CALEB'S CHEVY COLORADO COMES UNDER FIRE BY JACKSON COUNTY LEGISLATURE!!!



Jackson County "picks up" the fighting where they left off and now a debate transportation of a different sort ensues . . .

Seemingly out of nowhere, the legislators discussed how the county paid for a truck driven by White's embattled chief of staff, Caleb Clifford, and suggested the county executive's office was trying to hide that purchase from the Legislature.

The county auditor prepared a memo titled "Where did the money come from to pay for Chief of Staff's $33,945 vehicle?"

The memo detailed six transfers of funds all under $10,000. Any transfer of money over that must be approved by the Legislature. The six transfers totaled $30,104 and came from the Health Fund, Anti-Drug Sales Tax Fund and the Special Road & Bridge Fund, among others.

"When you make six transfers to buy a truck, we don't get to see any of that," says County Legislature Chairman Scott Burnett of Kansas City.

"This circumvents the authority of the legislature," says Legislator Dennis Waits, who represents parts of Kansas City, Independence and Sugar Creek.

Clifford's truck is a 2016 Chevrolet Colorado bought from a dealer in Platte City. The truck is equipped with an off road package, aluminum wheels, satellite radio and cost $33,945, according a document provided by the county auditor.

There has always been a lot of debate over cars from the Exec's office but now the Legislature is getting serious about transit accountability in an election year.

Too bad it’s not a Lexus. KCMO deserves to be taken to the cleaners for voting such boobs into public office.

Notwithstanding the corruption and theft from taxpayers why wasn't this truck bought from a Jackson County dealer?

Where is the truck now that Caleb has lost his job

Off road package? That's a pretty elaborate truck for city streets, and they didn't even keep the money in Jackson county?

I’ve lived in a few states and several cities but damn KC is by far the most corrupt and has the dumbest voters. That’s saying a lot because I’ve lived in New Jersey. From Moody’s negatively rated go bonds that were rated a month before the vote and still passed, to the no RFP streetcar admin (see city auditor report), to crap like this. You deserve what you get. You could have such a better place to live if you held these so called public servants accountable. But you don’t.

Why aren't they driving Chevy Volts? Or a vehicle built by Ford in Kansas City, Mo.?

Remember this folks next time we have to vote for the combat tax, health tax or any other bullshit tax that the county can't do without. I would bet this is only the tip of the iceberg.

And rubes in Kansas City will continue to vote for any and every tax that comes along.

Who gets a $700.00 a month vehicle allowance? What the fuck is going on? City officials should be driving mid level generic vehicles from a motor pool. Where is the fucking FBI ? This is rub your nose in it theft and corruption. P.S. FBI can walk down 12th St to City Hall.

This is jackson county folks not kcmo, in kcmo sLIE’s riding around in a 80,000 suv with two kcmo police officers that’s costing us about 175,000 a year in payroll. Caleb’s truck at 33,000 is “chump change” as former mayor mark funkyhouser used to say

But his boss is a has-been Royals player which is all the credibility he needs in JACOMO and makes his actions above reproach.
