TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY FIREFIGHTERS SHARE WORRISOME CORONAVIRUS SOCIAL DISTANCING ADVICE FOR UPCOMING TAX INCREASE VOTE!!!
The June 2nd election might be the most hotly debated vote in Kansas City history as politically charged locals emerge from the lockdown.
To wit and despite the historically low turnout affair . . .
KANSAS CITY TAX FIGHTERS FEAR THE RECENT MAILER OFFERING CORONAVIRUS ELECTION SAFETY TIPS MIGHT BE NOTHING MORE THAN POLITICAL SCARE TACTICS TO KEEP VOTER TURNOUT LOW!!!
Take a look:
A skeptical reader seyz:
"Too scary to go out and vote for this money grab? NO! VOTE! This is really one of the dirtiest mailers I've ever seen. They had a chance here to take the high road and ask people to vote to protect fire fighters and support some of these very brave first responders. Instead, they started off in the gutter and want to highlight the risk of going to the polls. Sad."
To be fair, there are some very helpful hints on the flip side of this mailer that would benefit voters no matter their political leanings.
Forgive us for trying to offer an alternative from cynicism despite hundreds of millions of dollars at stake.
We want to believe that money isn't the only motivation in politics and even the most powerful leadership in Kansas City cares about the health of EVERY voter despite the chance of political opposition.
Never mind that this EPIC FIREFIGHTER SALES TAX INCREASE VOTE might be decided by a tiny fraction of the electorate compared to the much larger number of taxpayers on the hook for a higher cost of local living overall.
Certainly, the discourse in this cowtown can't be as divisive, misanthropic and misleading as the struggle for dominance currently underway at the national level.
You decide . . .
