TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY OUTRAGE OVER NEW AIRPORT HYPE E-MAIL BLAST!!! DID CITY MANAGER TROY SCHULTE CROSS THE LINE WITH THIS ELECTION NOTE TO EMPLOYEES???
Internets controversy over online electioneering in favor of the New Airport Question #1 now confronts City Manager Troy Schulte.
First word of this hot mess started among our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY . . .
"City Manager Troy Schulte sent out an email telling all 4400 city employees should vote and make sure their family members vote for the airport. They even printed it off and showed me. Is this coercion or a threat???"
Another KICK-ASS observation:
"Looks an awful lot like electioneering with city $$'s...."
The common defense of these e-mails is that there is no direct call to action . . .
However, the City Manager repeats all of the campaign talking points from "Better KCI" effort despite intense debate over these talking points by voters across KCMO . . .

DID THE CITY MANAGER CROSS THE LINE AND ENGAGE IN CITY HALL ELECTIONEERING?!?!

Also, it's not nice when a public official starts giving de facto orders to workers and their families . . .
City Manager Troy Schulte: "If all 4,400 City employees turned out to vote and brought just one other person with them, the outcome of this election would be determined by just the vote of City employees!"
