I received this invitation to meet Wichita city council candidate Ken Thomas this Saturday. If other candidates for this office (or other offices) have events they’d like to publicize, please notify me. My contact page is here.
Ken Thomas for City Council
Vote to get Wichita Working Again
It takes all of us to make beneficial changes in our City. You can begin by joining us in a show of support for our candidate Ken Thomas for City Council.
We would like to invite you and your friends to come by to meet Ken Thomas for City Council.
Saturday, January 24, 11:00 am.
400 W. Douglas, Wichita Kansas
Ken believes that. . .
Our streets, roads and bridges need repair.
We are losing jobs to other cities due to failed economic incentives.
Increasing tax dollars are being spent on inefficient plans and duplicated efforts.
For a true “people’s court,” Municipal Court judges should be elected by and accountable to the people, not city officials.
Opposes the use of eminent domain to take our property and giving it to a private developer.
Mr. Thomas is an intelligent man, but not the best candidate for our City Council. There has been allegations of the immigration status of some of his employees and health issues dealing with the rodeo, horses, and the waterway in back of his business property.
For City Council
Vote to get Wichita working again
Let Me Set the Record Straight.
1. The Chisholm Creek Waterway
The Chisholm Creek Waterway behind Treatco is not owned by Treatco.
The City of Wichita has a Water Structure permit NO.CSG-0200 from the Kansas Agriculture Department that is now over
5 years old. The problem of the Creek is the City of Wichita Storm Water Department not finishing out the terms of their permit. If you need more detail call 785-296-2933 ask for Ed Byrd.
2. Health Concerns of the Horses and Rodeo.
Oscar Luna a member of the El Pueblo Neighborhood Association leased the land for the horses and rodeo from F.Y.G. Corporation. Mr. Luna asked me, if I would sit in on a meeting with him and Mark Bradshaw from the Environment and Health Department to discuss what permits Mr. Luna needed. Mr. Luna took out all City permits that were required of him at the time. The outdoor rodeo lasted about four years without any City Citations. When the City passed an ordinance against Outdoor Rodeos Mr. Luna complied.
3. Treatco Employees.
All Treatco employees file their I-9, W-4, K-4 and Employee Survey as required by law. If Treatco asks for any other information Treatco would be violating the applicants Civil Rights. Treatco does not discriminate against any applicants.
Mr. Thomas: May I suggest that you speak out against Obama demagogic attack on the business use of corporate jets. This is causing harm to those involved in their manufacture and, of course, many jobs are being lost. The mayor and city council have been silent on this issue. I find their failure to speak out in defense of a major Wichita industry a disgrace. I think there are many folks here in Wichita, especially those involved in the manufacture of these particular planes, that would take notice of your candidacy if you address this issue.
I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE CITY COUNCIL STOP SPENDING MONEY FOOLISHLY AND PUT OUT THE MONEY FOR TRAINING POLICE DOGS FOR OUR POLICE FORCE. EACH CAR THAT DRIVES AROUND WICHITA TO PROTECT US SHOULD BE ABLE TO HAVE A POLICE DOG
WITH THEM. FOR SOME REASON ALOT OF LAW BREAKERS DON’T MIND RUNNING OR FIGHTING THE POLICEMEN BUT IF HE HAS A DOG WITH HIM THE LAW
BREAKERS ARE NOT AS WILLING TO RESIST. THEY ARE AFRAID OF THE DOG. ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA HAS POLICE DOGS AND THEY REALLY HELP THE POLICEMEN CATCH THE BAD GUY, WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO THAT TOO FOR OUR POLICE. THE TRAINED DOGS ARE WORTH THE MONEY MUCH MORE THAN MANY OF YOUR SPENDING CHOICES IN THE PAST.
