TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN FOR MORE TAXES!!!
Despite recent encouraging gains in the job market, there remains a great deal of uncertainty regarding the economy . . .
Moreover, closer to home Kansas City taxpayer have suffered one tax break after the next thanks to the current administration.
Accordingly . . .
CHECK OUT THE LATEST TAX ASK FROM KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY!!!
We're offering a FIRST LOOK PEEK at the junk mail that's currently papering this town.
Critics of the mayor offered a fast and furious reaction to the document:
"Mayor Sly James has sent out a mailer asking you to vote YES on Question #1 on the April 3rd ballot. This will allow City Hall to raise another 1% on all retail sales for the next twenty years (approximately $1,400,000,000)! This tax should have been replaced by the $800,000,000 GO bond."
Sadly, it did not and the rate of local taxes continues to grow.
The arguments for this tax increase follow similar vague language and empty promises with only THE DESPERATELY NEEDED repair of the Buck O'Neil Bridge pushed as a specific proposal.
Meanwhile, it has been about a year and locals are still waiting on construction of the doggie shelter that was promised but still not delivered.
And so . . .
IS THIS TAX INCREASE DOUBLE DOWN FAIR TO KANSAS CITY RESIDENTS OR DOES IT REPRESENT BAD PLANNING FROM CITY HALL???
You decide . . .
