KCMO PRE-K SALES TAX DEFEATED!!!
Bright side for tonight's vote and a sign that Kansas City taxpayers from across the spectrum of demographic and partisan lines are capable of working together in order to REJECT a bad idea.
Schools & teachers hated this plan.
Neighborhoods & tax fighters united in their opposition.
Most of the politicos running for office also opposed this effort for fear of angering their constituents.
Check the links:
KCUR: Kansas City Voters Listen To School Superintendents, Rejecting Pre-K Sales Tax
KSHB: Voters turn down KCMO pre-K sales tax
KMBC: Kansas City voters overwhelmingly rejected a call to raise the sales tax for citywide pre-K education.
Before you start celebrating, remember there's a $500-MILLION secretive school bond issue on deck and a great deal of the opposition tonight didn't want to risk the bigger cash request coming before voters which TKC reported FIRST.
