A message from John Axtell of Wichita Campaign for Liberty.
Our city council members have, more than once, voted to award no-bid contracts and high-bid contracts to their own campaign contributors, costing voters millions of dollars extra on these contracts. In addition to this huge cost to voters, this practice pollutes the business environment in Wichita as it leaves honest businesspeople wondering if they will get fair access to building permits, to new roads and infrastructure near their property, to police and fire protection, or to liquor licenses for their new restaurant.
Please consider attending next Tuesday’s meeting of the Wichita City Council (as described below), to help put an end to this public/private cronyism At this meeting, Brent Davis and John Axtell are on the Public Agenda to propose reforms to city campaign finance laws, reforms that would end this practice of council members awarding special contracts and favors to their campaign contributors.
