Hi. My name is John Murphy. I’m running for Jackson County Legislature 2nd District At Large. And I have a plan to fortify Jackson County. My goal is to protect families and seniors from runaway property tax increases. We are experiencing hyperinflation not seen in 40 years which will cause a dramatic increase in property taxes. Families and seniors living on a fixed income will face severe economic hardship. I will support limiting increases to property assessments.
I will advocate for transparency, fiscal responsibility and be a budget hawk. There has been a lack of respect for our first responders from many of our elected politicians. We are a nation of laws, when our laws and those empowered to enforce them are not respected and the rule of law no longer exists. Without the rule of law and law enforcement we cease to have rights and will only have anarchy. As an elected legislator, I will fund and support our frontline law enforcement officers in the sheriff's department.
I believe in facilitating Jackson County's success and will be an advocate for the county.
I have a background in the energy industry and logistics and bring a business acumen.
I believe Jackson County has many great opportunities ahead and I want to help Jackson County Missouri make the right choices with the right plans to succeed long term.
I ask for your vote on August 2nd.
