TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE SMACKED DOWN IN FIRST ROUND OF COMBAT TAX FIGHT!!!
The Exec claimed the actions of the Legislature were "unlawful" and at now it seems that he's the one on the wrong side of the law.
Just a quick quote to remind us where were stand this evening . . .
Today's ruling on the courthouse debacle:
"A judge has issued an order temporarily banning Jackson County Executive Frank White and others in his administration from interfering in the management of the county-wide anti-drug and anti-violence agency known as COMBAT."
This preliminary ruling doesn't bode well for the upcoming legal argument.
Moreover . . .
Jackson County Insiders don't believe Exec White's arguments will meet with much success in the future.
Quick word from the perspective of insiders who support the legislature:
"There's no way a judge is going to give COMBAT back to him. In the meantime, he's just spending taxpayer money on a losing fight and a remedial lesson in County government."
The worst part . . .
Exec White's office now confronts legal push back over transferring funds to pay employee salaries - A practice alleged by Legislators in open session.
