April 4th Ballot Questions Opposition - Panel Discussion: Plaza Library

Post by kard » Thu Mar 23, 2006 12:57 am

I came across this today.




    Oppose the Half-Billion Dollar Subsidy for Arrowhead & Kauffman Stadiums?
    JOIN THE CROWD!!!
    Monday, March 27
    7 PM Plaza Library
    48th and Main, KCMO

    The corporate and moneyed interests would rather you not learn the
    reasons to vote against the stadium proposal. We believe citizens
    should know both sides.  Come hear the panel and learn why we oppose
    the $475 million taxpayer subsidy for Arrowhead and Kauffman
    Stadiums!  Panelists will give brief presentations followed by
    questions and comments from the audience.

    Panelists:
    Craig Davis - organizer of No! I Can't Afford It! Committee
    George Harris - Chiefs season ticket holder
    Terrance Nash - Citizens' Advisory Board of Jackson County Sports Authority

The only figures that matter is how many people show up to vote and how much money has been spent on each side.
Calling a spade a spade.

Why don't you show up and spoil the fun then?  If you can't, bite it.

Nuh uh!  Money doesn't have anything to do with it!

I heard that half the crowd will be reporters with cameras.  And they'll have cops to kick any Yes people out, because I emailed them and told them about people "showing up to be asswipes."

Sheesh.

Hundreds of minority and women workers could be hired to overhaul the Truman Sports Complex under construction agreements approved Thursday by the Jackson County Legislature.


Slick Move
