TOPEKA, KAN. The Wichita chapter of the grassroots group Americans for Prosperity-Kansas released the following statement today in response to an effort to have signees remove their names from the recent petition to force an election on a Wichita charter ordinance.
Activists with Americans for Prosperity and many other local organizations are firmly engaged in the public process, acting on our right to ask for a public vote on how our city doles out tax dollars to private interests. Certainly the opposition in this matter is acting on its right to fight our efforts.
Yesterday we announced plans to attempt to overturn part of the incentive package approved by the Wichita City Council for a private development in downtown Wichita.
Many Wichita residents have already responded, ready to join our efforts in fighting the charter ordinance allowing the hotel developers to collect a guest tax from hotel patrons while keeping most of the funds collected for their own use. We appreciate the quick response from so many of you!
We are not allowed to begin collecting signatures on the protest petition until the final publication of the ordinance in The Wichita Eagle on Sept. 30. The petition will be available starting on that day, and we will continue the petition drive for the next 60 days.
In the meantime, any questions about the petition can be directed to email@example.com. You can also read more about the issue here.
