This UNSIGNED editorial by a paid off Newspaper is nothing more than HogsWallow! Get the facts and stop trying to manipulate them Shame on you Star as always! You are supposed to be a Media source NOT A PROPAGANDA MACHINE!

As of June 30, the Unified Goverment’s general-obligation bond indebtedness alone was $274 million, or about $1,741 for every man, woman and child in Wyandotte County. By contrast, the per capita debt load in wealthy Overland Park was $1,100.

The mill levy rate on property taxes in Johnson County is 11 mills compared to 96 mills for Wyandotte County for similar services.

The sunshine review gives WYCO a D grade for Transparency and info accessibility.
