Other Taxing Issues - Library Expansion

Post-Election Analysis
written for the Warrensburg Free Press and substantially published in its second issue, 4/11/02

Downtown Warrensburg was “rescued” by the voters from other areas. While the library issue carried all the Warrensburg precincts with 60% of the vote, it needed much more. The rest of the county opposed it; Lafayette County was adamant with a 75% NO vote. So the Warrensburg branch of the library will remain as a downtown hub for a while longer. A number of theories have been proposed for why the issue lost, when a tax three times as large passed. Among the comments heard from people who voted against it were: It is apparent that a great deal of redesign and rethinking will have to go into the library issue before it is resubmitted to the voters.
