TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! INSIDERS FEAR JACKSON COUNTY PROPERTY TAX CRISIS ALLOWS MISSOURI GOP OPPORTUNITY TO GAIN TRACTION INSIDE DEMOCRATIC PARTY DOMINATED KANSAS CITY METRO!!!



The consequences of the most hard-fought Kansas City tax debate in a generation have opened the door to a partisan debate that reaches across Missouri.

To wit . . .

DEMOCRATIC PARTY INSIDERS WARN THAT MISSOURI REPUBLICAN INFLUENCE THREATENS JACKSON COUNTY AND THE KANSAS CITY METRO AS THE PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENT CRISIS WORSENS!!!

First here's context for the discussion and a news items that was mostly overlooked . . .

KCTV5: State committee forms to find property tax solution following concerns in Jackson County

Deets:

A special committee made up of 10 representatives has been formed to address the property tax concerns of homeowners across the state.

Jackson County homeowners have been outraged at sky-high assessments. Some homeowners have seen a 450% increase on their homes.

State Representative Robert Sauls from Independence said a solution must come from the state level to protect and help all taxpayers. There is absolutely a willingness among state leaders to step in and solve this problem.

Other members include mostly GOP members:

Rep. J. Eggleston (R) Maysville, MO
Rep. Mike McGirl (R) Potosi, MO
Rep. Steve Butz (D) St. Louis, MO
Rep. Phil Christofanelli (R) St. Peters, MO
Rep. Jeff Coleman (R) Grain Valley, MO
Rep. Jim Murphy (R) St. Louis, MO
Rep. Chrissy Sommer (R) St. Charles, MO
Rep. Jered Taylor (R) Republic, MO
Rep. Barbara Washington (D) Kansas City, MO
#####

Now, perspective from locals who understand the statewide implications . . .

"If the State Of Missouri is forced to step in and solve this problem, then what we've seen is a total mishandling of this situation from Executive Frank White. What's worse is that it would open the door to Jackson County for Republican to start making gains."

Insider hot take into geopolitics . . .

"Already we've seen that Eastern Jack isn't as dedicated to partisan influence or voting a straight party ticket . . . In fact, most voters are becoming more Independent, they pick and choose candidates and overall this is bad news for Jackson County & Missouri Democrats who might have an opportunity to make gains in 2020."

Back to the Courthouse . . .

"A takeover by the State is proof that the Jackson County Executive can't do his job. It also gives into the old Republican talking point that Democrats can't run local government. The only thing that might save this mess is our charter . . . But voters looking past the Courthouse and going to the (Republican dominated) State for help should set off alarms because it threatens to weaken the biggest Democratic stronghold in Missouri."

frank gives up jackson county. can't blame voters for picking a republican next time around if it saves them a few hundred percentage points on their taxes.

What's happening here is a bit more complex but I get what this post is trying to hint at. Missouri Democrats are really the ones who are going to have to step in here and put Frank White on the bench. When you have a GOP state committee ready to take over Count business, that will make a bad impression on tens of thousands of voters. Missouri might never again be a blue state but this would absolutely destroy some of their best candidates at the state wide level who do have a future.

The move here for the Republicans would be to connect this to the auditor who is looking into the courthouse.

What I think TKC is getting a whiff of here is that Gallowway is going to need to come down hard on Frank White.

It won't be hard for her to do.

most people would vote for the damn "Know Nothings" if it would keep their taxes from going up by 400%

The actual responsibilities of NEITHER county nor city government have much of anything to do with partisan politics.
That's the problem with both Jackson County and KCMO.
Public safety, infrastructure, common sense planning and zoning, a balanced predictable tax rate, competent property assessment, operation of a jail....
NONE of these practical operations depend on what passes for "politics" locally.
Just try electing some people who actually want to serve the public and have some ability to manage competently.
What a concept!

But that's the problem democrats won't and haven't stepped in and put Frank White on the bench. I don't know what democrats are bitching about, they never met a tax they didn't like. Pay up KC and think about how great your city is going to be with your tax dollars at work! Just like it is now! Shit asses like shit holes right? Leave the republicans out of it you made your bed!!!

The last four Jackson County Executives were as follows:
Democrat Bill Waris - Prison
Democrat Katherine Shields - indicted for fraud
Democrat Mike Sanders - Prison
Democrat Frank White - Property Tax Mess

chuck said...

Total bullshit.

The idea that Kansas City and Jackson County voters will ever vote for anything other than freebies from evil whites and skin color might exist in the fever dreams of folks who would like to see good stewardship of taxes, but, it will always to "Gimme More Free Shit From Whitey" and skin color (Read Black).

