The first African-American mayor of Kansas City, Kansas earned accolades from both conservative and progressive voters.
TRAGICALLY, ALL OF MAYOR GARNER'S GOODWILL HAS BEEN WASTED ON A LUXURY YUKON DENALI!!!
Taxpayer outcry shouldn't be downplayed . . .
Things are rough amid the pandemic and this car costs more than many homes in some the rougher parts of The Dotte . . .
It’s a luxury Yukon Denali. He paid $85,569 — rather, the Wyandotte County taxpayers paid that.
And, some taxpayers are questioning the purchase because it appears to be the opposite of what Garner promised on the day he was sworn in.
“Streamline government, cut costs, cut out wasteful spending, and transfer those costs savings to you,” pledged Garner.
Garner campaigned on fiscal responsibility. On his campaign website, one of his goals is “a responsible 20% reduction of combined U.G. departmental expenses.”
