Stacy Lake Sends Surprise Campaign Blast Against Jackson County Use Tax

Attempting to build off her ALMOST win against the Exec in the primary a year ago . . .

Here's a local upstart politico who might be right about online taxation but mistaken about her chances of making a notable political career by way of social media trolling . . . Check-it:

"On November 7, Jackson County will have a special election to attempt to impose a new 1.5% tax for all online purchases outside of Jackson County. The election board is expecting a 3% voter turnout. I am urging every Jackson County resident to vote “No” on this abhorrent and myopic tax increase.

"Confusing in its construction, Jackson County Question #1 is asking our residents to pay an additional 1.5% tax on goods purchased outside of Jackson County. This is primarily a tax on online purchases. The Jackson County Government claims they need money for (1) roads and bridges, (2) “repair projects,” (3) additional financial assistance to homeless persons and (4) renovations to the courthouses in Kansas City and Independence. This is misleading at best, and an intentional falsehood at worst. The truth is that the Jackson County Government currently has more money to invest in its residents than it has ever had in its history, but sadly mismanagement and misappropriations are certain to ensure that the residents will not benefit from it."
