Damn good. Every tax increase has one or two campaigns.

It's either the "missing piece" and the very last thing that they'll ask for in order to complete years of work.

Or, if they don't get it, everybody is going to die. This has been how it has worked for at least 20 years and so far on the rare occasions when they lose neither premise turns out to be correct.

Maybe this is why the FD don't want to live within city limits.

Northeast News is one of the rare newspapers to oppose taxes, I always think the other media outlets are getting a "conversation" about why they're so important that's tied to their access.

Countdown to the el bryan hater who always gets salty but never shows us any of their work that's supposedly better.

Nicely done, Bryan

Just wait and see how much your taxes go up from this airport fiasco.

With Mike's new taxpayer-subsidized "luxury" hotel coming soon, when will the campaign to expand Bartle Hall begin?
An endless loop of stupidity.
Momentum!

Taxation at gunpoint in KC. Pretty much the story of this Summer.

This is funny (not funny). It would be funnier (not funnier) if he had Jean Peters Baker giving him the gun. What a worthless sack of shit she is.

The Airport and uber expensive bike lanes, all Trump's fault.
