Edwarsdville KS Pollys Gives Corporate Welfare To Apartment Building Project Going Nowhere


Y
et another story about area politicians giving tax breaks to wealthy real estate developers while at the same time decrying budget shortfalls- cutting services yet raising people's taxes.



This particular folly is in Edwardsville- where "not one spade of dirt" has been turned on an apartment building project that town's pollys approved corporate welfare ("tax abatements") for since at least 2008- according to the BONNER SPRINGS (KS) CHIEFTAIN.

On top of all that- Edwardsville spent several hundreds of thousands of dollars on improvements to public infrastructure for the planned apartment complex.


If the so-called "Tea Party" really wants to make a hit with American citizens- propose and implement a STOP to ANY and ALL forms of corporate welfare in these UCSA (United Corporate States of America)!
