fair, that 5 second trip to the garbage can is actually a selling point of the brightest minds in Kansas City politics compared with TV and online advertising that more people attempt to block.
So we ask our blog community to make the judgement regarding this old school rhetorical tactic amid the upcoming low turnout election to start #TBT . . .
Is snail mail garbage more influential than growing civic resentment against rising Kansas City taxes and cost of living???
You decide . . .
