The special session of the Kansas Legislature will be called into session tomorrow. My opponent, Jeff Melcher, has made it known he thinks the session is a waste of time. Really? Adequately funding our schools is a waste of time to Mr. Melcher? No, a waste of time is a teacher worrying about if she is going to have a job in August because the Legislature won’t do what is right and raise the level of funding. A waste of time is a working parent looking for childcare when the schools are supposed to be open. I’m appalled that Governor Brownback and Jeff Melcher are playing politics with the most precious resource our state has; our kids.
It is well past time for the Governor and Legislature to admit their mistakes, put LLCs back on the tax rolls, and reverse the March to Zero income tax rates. Without a revenue stream to fund our services, Overland Park will continue to hemorrhage jobs and companies, such as Pathfinder Innovations, which is moving to Missouri. Read about it here. I’m an Overland Park City Councilman. I know how to bring jobs to my city and my state. Tax cuts are NOT THE SOLUTION!
