Vaught Can't or Won't Back Up Statement

With a pending vote on a sales tax increase coming up for road repairs, Jeff Vaught made a statement at last week's council meeting that 40% of the city's sales tax revenue comes from non-Shawnee residents.

On 6/18/14 I sent him an email and asked him to provide certain back up information for that statement.  One would think that since he had made that statement he would have the back up info readily available.

So why hasn't he replied to my email?  I'd say it was for one of two reasons:
1.  He can't provide it
2.  He won't provide it (doesn't feel that he has to respond to citizen inquiries)
