Dear Mr. McKinley:
You and your attorney proved yourselves masters of the fine points of the law and court procedure in the 1999 case,
Kansas City v. Bynum and Birmingham Drainage District. However, the fine points were based on an April 1/ 1916 court
decree located in Book 49, page 303. The court procedure so finely mastered was that the March 28/ 1916 court
decree located in book 48 at page 247 et seq. could not be introduced in the Hearing.
After reviewing "A PROFILE OF THE BIRMINGHAM DRAINAGE DISTRICT", a number of questions were raised which
leads me to believe that you might have been premature in taking such a firm stand on the rights granted to you as the
president of the Birmingham Drainage District by the 1999 Clay County Circuit Court. According to your bio, you are an
expert in tax law, real estate law, drainage district law, litigation & financial institutions as well as being selected by your
peers for "Best of the Bar", award by The Kansas City Business Journal, 2003-2004, a lecturer and contributing author
to the Missouri Bar Assn. Federal Practice Seminar and the Kansas City Bar Assn. , Federal Practice Seminar, as well
as being president of the Birmingham Drainage District.
Your Peers have acknowledged that you are expert in the practice of law. As an expert in the practice of law, with the
records of the Birmingham Drainage District in your pocession, The public taxpayers have a right to know what fine
