This just in!
The husband of Councilwoman Lisa Bunnell just called me a racist and fear mongerer, on ShawneeMissionPost.com, Jay Senter's online paper that abhors controversy.

Posting here in case his ad hominem attack on me, and possible illegal electioneering and my response are deleted from that site. Only subscribers can comment.

Are you really asking why she didn't report on your racist, fear-mongering screed? Perhaps she could have included your rumination on "self-entitled poor people." She was doing you a favor. Do you really think the city is going to let unsupervised minors run around the facility all day every day causing trouble? Get a grip.

There are decent, thoughtful arguments against this project. You aren't making any of them.

tracy thomas Nick Bunnell • a few seconds ago
Dear Mr.Bunnell, I don't need to be Mansplained or scolded. I don't need to "get a grip". And I don't need any favors from reporters who have not done the research that I have, with Finance Director, City Atty, Secretary of State, Ks. State Senator, and the marketing directors of cities and retailers suffering from bullying by gangs of unsupervised youth, as well as shoplifting that is also rampant and well documented.

I see you are married to Ward 3's newly appointed Councilwoman, Lisa Bunnell. (not the man who received 1700 votes from voters in the previous city elections.) should you be making such comments? Are you electioneering?

I believe your ad hominem attacks on me, calling me a racist and fear mongerer are clearly a violation of SMPost guidelines. My considerable experience supporting civil rights since 1968 speak for themselves.

Do I believe the city will not have the funds and on-site off duty cops to manage this rec center, if they have an incident? No.

SMP (Shawnee Mission Post deleted both my post as "spam???" and the Councilwoman's husband's, as "violation of ad hominem attack rules".
But he claims to want all facts presented before public vote, so I reached out, with list of how to do that. Will eliminate confusion, non-transparency and the controversy over inserting a speculative memo, signed by Election Commissioner/former TV evangelist Ronnie Metsker, about a "maybe" mill levy increase that does not include interest on $38 million, which is "a big number".

Thank God for TKC. Where he does not censor.

Well, I'm sorry your original post was deleted since we are lacking context now. But that's okay. The meeting was recorded and posted on the city's website, as you know. Anyone interested can listen to your comments and decide for themselves.

Also, as a registered voter in Shawnee, I am as entitled to speak as you are. It doesn't matter that my wife is on the council. I speak only for myself.

I want the voters to have all of the information prior to the May ballot, but it should be based on facts. Take care.

Nick, your comments, too, were deleted. And I believe your comments are what led to mine being deleted as well. We were both kicked off, leaving the readers going, "huh"? Thanks alot, dude. Hard to get the word out with a newspaper that does not like controversy!

All comments appear intact on www.tonyskansascity.com, rh column, Top Stories. As well as on No More Taxes Shawnee on FB.

OK, in your last graph, you state, sincerely I believe--that you want the voter to have all of the information prior to the May ballot. I agree.

So will you please ask your wife, the new Ward 3 Councilwoman, Lisa Bunnell (who replaced the accused sex predator teacher Justin Adrian who resigned) to immediately ask the City Manager, City Attorney, and Council to amend the ballot wording. Give the facts!
Say what it is, and what it is not.
This will eliminate the need for any "inserts" or never before allowed memo/speculations/illustrations/and non-binding verbiage-- by an Election commissioner, or the Mayor, or anyone else.

1. That the property tax increase has no sunset.
2. And cannot be repurposed in the future, once the GO bonds are paid off, for any new or different project. For Parks and Rec or any other department.
3. That $38 million does not contain the interest that will be paid to bond holders/investors since that will not be known until the bonds are sold.
4. That IF the mill levy is set, in July at 2.919 mills, to purchase a proposed 20 year bond, that current projections do not forecast this center ever being self sustaining.
5. The council maintains that it alone has the right to approve mill levy increases, not the public. As a currently allowable exception to the 2017 Ks. Tax Lid Bill.
6. If the council determines each year that it will require a higher mill levy than the guesstimate of 2.919 mills per year for building and maintaining operation of this one community center, at 61st and Woodland and nowhere else, Council reserves the right to raise that subsection of the mill levy, without another public vote...earmarked only to this specific project.
7. The Council maintains the option, however, of dipping into the General Fund as needed, possibly affecting funds for police and fire and other necessities.
8. This proposal calls for the City to hire and provide ongoing employee benefits to 17 new FT employees of Parks and Recreation.
9. There are no provisions herein for off duty police officers or the payment thereof from this or any other known source.
