Monday, December 13, 2010: the Greater Kansas City Jobs with Justice held its annual “Scrooge of the Year” fundraiser at the Visions Reception Hall. The winner of the 2010 KC Scrooge of the Year award was Rex Sinquefield, Missouri Billionaire who is responsible for Missouri Prop A. This legislation has the potential to remove the Earnings Tax in Kansas City and St. Louis which will cause great shortfalls in the General Fund balances for the two largest cities in Missouri.
Mr. Sinquefield was nominated by the International Association of Fire Fighters Local No. 42 and won with 2600 votes. The second place winner goes to the recently elected Secretary of State, for the State of Kansas, Mr. Kris Kobach who had 1990 votes.
Kansas City Jobs with Justice raised approximately $5,000 at this event and would like to thank everyone who participated this year.
