Election day for the E-tax

I sincerely hope that Kansas City residents will take advantage of the privilege they have today to vote on how their local government is operated and funded. Residents will today decide whether to extend the 1% earnings tax paid by me, every KCPD member, and everyone else who works in Kansas City, Mo., for another five years. I told you last week about the estimated impact on the department of losing the tax. If you'd like more information, check out this presentation.

Thank you to all of those who already have cast your vote, and thanks to those of you who plan to do so later today.
