TKC QUESTION: HOW CAN TAX WEARY VOTERS STOP OUTGOING MAYOR & COUNCIL FINAL SPENDING SPREE?!?!
Kansas City is now confronted with the steepest tax increase in more than a generation but everybody on City Council has maintained radio silence whilst they prepare to push through a last minute agenda filled with massive spending, perks, giveaways, benefits and subsidy.
And so we ask . . .
HOW CAN KANSAS CITY VOTERS TELL THEIR OUTGOING REPS TO AVOID ANOTHER LAST MINUTE SPENDING SPREE BEFORE THEIR TENURE EXPIRES?!?!
The City Hall website is undergoing renovation and 12th & Oak e-mail pleading has always been overrated.
Lobbying Mayor-Elect Quinton Lucas on social media is somewhat effective until voters get a freebie law lecture which eliminates their will to live. Still, Twitter & FB push back might be the best/only way to confront the lame duck Mayor & Council as next week this town considers a great many big ticket items including but not limited to:
- Tax Breaks For Empty Office Space
- EPIC Cash For Streetcar Extension
- Airport Road Funding For MILLIONS Despite New KCI Promises That It Wouldn't Cost Taxpayers A Dime . . .
And so, the cash July cash fight continues with so may close watchers of KCMO politicos hoping this Mayor & Council won't max out this town's credit cards whilst walking out the door.
