TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY HOUSING TRUST FUND IS A SCAM CRAFTED BY DESPERATE COUNCIL CANDIDATES RUNNING FOR MAYOR!!!
After Kansas City council members pushed through more subsidy for corporate building downtown and cash for office space biz parking, they quickly pivoted to far more proletarian conversations.
A measure advanced by the housing committee establishes a $75 million Kansas City Housing Trust Fund to encourage the construction or rehabilitation of rental housing for low-income residents.
The only problem. There's no funding source, no organizational structure, no plan . . . Just a nice thought that needs $75-MILLION worth of taxpayer cash.
Council dude Quinton Lucas says it's "a very big deal."
More to the point . . .
THE KANSAS CITY CONVERSATION ABOUT AFFORDABLE HOUSING IS NOTHING MORE THAN A RUSE FOR COUNCIL TO ESPOUSE SILLY TALKING POINTS!!!
The best line goes to Council lady Canady . . .
During discussion she referenced a conversation that happened earlier Wednesday, about the city’s "obligation" to fund a parking garage for a planned office tower downtown.
“We’re funding housing for cars and not people,” Canady said.
That's actually correct but notice that the plans for catering to the driving biz class are a lot more detailed than this scheme mostly crafted to win hearts, minds and votes.
