TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! JACKSON COUNTY EXECUTIVE SUPPORTERS CLAIM VOTER APPROVAL FOR FRANK WHITE ENDURES!!!
We've got A TON of notes to parse through on the Jackson County property tax hot mess but the most interesting message about the crisis comes from a supporter and insider among TEAM FRANK.
As always, in order to be fair to both sides, we think this deserves a look.
Here's the argument:
"TKC, I know how you love to cater to the mob but I just wanted to remind of you the overwhelming margin of victory that the Frank White enjoyed in both his election to office as a Legislator and as the County Executive. The County has simply never seen an official as popular as Frank White. There was not a single opponent with a viable set of endorsements willing to run against him. It might be fair to report some public frustration but I urge you to look at the big picture. If an election were held today, our internal numbers have shown us that there are no candidates in Kansas City that come close unseating Frank White."
And so we ask our most dedicated Sunday night readers:
IS JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE STILL UNBEATABLE DESPITE THE PROPERTY TAX CRISIS?!?!?
That's a tough sell but we can't argue that, even at this point, opponents (who don't have their own set of baggage) would be hard to find.
You decide . . .
