Thank You to the Cape Girardeau County Pachyderm Club
I just want to send a quick, bloggy thank you to the Cape Girardeau County Pachyderm Club for having me as their monthly speaker last night. I greatly enjoyed the trip down to Cape, and the talk and discussion with everyone. I learned a great deal from listening to others talk about the interactions between Cape Girardeau city and Jackson, the two towns that make up the substantial majority of the county.
There is a state law authorizing the two towns to share sales tax revenues on certain projects, pretty much like the Saint Louis County sales-tax pool. However, the two cities have yet to utilize that law. Over time, I hope they find ways to do that and share other resources to benefit all their taxpayers. So, thanks to Evan for inviting me to speak, and to everyone in the club for giving me an opportunity to talk about our work here at the Show-Me Institute.
(This is a good time to remind Democratic Party–affiliated clubs that representatives of the Show-Me Institute would be delighted to come speak to your groups, as well.)
