TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! INSIDER: BLAME EXECUTIVE FRANK WHITE FOR MISSOURI CRACKDOWN ON JACKSON COUNTY!!!
Last week we talked about a GROUNDBREAKING move let voters have a say in the way Jackson County Property Taxes are collected.
This week that discussion turned into news fact . . . Dead-Tree media hid their story behind a paywall but here's a better report for the public:
KCTV5: Big suggestions from Jefferson City about your property taxes
This comes on the heels of Jackson County’s most recent assessment where some homeowner saw giant spikes in value despite what appears to be a lack of solid information and groundwork by Jackson County’s assessment department. Elected county leaders have described the process as a “debacle.” A record number of homeowners are appealing.
Check the highlights.
Best of all, here's INSIDER perspective on how this drama will play . . .
"There's absolutely no question this has been a result of how badly the Administration of Executive Frank White has bungled this process. What's worse is that this will hurt ever Executive that follows him into office. Missouri is slowly stripping away the home rule of Jackson County voters and opening the path for Republicans to get a foothold in an area that has voted for the Democratic Party since the days of the New Deal. It's a disaster that's going to bring down Democratic Party hopefuls across the state in 2020."
