JACKSON COUNTY PROPERTY TAX HOT MESS UPDATE: EXEC FRANK WHITE FACES MORE PROTEST AND PUSH BACK!!!



The debate over disproportionate increases in Jackson County property taxes continues to heat up as we approach the 4th of July.

So far . . .

The Jackson County Legislature sent word that they want the Exec to nullify the current spate of increases.

First On TKC, Exec Frank White Responded With A Refusal And Accusations Against His Colleagues Along With Defense Of His Appointee.

Let's not forget that more than 20K homeowners have appealed these appraisals already.

Moreover . . .

ORGANIZERS PLAN CONTINUED JACKSON COUNTY PROPERTY TAX PROTEST THIS WEEK!!!

Given that the 4th of July holiday marks an Independence from onerous taxation without representation . . . The push back against the hikes isn't just apropos but also serves as part of a proud tradition of resistance to royalty, figureheads and stubborn rulers.

Developing . . .

protests and more questions are great but I think it might be time for Jeff city to weigh in on exactly the law states when we talk about these complaints and rolling back the current assessments.

This is totally predictable in this, as it has been in other, Democrat/Black run cities. Taxes - poor city services - laying off cops - corruption - city officials off to jail - cronyism - an overemphasis on non existent "Racial Issues", diversion of funds to stupid, non performing "Black" initiatives' - fucked up schools - the "It's all whitey's fault trope" - Detroit, Baltimore, Birmingham, St Louis..., why is anyone shocked?

I hate when the bigots get on here and want to make this shit about race or one specific political party or the other. You're an idiot if you think corruption and incompetent are limited to one race or party.

Worse, you idiocy lets Frank White and Darryl Forte deflect legitimate criticism and claim racism.

^^^^^

But 6:07 It most of the time is about race and party. This time maybe not, but it's people like Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama that has started all of the race and party issues.

I don't think property taxes has a chance, you will need way more than 20k people to fight it and it was home owners who racked this up by paying way more than houses were worth. My house appraised for 260K in Hyde Park and I sold it for over 300K. Some houses sold for 50k to 100K over their valued price.

6:07 I have lived in Mississippi a state controlled by Republicans and white politicians for a half century. It is a shithole.

The focus here needs to be on Frank White's gross mismanagement not his race. He's probably just as corrupt as his predecessor Mike Sanders, too.

The shit isn't going to really hit the fan until people who ignored these THIS IS NOT A BILL reassessment notice get their actual tax bills and only then find out how much Jackson County and the Royal Screw-up Frank White have raised their taxes. By then it will be too late for them to do anything about it.

"The focus here needs to be on Frank White's gross mismanagement not his race. He's probably just as corrupt as his predecessor Mike Sanders, too."

Totally agree, 6:28 except Mike Sanders was competent. Frank White is a former baseball player, and baseball talent does not translate to competence in other areas.

As Tom Lehrer said about George Murphy, "At last we've got a senator who can really sing and dance." I guess we can say at last we've got a county assessor who can really swing a bat.

The state should have laws to protect homeowners from crap like this. No county should be allowed to double or triple a person's property values in a single reassessment. If the county messed up for years and undervalued homes, it's not the homeowners fault.

Everyone wants the State to fix this but probably 80 per cent of these people vote democrat. The State is run by republicans so maybe these people need to take responsibility think about who they vote for. These same people probably are anti Trump, the next crew of democrats want these people to pay for everything for all the so-called poor people. Vote democrat and this what you get decades of corruption.

What this is exposing is decades of cronyism. These property owners must have been protected by someone for having such undervalued assessments. Many business assessments are probably under valued also because of their political contributions.

What's the matter, Tony ? Afraid of upsetting the children ? No less than three comments from yesterday have been deleted. These comments contained researched facts. No one was threatened with violence, no one was slandered. What are you afraid of , Tony ? You can tell me, Tony. We go back a few years and I've always admired and occasionally praised your respect for uncensored discourse. So, I guess the guy that makes comments about ejaculating on someone is OK but facts outside of the mainstream are bad ? What are you afraid of Tony ?

Make your vote count, worth something! Voting for a person because of skin color is still racist, and most times, celebrities do NOT make good politicians! Use your vote wisely,

Some say that Joco was originally built up because of White Flight.
(even tho it was actually a lack of building codes, making postwar housing $3000 cheaper in Joco than Waldo. Confirmed by Roger the Plumber. It was cheaper to plumb a home in Joco.)

But now we will witness the second Great Migration.
Frank White Flight!

Gotta love that he won't call for a mulligan.
He's sticking with the outside appraisal firm selected by Mike Sanders.
Mike currently lives in North Dakota in a prison.

Frank White is beholden to Sanders, because Frank did not pay HIS county taxes. His house was hours away from being sold on the courthouse steps. Until Sanders provided the lawyer who arranged to loan Frank White the money to get his house out of hock.

Come on over to Shawnee--or anywhere in Joco.
You'll notice the difference in street condition the minute you cross the state line.

We fix our potholes. Didn't divert to a streetcar.

We still have art house theatres. You lost the Tivoli and the Cinemark on the Plaza all in one month!

As for reappraisals, OUR system at least gives you a fighting chance--it lists thre comparables that were used to establish your value.

We all have the life we are willing to put up with. Find a good realtor and list now, cuz this will not get fixed this year. You're screwed. The party is over.

Tracy-It was actually because VA and FHA insured subdivisions were restricted to whites only--by VA and FHA. Blacks were denied entry to postwar suburban housing, thus shutting them out of one of the means of building wealth. This is one reason reparations are not just for slavery.

Tracy is right it is cheaper to live in Johnson County than KC.

Is frank white this dumb or was set up to be a fall guy since higher ups might give him a little more leeway on things because he's a royals icon?

Anonymous said...

It is the KC way of having poor people pay for government- regressive earnings tax and regressive sales tax. Now that the wealthy homeowners and some businesses are actually assessed correctly their is outrage. Brownback must be laughing.

Maybe, but reparations are a dead issue despite recent buzz. The last thing the dwindling productive class needs is to be saddled with yet another handout or entitlement.

In America, in the bad old days you long for (MAGA), when considering Americans, one drop of black blood meant that you were black, but when considering Europeans, it seems that one drop of white blood meant you are white.

Arturo Alfonso Schomburg (January 24, 1874 – June 10, 1938) discovered that Beethoven was mulatto, Pushkin was mulatto, Dumas was mulatto, among others.

When our ancestors suppressed knowledge of black history not only did it mean that they didn't know, but that most of us didn't know, either. So, when you say that they didn't accomplish anything you are being ignorant.

Reparations is, indeed, about more than just slavery (see 11:19), it's about the whole systemic oppression of black history, black culture & black pride.

LMAO!!! "Frank White Flight".

Jackson county voters established the charter, which can also be voted out of existence, along with the poorly educated County Executive, Frank White, Jr.

5:56 - They have to be "citizens to vote" so if you are afraid of non eligible voters changing the political landscape, get in your wallet and check the experation date on your "green Card", once you are a real citizen and can vote, then it might be more appropriate for you to comment on here.
