Letter to the Editor

Fellow Citizens,

I want to pass on some information that members of the Wildwood Lakes Homeowners Association learned at a meeting held on March 11. Candidates for the upcoming Raytown election for mayor and Ward 2 alderman accepted invitations to come to the meeting to tell us why they are qualified to be elected at the polls on April 5.

Following the presentation of each candidate, the audience asked questions of current mayor, David Bower,and his opponent, Anwar Khan. We learned from Mayor Bower that the several new businesses moving to Raytown will not cause a negative impact to Raytown’s tax dollars. In fact, these new businesses will be enhancing sales tax dollars for Raytown. In addition, due to the present administration’s efforts, more than several millions of dollars have been given to the city from federal and state grants for projects such as the Center Gateway at Raytown Road and Gregory, the Woodson street overlay, storm and sanitary sewer projects, etc.

Candidate Anwar Khan came across as a nice, pleasant-natured gentleman, but one who seemed to be misinformed about what is going on in Raytown. He made unsupported negative statements and offered nothing at all about how he was going to make Raytown continue to grow. I understand that public records reflect that Mr. Khan has no record for having voted in Raytown elections, despite the fact that he has lived here for more than 30 years. Mr. Khan is supported by two major organizations wanting to see him in the driver’s seat as our city’s mayor. I invite you to conduct an Internet web search of www.ak4raytown.com and see for yourself.

Following the candidates departure from the meeting, members in attendance were100% in favor of David Bower being returned to office and were amazed that Mr. Khan wishes to become our next mayor with so little to offer. In fact the members found it difficult to understand what Mr. Khan was trying to say due to his heavy accent and were puzzled with the statements he made that, when asked, he could not verify.

I truly feel that most Raytown Citizens think David Bower is a shoo-in to be re-elected to another term as mayor and don’t think it is necessary to go to the polls to vote on April 5. This election in not expected to draw more than 18 to 20% to the polls due to voter apathy. BIG PROBLEM!!!!! If you do not go to the polls and vote Bower back into office, we could face a devastating upset because Mr. Khan will have his supporters out in force.This is my town and I want to see Raytown continue to move forward, not backward. PLEASE GO TO THE POLLS ON APRIL 5.
