Desperate efforts to count every one of Kansas City's illegal immigrants and so many other people off the grid didn't work.
To wit . . .
EARLY KANSAS CITY CENSUS NUMBERS REVEAL RESIDENTS POLITELY IGNORED THE COUNT AND GOVERNMENT CASH FOR THIS COWTOWN WILL SUFFER FOR IT!!!
The word from city hall seems to blame residents, of course . . .
Mayor Q recently shared: "Update on Kansas City’s final 2020 Census self response, per staff estimate."
Still, there's also a chance that these unofficial numbers OVERESTIMATE KCMO population.
In fact, amid the pandemic it's not so hard to believe that a great many locals have given up on the urban core and moved elsewhere.
There's a lot of blame for Kansas City's bad showing in the census. Somehow, it's probably the fault of the old white guy you're going to vote AGAINST in the election.
