Tonight the elite at 12th & Oak repeat their mantra of 'equity & inclusion' amid alleged persecution from Missouri Governor Parson and probably former Prez Trump too.
First up, urban core outcry from the 3rd District Council Lady:
Kansas City Councilwoman Melissa Robinson, who serves as executive director of the Black Health Care Coalition, says the lack of complete and accurate data is “extremely troubling” and threatens to undermine the COVID-19 fight. “It’s actually maddening and extremely frustrating that this isn’t a transparent process, and we’re left here piecing together information when all we’re trying to do is to preserve human life,” Robinson said.
Behind the scenes, we thought it was interesting to do just a bit of 990 research in order to reveal that in the last publicly available disclosure statement, council lady Robinson earned more than 70K for her job at this organization. In many of the statements, she's the only employee on record. Add that to her 3-day-per-week council gig of more than 70 grand and she's taking down a decent chunk of change -- Statistically, she earns far more than the majority of people who reside within her district.
Not to be outdone . . .
Dr. Rex earns more than 180K; that's one of the highest health department leader salaries in the Kansas City metro.
Thankfully, he still makes time to advocate for vulnerable populations in this cowtown.
His latest statement . . .
Kansas City Health Director Dr. Rex Archer says the region has not gotten its fair share of COVID-19 vaccines according to the Missouri’s distribution plan. “You can see that if we’re 23% of the population, and we’re getting 20% of the vaccine, we’re 40,000 doses short for Region A, and that’s just straight math,” Archer said of the information reported on Missouri’s COVID-19 website.
And so . . .
Whilst vaxx 'equity' is debatable, sharing public info regarding the salaries of local officials also helps to offer more context for constant complaints about fairness.
