TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! JACKSON COUNTY SHUTS DOWN EXEC FRANK WHITE ON STATUE REMOVAL WITHOUT VOTE!!!
Followup on the fight over some long dead white guy . . .
More to the point and related to drama which MSM can't describe or don't understand . . .
This move says more about the ongoing bad relationship betwixt the EXEC Vs. The Legislature and not the current campaign season culture war.
However . . .
THERE'S A VERY REAL CHANCE THAT VOTERS MIGHT ENDORSE THE MONUMENT TO SLAVER PREZ JACKSON!!!
None of this is a good look for the county but a nice distraction until new higher property tax values are eventually revealed.
KSHB: Jackson County legislators override White statue veto
Deets on the downtown KCMO tribute to a REALLY racist Prez:
"After concerns were raised about the history of Andrew Jackson, Jackson County legislators passed an ordinance earlier this summer that would ask voters in November whether to remove the statue. Last week, County Executive Frank White vetoed that legislation, asking legislators to instead vote themselves on whether or not to keep the statue. On Monday, legislators voted to override White’s veto, putting the question back on the November ballot."
Accordingly . . .
JAXCO VOTERS: WILL YOU KEEP OR REBUKE THE ANDREW JACKSON MONUMENT AT THE COURTHOUSE?!?
Bad news here all around . . . A vote to keep it will make this part of the metro look backward and cost a great deal of cash over time. However, a vote to remove will acquiesce to vandals who might have been more productive in starting a grassroots campaign and gathering petitions before grabbing spray paint.
