The complaints of Kansas City voters resonate across the State as this Democratic Party lady identifies a Kansas City ballot question currently underway very much like the first streetcar secret vote that was described as the “most corrupt election since the Pedergast era” by local power players.
“Outrageous. That’s the word Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway used over and over to describe her office’s findings after an audit into the state’s 205 Transportation Development Districts. “The average citizen is getting taken advantage of here,” Galloway said Monday at a press conference to release the report . “It’s outrageous that there’s almost $1 billion in project costs that taxpayers are on the hook for. They don’t know about it and they didn’t vote for it.” Galloway, a Democrat, is calling on legislators to overhaul state law regarding Transportation Development Districts or TDDs. The Missouri General Assembly first passed a law in 1990 to allow the creation of the districts, which can charge sales taxes for the construction or maintenance of transportation projects . . .”
