Get out and vote!

Today is election day all across America, and there are some very important issues and contests on the ballot here in Kansas City. I encourage you to research who and what you'll be voting for. If you live in Missouri, you can look up your sample ballot before you head to the polls.

If you live in Kansas City, questions 1 and 2 on the ballot are about renewing the public safety sales tax. Question 1 would renew the existing tax. Question 2 would allow the City to issue bonds, allowing for the completion of a new East Patrol Division Station, North Patrol Division Station, Regional Crime Lab and Headquarters remodel within the next 3 to 4 years. You can learn more at http://www.saferkc.com/.

Another important issue for both Missouri and Kansas City voters is Proposition A. The City of Kansas City has put together an informational packet on the possible effects of this measure that you can see here.
