TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! COUNCIL LADY HEATHER HALL REFUSES TO ENDORSE KANSAS CITY EARNINGS TAX RENEWAL CAMPAIGN!!!

Recently our blog community proved FIRST to break news of a powerful coalition endorsing the 2021 Kansas City earnings tax renewal campaign

The list included a vast array of civic associations, local business, and civil rights leaders. 

The alliance is led by Mayor Quinton Lucas and every member of the city council. Except one. 

To wit . . .

HEATHER HALL IS THE ONLY ELECTED OFFICIAL AT 12TH & OAK STANDING AGAINST THE E-TAX!!!

As always, we believe it takes courage to hold an unpopular viewpoint and dispute the crowd. The elected leader's contrarian perspective deserves consideration as local media have overlooked opposition to the longtime tax which funds a great deal of the budget but now confronts controversy amid massive COVID telework appeals

Councilperson Hall has always been proficient at communicating with constituents and so we are EXCEPTIONALLY GRATEFUL she shared this response with our blog community.

E-Tax Statement From Kansas City First District Council Lady Heather Hall

I am not in support of the Earnings Tax as a source of General Fund revenue for the City of Kansas City. It began as a source of funds to support trash needs for the citizens.  It has morphed into a fund that does not do its original intent and is constantly a bargaining tool to scare people into support.

I have said that I will not endorse the campaign to renew the tax. I have also said I will not strongly campaign against it until I have a plan to replace it with a better, more consistent source of revenue for the City.

As I research other successful cities across the country, most do not fund their budget in this manner. I will continue to research other methods that would help our city better fund the budget to meet the needs of our citizens.

In service,

Heather Hall

Good for her. It's time somebody stood up to Quinton Lucas.

Heather for Mayor!

Of course the tax will pass but I think you d-bags will miss the most important part of her statement. She's not just being an unproductive complainer. She's talking about replacing the funding and doing work to find alternatives. That takes a lot more brains than just complaining on the Internet.

Better look out heather, mayor mcdumbo and the racist black clowncil members will call you racist for this, if they lose the tax they won’t be able to give that money to the fat fake revs, the mwbe crowd that demand to be paid for work they don’t do (hush money) and the crime groups that do nothing as well. They will brand you a racist for this, I guarantee it.

the tax is a diminishing return. Didn't sly say he was going to work on it? Nothing happened. Sad.

This CANNOT STAND. We CANNOT ALLOW INTEGRITY to exist in government.

She will ruin the entire system of graft and corruption.

Silence her at once.

Hall is right, of course, but the e-tax will pass easily just as it always does.
A low-turnout election.
The usual clueless citizen do-gooders who support pretty much any nonsense that comes out of 12th and Oak.
And, most importantly, all the insiders and grifters who've been in line for handouts from the e-tax slush fund for many years and will do everything and anything to prevent that gravy train from shutting down.
It's really a shame that KCMO doesn't have an actual city government.
Sad.

Hold on a minute.
She's White and the E-tax disproportionately affects Whites who bear the burden of being employed, paycheck earning taxpayers who are forced to contribute in place of those who don't and sustain those who continually take.

It passes 70/30.

This town is full of scared morons who will believe grandma won't get saved by the ambulance if it doesn't pass.

Hope she is prepared to support cuts in benefits to her publi safety friends if it does not pass. Bet not given her support group.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

POLITICIANS AND THEIR CONSULTING BUDDIES GET RICH OFF OF YOUR TAX PAYMENTS !!

HEATHER FOR MAYOR AND NO TO THIS STUPID ETAX.....

Heather is a champion and I would vote for her in a second. The e-tax is a screw job and should be eliminated. Some call it a welfare tax and I would agree with this statement.

Oh Please Heather this is your second term in office. You wait until three weeks before the election to say your looking for something to replace the etax. What have you been doing for the last 6 years? You should have been doing something before now.

She just got my vote.

Vote yes, City Hall needs more money to pour in to 18th & Vine

Vote Yes on the Earnings Tax renewal, so we can keep spending tax money on entertainment districts, convention centers, convention hotels, parking garages for luxury condos and apartments, toy trains, stadiums and subsidize underperforming TIF's.

And that's just completely wrong. If you look at it from the hood 2 the small houses that white sewn-in SKC, you see a lot of people both black and white are sick of this tax and spend BS that just benefits the developer class and ignores neighborhoods.

The E Tax needs to go and the City needs to right size. The City has and time again spent huge amounts of money on the Urban project while ignoring basic services such as roads, street lights, side walks and medians.

Riverside and NKC each have a casino and more tax money than they can spend. KCMO has TWO casinos. Where does all that money go?

Folks would not mind the extremely high taxes the Council inflicts on the KCMO residents if the services they provide were decent.
Look at the roads, street ,ignites, side walks and road medians in the west side of the city. Horrible.
The Council has been bullied by the Urban majority to take the tax money from the west and north sides of the city and spend it on 3rd district ill fated projects.

Funny how City Hall has money for the streetcar with free rides and give away money for TIF with not a payback on some on them and give away money for festivals but a E-TAX is so badly needed . Let's not forget all the studied on Light Rail for 8 years and finally when with the streetcars without a major vote of the public.
