TKC FIRST!!! SHAWNEE SEYZ NO TO COMMUNITY CENTER PROPERTY TAX!!!



Special thanks to our JoCo denizens who sent us this tidbit . . .

BREAKING: Unofficial final results from the Election Office show that more than 72% of voters rejected the proposal to raise taxes to pay for the community center.

"The proposed $54 million Shawnee Community Center has been defeated. This was the largest mail in ONLY ballot in Johnson County history. And the first ever in Shawnee Ks."

Update and follow-up report:

KSHB: Shawnee voters reject tax increase for new community center

Appears Shawnee residents not as stupid when it comes to spending their tax money as those in Kansas City Mo are. Must be a huge shortage of special interest groups in Shawnee.

Or do you think maybe election results are more honestly done in JoCo than in Kansas City?

Apparently Shawnee voters did not want to provide a baby sitting service for the section ape kids. Maybe the voters did not like being lied to about the cost of the baby sitting building. The voters showed the Shawnee powers to be that they cannot pull a KCMO style fraud over on them. Shawnees powers to be got slapped down like Slie did on his pre-K tax.
