Mayor Sly And Dead Tree Media Argues For Regressive Kansas City Pre-K Sales Tax

A newspaper screed backs up the lame duck rhetoric as well. Take a look:

Mayor Sly James makes the case for his pre-K sales tax plan | The Kansas City Star

There's no "intensity" between Mayor Sly James and Kansas City Public Schools Superintendent Mark Bedell over the mayor's pre-K plan, James says. He wants a sales tax increase to pay for his proposal.

They already have pre k programs. We are over taxed. This school system isn’t even accredited despite billions and billions of dollars in taxes and federal aid. Many of you are unaware of the kcmo school case just a few years ago in which billions in taxes were imposed and look where we are now. Please vote NO for more taxes.

So even the KCPS superintendent is against the Pre-k sales tax. Probably because he knows most of it would somehow end up in developer pockets. Sly is a liar and a crooked politician.

Mayor Bullhorn looking to conjure up one last slush fund. Aren't there ambulances to chase?

"Billions and billions of dollars just a few years ago" A few years ago meaning 1985? The district has a lot of work to do but its residents pay the least out of every district in the area. Get what you pay for.

Sly should have thought of this before he gave all that TIF money away.
Are taxes the only solutions city hall can think of?

The KCPS could start education as soon as kids are born and someday those kids would still be illiterate when they graduate.

The city has no business sticking its nose in the operation of the school district.
This is just another slush fund for Slie to use for the developers and he knows it.
When the school district does not trust the handling of the money you know something is wrong.
