WELCOME!

Thanks for taking the time to visit the site.  As Overland Park approaches 60 years old the actions taken in the next few years will have a lasting impact on the future of our city.  I feel this is an important time for the residents to voice their opinions, provide input, and help shape our future.

Be sure to visit the pages above to learn about the issues and myself.  Come back often or sign up for the news feed as it will be continuously updated with the latest information impacting Overland Park and the election.

You will also find a contact page where I highly encourage you to provide any feedback or ideas you have for city council or myself.  With your vote and residents input I know we can lead Overland Park forward without leaving the residents behind resulting in one of the greatest cities to live for everyone!

TODAY IS THE DAY OUR COUNCIL MUST LISTEN!

Overland Park City Council including my opponent Ward 6 Councilman Rick Collins has refused to pass a proposal to allow residents to speak at council meetings. Well, today is the day he must listen. LET'S SPEAK LOUD, CLEAR, AND IN FORCE and elect SCOTT HAMBLIN!

I promise to immediately vote to pass policy allowing you to voice your opinion to the council.

I also promise to work WITH residents instead of against them. I will listen to what you want, need, and desire then act for us. Lets lose the status quo of thinking the council knows what is best for you. This has gone on way too long. Our Ward 6 council member can no longer continue to vote AGAINST his own constituents! He can no longer "consider" issues then suprise vote against you like a true politician.

Just in the recent past Rick Collins has fought against his constituents in almost every location. You know who you are,

-Ryans Run - The Wilderness - Morse Village - Arbor View - Wolf Valley - The Executive Estates at 175th & Antioch, and many more.

If you have not yet had him use his "experience" as a career politician to tell you whats best for you, consider yourself lucky and avoid being next!

The next four years are critical and we need someone to stand up for us, the residents of Ward 6. Someone to listen and act on our behalf, not on a lobbyists behalf lowering the quality of your neighborhoods and place we call home. Let's take control back from a career politician and give it back to the residents!

VOTE SCOTT HAMBLIN TODAY!

TAX INCENTIVE LISTS

TAX INCENTIVE LISTS -

Notice the well known restaurant. We've all been there and witnessed how empty and blighted the place is. How could they ever survive without 5 million of your dollars? (All sarcasm if you didn't catch that). How does that sit in your stomach (no pun intended)

I've been asked many times for "proof" of the giveaways or just documents showing they are actually doing it. Here are a couple to help give you some numbers. Keeping in mind, these are a little dated and well before BluHawk and other incentives in progress. Then of course there is the $200 million that will go to Brookridge if my opponent and a few others remain in office.

I usually quote around $500 million of your tax money has been given away by this council as that is the latest round number I've been provided. However, even as this shows well above $500 million BluHawk hasn't even hit the list. Brookridge is also attempting to get pushed thru before any seats change and lobbyists still hold your checkbook. By that time we would be looking at $1 Billion and rapidly climbing with no end in sight.

WE MUST TAKE BACK THE CHECKBOOK THIS TUESDAY!

SIGNIFICANT INFORMATION FOR HOMEOWNERS!

IF YOU OWN A HOME YOU NOW HAVE A GREAT REASON TO VOTE!

ADVANCE VOTE NOW!

                  

YOU MAY ADVANCE VOTE IN PERSON NOW!

The City of Overland Park and developers currently have their eyes set on Ward 6. Over the next four years they will be attempting to commercialize every open inch. Our vote as residents is extremely important this election. Status quo tells us that we will not have any say in what and when development happens. As too many of us are aware, we would be considered lucky to even know what is being built. This election may be the only way we have any control over what the area we call home is four years from now. We must show up at the polls.

- We need a resident free of influence to represent US and not a heavily influenced professional politician representing
commercial interests.

- I promise to fight with you for what we need and what we deserve.

- I promise to vote NO and represent the residents interests on what we do not want.

- I promise the end the all too common surprise developments that are shovel ready before you even know about the plan.  This information needs to be distributed well before the required public meeting where they pretend to take your input on an all but completed development.

10 REASONS OVERLAND PARK NEEDS YOUR VOTE!

10 SIMPLE YET SIGNIFICANT REASONS OVERLAND PARK NEEDS YOUR VOTE NOV 5TH!

-$500 Million in tax incentive giveaways in the last 5 years

-$147 Million proposed for Brookridge that the developer wants approved before the end of the year in the event the public hopefully ends the giveaways this Nov 5th. The new council would still have ways to stop it next year so your vote is critical!

-Overland Park is currently operating on our reserve funds due to giving away revenue and simple reckless spending. This leave us extremely at risk in the event of a recession.

-Sales tax exceeds 10% in many areas of the city due to more developer giveaways by allowing them to keep portions of the sales tax.

-With current spending levels, my opponents has said he can see no other choice but to ask the residents to increase their own mill levy as soon as 2020. Simply to pay for their own mismanagement.

-We MUST allow residents to speak at council meeting and let their voice be heard. If this council was going to do that, there wouldn't be excuses, it would already be done.

-We must return to a council free of political influence by both lobbyists and other politicians.

-Road maintenance continues to fall behind and to complicate this matter the 1/8 sales tax that funds roads is set to expire this next term. How much are they going to ask for this time after letting developers push sales tax to almost 12% in some areas? More Chip Seal? Is that what we want?

-Our Police force is significantly understaffed and this council has kicked that can down the road for years. This can not continue. Response times in Ward 6 have been reported as high as 15 minutes due to times of "blackouts" where not one single officer is available for the call. -

Last but not least, OUR CURRENT LEADERSHIP* DOES NOT EVEN RECOGNIZE THESE ISSUES. THEY CAN'T SOLVE PROBLEMS THEY DON'T SEE! Listen to them campaign. They have zero plans to address any of these issues. According to them they have made everything perfect and continue to press on with ForwardOP, which includes plans such as a $350 million dollar "green" city hall. I am all for FowardOP, however, I am also all for owning a Ferrari on a government salary....

CANDIDATES THAT ARE INFLUENCE FREE AND STAND FOR RESPONSIBLE SPENDING OF YOUR TAX MONEY...

WARD 1 - HOLLY GRUMMERT

WARD 2 - ROGER TARBUTTON

WARD 3 - STEPHAN GLETZER

WARD 4 - DAN OSMAN

WARD 5 - DR. FARIS FARASSATI (INCUMBENT)*
