Jackson County = Fiscal Responsibility


Dan Tarwater and Henry Rizzo recently sent me this update on the fiscal health of County. They, along with Mike Sanders and the other fantastic legislators, are working hard to run our County in a responsible manner.

Dear Fellow Jackson County Democrats:

With the substantial help of last years CCP endorsements, 2007 marks reform and restructuring in the leadership of your Jackson County government. We are pleased to report to you on the progress made and the ongoing cooperation of the leaders of Jackson County.

County Executive Mike Sanders has teamed up with with the Legislature in the commitment to providing open transparent professional & efficient government. This commitment also provides fiscal responsibility and accountability to you the citizens and taxpayers of our great county. We have already taken major steps to balance the budget and become fiscally sound again. We will no longer accept spending more than we make. The County Charter empowers the Legislature to provide the checks and balances on the administration of the County. In the spirit of cooperation and teamwork with the County Executive, we have proposed and are implementing a 5 Point Plan of improved timely financial information and decision making processes for Jackson County Government. The financial health of any County is the universal litmus test for determining a county’s safety, livability, and ultimately the quality of living it offers our citizens. You have our commitment to this end.

The Truman Sports complex is the Crown Jewel of Jackson County, the voters of Jackson County in 2006 entrusted their vote in the passage of the $500 million dollar stadium renovation project. We are providing constant monitoring of the expenditures and monthly updates on the progress of this important Project. You can share in this exciting process by now viewing streaming video of the Legislative Committee meetings and the full details of the 5 point plan for Jackson County, from the County website http://www.co.jackson.mo.us/

Together we are making Jackson County great again!

Sincerely,
Dan Tarwater III, Chairman
Henry C. Rizzo, Vice Chairman
Jackson County Legislature

Did you really type that? Are you living in bizarro world? Do you realize that the two dolts that signed this are the reason that the county is in the fiscal mess that it currently is in? WOW, you sure do know how to lose what little credibility that you actually had.

Honestly, Shields lied to that legislature for 12 years. It is hard to blame them when she kept them in the dark. For example, look at how much better they all look with a new leader at the helm in Sanders. All the days of fistfights and federal investigations are long gone, and we've finally got a county government we don't have to appologize for.

I am no defender of Shields. But don't stand up for this inept bunch of crooks. Shields didn't vote herself a 126% pay raise, these clowns did. They allowed Shields to lie by not doing their job. For goodness sakes, Garcia was the only one that actually wanted to read the proposal for a $20 million loan, Tarwater looked like it was an inconvienence for him to actually do his job and read the proposal.

Its actually Garza (not Garcia), however I agree that the "gang of 9" legislators would be a tough crew to stay on top of. Let's see if they can keep their hands out of the proverbial cookie jar before giving them too many props. However, I do like the "new look" for the county. It is refreshing, more so given the disaster at city hall.

My bad. I know it is Garza not Garcia. I feel horrible for messing up one of the two honest legislatures names (Grounds is the other one). Just a little tired. And Sanders is at least showing integrity. He is not perfect, but I truly believe he is doing what he feels is best. Hopefully, Grounds and Garza will be the the only ones left from the "gang of nine" next election cycle.

Following Shields must be like following Attila the Hun. By comparison you are assumed to be great. But History shows that is when your pocket is really being picked. Ask even a single simple question about Sanders' statements, claims, or facts, and the myth begins to unravel. It's your choice: blind faith in a conman, or just ask a few questions.

Two years passed, I still remembered the scene of fighting against wolves in Tir Chonaill with friends, sharing fruit which was got by our mabinogi gold around a fire, fishing in a clean pond. Players will have five seconds freezed to make their own preparation, when the fight beings, win or lose, it depends on your own cheap mabinogi. Here is some mabinogi money I took months ago; I was the guy wielding a thick sword. And I know it is rude enough to beat a woman. But, we can use some mabinogi online gold to edit some dates in the setup menu to change the clothes we wear. As a kind of fantastic online game, I think Mabinogi is more similar to comic and need to buy mabinogi gold.

The devaluation of the fiesta Gold grows faster than we think of it. I hope it is reflects to the management department about the question of the fiesta money.
It is caused by the continuous influx of fiesta online gold market currencies. On the other hand, buy fiesta Gold is one of these questions. The fiesta online money is one of the causes.