= Democrat City forever.

Soon, demographics being destiny, the entire country will be a macrocosm of cities like Baltimore and Kansas City, where intellectually inferior, self absorbed, uneducated retards who can scream "RACIST!!!!!!!" louder than anyone else will ascend to power.

Our kids are fucked.

450% increase on their homes.


Well how we going to pay for the streetcar extension, the airport, and all the lost tax revenue out of state developers and companies like Cordish don't have to pay without a little increase? Raises for the Mayor and the new city council who work so hard looking out for their constituents. That takes money.

Frank White has made me vow to never vote Democrat again.
He has made a mockery of what it means to be competent.
He can’t get his own finances in order so he has not a clue on anything else and blames his former employer the great KC Royals for his not having enough money. What a bonafide idiot.
He is the laughingstock dunce of Jackson County and he proves no matter how much money you give someone- if they are incompetent they will find a way to be broke.
Ask Frank White-Flight to find a job that’s non-public so he can quit hurting taxpayers.

White people who vote Democrat have an ingrained, religious ability to believe lies and engage in willful impercipience on a galactic level.

Most all religions require a belief in the unknowable and an adherence to that belief in spite of the objective facts available that would refute that same belief.

The new secular religion of Progressives, require the believer to pretend that the obvious extrapolations, based on previous scenarios and situations that even now, are unfolding as we watch in horror, don't exist and that if they do, they will somehow improve even as they deteriorate. After all, GOD has a plan.

Venezuela, Baltimore, East St. Louis, Detroit, Birmingham, Cuba, Stalinist Russia, the list of Progressive/Fascist/Statist Cities, plans, states, nations, politicians, movements that have killed millions and now, promise Free Everything, is endless. Yet, in the face of the unambiguated evidence of the previous disasters and the ongoing dysfunction present in current Socialist experiments, morons keep thinking that if we just vote for the latest unqulified, unrepentant "Hate Whitey" politician and gorge ourselves in self loathing, ethnomasochistic flagellation our votes will bring on a Progressive Utopia.

Progressives steal middle class money and give that money to people that hate the middle class.

May I Have another one?

White idiots in Kansas City are no different than idiots throughout the nation.

^^yes we know dummy, you're the biggest white idiot on here. remind us all again, exactly how many times you've had your ass beaten by the backs tough guy?

chuck said...

Several times.

I have, as I have said, a very healthy respect for extemporaneous black on white violence based on racial hate.

Not to mention, I have been shot at, my business has been shot up and I have been robbed at gunpoint several times by your heroes.

In addition, my dear friend and benefactor Mike D. was shot in the back of the head and killed on the Indian Creek Trail by a scumbag just like you.

And, let's not forget, I witnessed a murder in Naples Italy, where a white guy (Marine) was stabbed to death by a group of blacks.

Finally, my friend who worked at Superior Sound back in the 80's was shot in the chest by a Black with a 357, but, he lived.

I think he votes Republican.

"During a Netroots Nation convention panel discussion in Philadelphia over the weekend, Pressley talked about changing the paradigm of conventional politics, urging minority leaders to own their identities, whether they be "black," "brown," "Muslim," or "queer. "We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice," she said. "If you’re worried about being marginalized and stereotyped, please don’t even show up because we need you to represent that voice."

I agree.

We don't need any white faces that don't want to be a white voice.

The New America hates you white boy.

^^^ The political Left has successfully combined its never-ending charges of racism against whites with legal force and media shaming and corporate blacklisting and word-policing and diversity-worship and pseudo-intellectual racist propaganda about white privilege and white fragility and Hollywood disinformation about the uniquely wicked nature of white history and every other form of Pavlovian conditioning imaginable. Whites have become to accusations of racism what Punxsutawney Phil is to his own shadow. It is painful to watch.

White people are so afraid to take their own side, to stand up for themselves, to band together, to prefer their own, to acknowledge the harsh reality of racial differences when it comes to intelligence and crime and everything else, that it's just downright pathetic. While every other group advances their own interests, whites fall all over themselves to advance the interests of every other group. It is borderline pathological. I think most white people would rather be dead and buried than called racist. The road to serfdom was paved with anti-racist intentions here in America. And there is no way to characterize the current state of white America's psyche other than as colonized, vassalized, tyrannized.

America DOES hate white people.

Left wing KMBC 9 sits behind its iron fence and iron gate attacking our President and law enforcement for trying to secure the countrys border. At least KCTV 5 has reported extensively regarding the Democrats raising our property taxes, unlike KMBC 9.
