There is no denying the tax fighter credentials of Preston Smith.
He worked diligently against historic increases by the Courthouse in 2019 and, TKC believes, there's NOBODY who understand the property tax issue more completely than this diehard conservative.
However . . .
The reality is that Legislator Theresa Galvin has the inside track right now because of fundraising and insider GOP connections.
However . . . That doesn't mean that we shouldn't listen to what Mr. Smith has to say.
A recent quote that deserve attention and explains his beef with Missouri GOP leaders . . .
"Here’s how the Jackson County GOP responded to me last night. The crime that I did at those two public events that they wanted me arrested for was ... Passing out campaign flyers."

"We have to ask ourselves: Why has the Republican establishment worked so hard to stop me from running to serve the people of this county? I promise to stand up for you, the people and fight for the issues. The stakes are high with the present plans laid out before us with tax increases like we have never seen before. Please do your research and ask yourself, "Why doesn't my opponent in the primary discuss the issues and or point out one issue on her website? The people of Jackson County need to do their homework and vote on August 2 in the primary to save us from the colossal spending plan already in motion."
