SIX REASONS TO VOTE AGAINST THE COMBAT TAX

 

1) THEY STILL TAKE TAX INCREMENT FINANCE MONEY OUT OF THE MONEY THEY COLLECT. THEY SAID THAT THEY WOULD NOT DO THAT ANYMORE.

The last light rail vote was TIF exempt why are safety taxes not exempt??

 2) Let the public see the 990's from the Non Profits that receive the money. Let the public see the audits of those who get the money!

3) Murders are up. Drug murders are up. If there was ever a new plan it might end up differently, but it is always the same. Give us more money and we will ask again.

4) SAME PEOPLE GET THE MONEY and THEY GET THE SAME RESULTS 

5) There is a lack of responsiveness on the part of the Police Department and they receive part of these funds. They still loan official cars to off duty officers working for private businesses. They still allow officers in uniform to give character references for private businesses and individuals.

6) The state has decided that the Police will be funded by the City of K.C. and controled by the State of Missouri. This tax by passes the agreed upon finance and control mechanisms.
