TKC MUST SEE!!! SHAWNEE PROPERTY TAX OPPOSITION MOVIE DEBUTS!!!
Cutesy video low-tax advocacy from one of our favorite creators has been turning a few heads this morning.
Here's the narrative . . .
Vote NO - Shawnee Property Tax Increase
Voters in Shawnee, Kansas should vote NO on the proposed property tax increase to pay for a new community center. There are several reasons why:
1. Property taxes should be used for NEEDS. A new community center would be nice, but it's not a need. Real needs include police, fire, roads, sidewalks, infrastructure, and public schools.
2. As proposed, the property tax would be increased for a minimum of 20 years AND YET residents would still have to pay fees to use to the new center. This is a backwards business model - the center should pay for itself within a few years.
3. All the services that the new community center would provide are already being sufficiently met by private businesses in and around Shawnee (pools, gyms, meeting spaces, etc), without any taxpayer subsidy. There is genuinely no real need for a new community center in Shawnee.
