No New Community Center or Property Taxes - Vote NO! Destroys The Vote Yes at the Ballot Box

The unofficial results are in regarding the $38 million bond issue to build a new community center in Shawnee.

NO...............14,380     72.12%

Yes.................5,559     27.88%

46.38% of the registered voters responded.  Usually in a mail ballot election the number is 30% to 35%
Tremendous outpouring.

This was a total, unequivocal repudiation of this boondoggle, and of those high profile individuals who supported it.  But more on that after the official certification.  I definitely want to see the breakdown by ward.

One thing that has come out of this election is that the people of Shawnee have shown that they will not allow the few to control the many.  No longer will you hear, "it doesn't matter what I think, it will happen anyway"

There is a new dynamic in Shawnee....................

Right now, I am extremely euphoric.  More to come after the certification.
