TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! COUNCIL CANDIDATES VIOLATE ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS IN UPCOMING APRIL 2ND KCMO ELECTION!!!
Once again our blog community starts an IMPORTANT STORY CONCERNING KANSAS CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATES AND THEIR TAX TROUBLES.
A sad situation . . .
HALF THE CANDIDATES IN KANSAS CITY 3RD DISTRICT OWE BACK TAXES!!!
We'll have more on this sordid topic of coin but for now this narrative and call out is a PERFECT preview and the very best call to action we've seen so far this election cycle.
Unqualified Candidates on April 2 Kansas City Council Ballot
The requirements to run for mayor and city council are that candidates for mayor and city council are stated in the city charter. A candidate must be at least 25 years old, qualified city voters, residents of the city for five years and of their district for six months, and have paid city and county taxes for two years before election.
We have multiple people who are candidates for the city council who are in violation of the eligibility requirements. How can half of the candidates in one city council district race and other candidates be on the ballot, if they are not current with their city and county taxes for the two year period prior to the election? Some of the candidates are more than two years delinquent with their taxes.
Why were these individuals not checked to ensure they were current on their taxes by the Kansas City Board of Elections or City Hall prior to the ballot being finalized or asked to bring a copy of their paid tax receipts when they were filing for office???
The candidates signed an affidavit stating that they were current on their taxes but yet many are not. Is it a crime to make a false statement on an affidavit?
Four years ago a candidate was found not to be qualified to be on the ballot and votes for that candidate were not counted.
Should votes for these candidates be counted, if they are not qualified to be on the ballot according to the requirements set forth by the city? Does anybody care that we have individuals on the ballot to lead our city who are delinquent in taxes and not qualified to run for office.
How can our city have a fair and honest election, if multiple candidates are not qualified to even be on the ballot due to not meeting requirements to run for office?
Our city must have honest, fair and impartial elections by those who are qualified to serve and lead our city.
