Michael Fletcher wants minority involvement on e-tax campaign — or else

By the time that the special election on whether or not to preserve Kansas City’s earnings tax rolls around in April 2011, voters may find themselves suffering from campaign fatigue.

That’s why it’s all the more important to educate potential voters on the issue ASAP, says Michael Fletcher, a local attorney and candidate for City Council, 3rd District. The one-percent earnings tax generates $200 million annually to the city’s general fund. The campaign to save it could cost $1 million. What’s problematic for Fletcher are the names of political consultants who are being considered to potentially oversee the campaign. They’re all white.
