Kansas City landlords don't have a solution about how to deal with "bad landlords" but they have spent over $75,000 to oppose a reasonable response.
Campaign disclosure reports show that Housing For All - a campaign committee formed to oppose Question #1 - has raised over $75,000 to oppose an initiative petition to require interior inspections of Kansas City, Mo. rental properties.
Most of the funds came from out-of-state sources, primarily a $24,000 in-kind contribution from the Chicago-based National Association of Realtors via American Strategies.
Other major contributors include Kansas City Regional Association of Realtors ($17,500), Missouri Realtors ($10,000) and Apartment Association of Kansas City ($8,000), according to campaign disclosure reports filed with the Missouri Ethics Commission.
