About the decision by the Platte County Board of Commissioners to withhold federal CARES money from the Platte County Board of Health and the City of Kansas City: While this decision for the Kansas City share does not affect the entire Platte County area, the health department does. However, over 50% of Platte County is in Kansas City and the other counties that also are in Kansas City are sharing the CARES money as directed.
Apparently the Platte County commissioners are ruling on personal grudges and friendships instead of governing for the people of Platte County.
I hope everyone voting on election day will remember.
