MISSOURI DELAYS MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS: KANSAS CITY FIRE SALES TAX MUST WAIT!!!



An important move to protect Democracy and a nice bit of planning to keep a controversial levy from passing without a proper look from the voting public.

Here's an important move that shouldn't be lost in the mix . . .

Fox4: Governor Mike Parson postpones upcoming municipal elections until June

Deets:

The elections, which were originally scheduled for Tuesday, April 7, will now take place Tuesday, June 2.

“Postponing Missouri’s municipal elections is a necessary step to help combat the spread of the virus and protect the health and safety of Missouri voters,” Governor Parson wrote in a statement. “Postponing an election is not easy, but we are all in this together. We are thankful to Secretary Ashcroft and our 116 election authorities for their leadership, cooperation, and commitment to doing what is best for their communities during this time.”

Missouri currently has 16 recorded cases of coronavirus.

It would not have won anyway. There is no way that voters would approve that kind of unnecessary tax when we have so many streets and potholes that need to be filled.

20% turnout last time around, this one would have been way less. Public isn't interested in voting anyway.

The more articles I read, the more it sounds like "every man for himself" is how we're going to handle this. I expected nothing less, honestly - people are selfish, greedy, and stupid when mass hysteria sets in.

Now that Trump has decimated the economy, forget ANY tax increases for the foreseeable future. This tax increase is no different. DOA!

Thanks, Trump! MAGA!!!

Hey did you hear about this virus thing that's going around? Brace yourself, but a few people have said it has had some effect on the global economy.

Good of you to be a brain donor. Very public spirited.

This sales tax is not. KCFD padding budget so they can waste more funds on unnecessary overtime, making some Locsl 42 members the highest paid City employees. It’s ridiculous and needs to be shut down.
