Tax Hike Flop

Mayor “Big Shot” Richards’ attempt to increase West Buechel’s business tax revenue by a million bucks fell flat at this week’s City Council meeting. Mayor Big Shot was counting on the votes of his two toadie council member friends and he hoped to swing Council member Mattingly to his side with his standard issue bullshit, blather and disinformation.
Alas, Joe Mattingly was in the hospital on Tuesday and missed the meeting.

The anti-corruption team on the City Council held together and voted Richards’ tax increase down.

The general consensus seemed to be, “You can’t manage the taxpayers’ money you already have, Mr. Big Shot. We’re not going to trust you with MORE!”

In other news, the Council voted a Resolution requesting Mr. Big Shot’s personal lawyer, a/k/a City Attorney, to investigate some $200,000 the City’s ace Treasurer cannot seem to account for.

Lots of luck with that one, fellas.

The Battle for West Buechel

In a desperate last minute move, West Buechel's embattled Mayor Rick Richards (Democrat), has again resorted to illegally abusing the powers of his public office. Richards has sent out a political campaign letter on West Buechel City stationery urging voters to elect a slate of City Council candidates who are in Richards' pocket! 


In Richards' typical clueless style, he asks the voters of West Buechel to elect Council members who are committed to RAISING TAXES!!! The truth of the matter is that Richards is facing a threat that the City Council will REMOVE HIM FROM OFFICE, and Richards is in a panic to have his FRIENDS elected to the Council.

 Who are Richards' friends?? He tells us in his recent letter.

If you want more TAX and SPEND irresponsible City administration, go ahead and vote for Rich Richards' friends. If you want a CHANGE in West Buechel City Hall, VOTE FOR ANYONE ELSE.

West Buechel - Business as usual

Mayor Rick Richard's hyper-accurate and congenial ace bookkeeper reports today that the City's spending for Fiscal Year 2015-2015 was only $391,000 over-budget.

Not so long ago, it was pointed out the City's cash reserves are down about $900,000 since Mayor Rick took office last year. When Mayor Richards was asked about what could be done to stop the City's cash hemorrhage, he said, "Glad you asked. I have he perfect solution."

"Raise taxes."

It appears that council members Janie Mosely and Liz Bierbaum are enthusiastic supports of Mayor Rick's tax and spend and tax some more style.
