COMBAT SALES TAX

There is a humerous but real question circulating

"HOW COULD WE COLLECT THIS COMBAT TAX FOR TWENTY YEARS DURING WHICH TIME JACKSON COUNTY HAS BECOME ONE OF THE LARGEST METH PRODUCING AREAS IN THE UNITED STATES?"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


TOP TEN

THINGS THAT THE CITY NEEDS TO DO

1) Billboards-- Catch all the Non property tax paying billboards, start yearly inspections and safety fees, add an excise tax. Institute a building fee that is a % of the total cost of the billboard just like with residential building permits.  

2) Raise Impact Fees--What Impact does each new development project have on the enviroment?

3) Merge the Kansas City Election Board with the Jackson County Election Board--

4) QUIT giving 2 Million to the BALL TEAMS ------------- QUIT playing games with our money

5)  Put Cordish on a short leash - Quit accepting their excuses and whinning

6) Egalatarian dispersal of any ART & Cultural Tax; Racially, and Culturally

7)Tax Increment Financing -New taxes must be TIF EXEMPT ---especially Light Rail.  

If they are not TIF exempt, simply VOTE NO

8) Raise the water and sewage treatment rates to wholesale and commercial accounts. Require that they pay their fair share. Especially Johnson County.

9)Institute a national assessor system like Iowas Collect on ALL of the assets that businesses try to hide.

10) Quit the Police Automobile Loan System to off duty police, particularly for use at some off duty job.

No more "off duty" dog patrol cars running on taxpayer gas.

Ode to a Fallen Comrade

Those who truly knew him honor Craig Davis. His spirit will continue to inspire us long after his passing. He stood tall when most sat idly by. He chose action when most chose to merely observe. His penchant for what was right set him apart from most men. He boldly championed any issue that was right for most and rejected those that benefited only the special few. His way was always forward and always guided by a fundamental set of principles that were in short supply among our elected leaders. There was never any doubt in his mind about what was right and never any reluctance to fight for it. When the facts were known and the issue defined he was always first to say, "I'm ready to go, what can I do to help." He was an essential part of a group of citizen activists who never took a vote; just talked until they reached a consensus made better by his ideas.

Craig was a threat to an arrogant power structure that governs by deceit and guile and whose decisions seem always guided by what's in it for them. He was a threat simply because he wanted nothing for himself and everything for the people. History tells us that people like Craig have always been a threat to bigots and tyrants precisely because they want nothing for themselves.

 He was the living embodiment of an old idea that says, "I shall walk this way but once. Any good thing, therefore, that I can do, let me do it now. Let me not delay or defer it for I shall not pass this way again." He did not delay or defer and those of us who were privileged to know him are all the better for it.
