Mayor Lucas Introduces Ordinance to Place KCPD Local Control Referendum on November Ballot

An ordinance to include a ballot question on local control of the Kansas City Police Department on the November election ballot was introduced by Mayor Quinton Lucas on June 25. The proposed ballot question would read as follows:

Shall the City of Kansas City, Missouri establish as a City legislative priority in the Missouri General Assembly the pursuit of a state legislative or referendum action that will return Mayor and City Council-led local control to the Kansas City Police Department rather than the current control of the Kansas City Police Department by a committee comprised of four members appointed by the Governor of Missouri and an additional position held by the Mayor of Kansas City?
