If KCMO and KCPS claimed their unclaimed money there would be no need for Slie's pre-K tax.

How many new police officers could be on the streets if the KCPD didn't have "145 year" commemorative badges? These type of things don't come cheap and who ever has heard of commemorating 145 years? It is usually just for every 50 years past the first 100 years something is done (150, 200, 250 etc). Another waste of taxpayer money.
