Please join us for our annual meeting on Tuesday, November 13th from 5:30-7:30. The meeting will take place at 1000 Walnut, Suite 1400, KCMO, 64106. We will hear remarks from Jackson County Sheriff Darryl Forte and another invited guest.
The CCP Board of Directors met recently and agreed to endorse and oppose several initiatives on the November ballot. The Board is in opposition to all of the Jackson County charter questions and is calling for a charter review commission to meet at the start of next year.
As part of our recommendation, we are calling on the County Executive to include a member of CCP on any future commission. While we appreciated the efforts of some members of the County Legislature to have a couple of additional public hearings related to these changes, we would like to see a more deliberative and thorough commission process to address future charter changes.
The Board also agreed to endorse Missouri Constitution Questions 1 and 2 (Clean Missouri and Medical Marijuana) and Missouri Propositions B and D (Minimum Wage and Highway Funding Increase).
