MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS PLEDGES 'BORDER WAR TRUCE' IN KANSAS CITY!!!



We talked a bit about this bold municipal pledge last night and in the light of day it deserves even more examination.

Remember that this move comes a little more than a month after Kansas City gave away tens of millions of bucks to Waddell & Reed in a move that sparked outcry throughout the metro.

In a recent social media post, Mayor Quinton Lucas proclaims:

"The Kansas City Council just passed our Border War truce ordinance -- preventing businesses from taking advantage of economic incentives by hopping back and forth across state line for tax breaks. Now, we're already turning our attention to the next steps we can take to ensure equity and opportunity throughout our region.

"I just announced, with Kansas City, Kansas Mayor David Alvey and Olathe, Kansas Mayor Michael Copeland, the creation of the Regional Committee on Economic Mobility to bring development to areas that have historically suffered from underinvestment.

"This Regional Committee on Economic Mobility has the potential to fundamentally change how the Kansas City region approaches the big issues facing our communities and I look forward to working closely with my colleagues on both sides of the state line to advance opportunity for all."

You decide . . .

I hope this includes the money for the new stadium that KC is going to have to pony up.

And the airport.

Basically, he just said NO to more KC jobs. Good luck with that.

That so called "Border War" truce ordinance isn't worth the paper it was written on.

Both sides of the state line need to stop giving charity to larger companies while ignoring the residents and small mom and pop places of business that were what built this metro area.

FLOYD WEARS A PINK PUSSY HAT

You don't need no education
You do need liberal thought control
Quinton's dark sarcasm in the newsroom
Taxpayers leave them politicos alone
Hey, taxpayers, leave them TIFs alone
All in all it's just another brick in the wall
All in all you're just another prick in their wall

Maybe it's stupidity, but you just gotta jump into things and prove without a doubt, it’s stupidity.

^^^Not maybe. It is stupidity if you're involved.

Waddell & Reed is on their third jump across the border. So why did Mayor Selfie decide now to not pay for border jumping? He already paid them. The horses have left the barn Mayor. You can leave the door open.

Business will move to smaller Towns forty plus miles away. To much crime. They are thinking about there employees and Clients safety. They will keep feeding the public this LIKE THEY HAVE FOR THIRTY PLUS YEARS
