No Property Tax Increase is Temporary for Glenbard SD 87!
Chicago – “Glenbard SD 87 government bureaucrats are trying to pass a $35 million property tax increase referendum that will keep your property taxes from decreasing when the current bond debt is paid off,” stated Jim Tobin, president of Taxpayers United of America (TUA).
“While home values have decreased, state income taxes have increased 67%, and Social Security tax has increased 44%, government school bureaucrats insist that you should give them even more money!”
“This is nothing more than a money grab by greedy government bureaucrats who will tax everything they can to prop up their own salaries and pensions. 309 District 87 employees make over $100,000 for less than 9 months a year.”
“Illinois already has the second highest property taxes in the country and an unemployment rate of 8.6%. SD 87 government bureaucrats should take the pay cut this time instead of taxpayers. These government bureaucrats enjoy higher than average pay, premium healthcare, early retirement, lavish pensions, and nearly iron-clad job security.”
“Here is a sampling of SD 87 employees who make over $100,000: 309 total, 3 art, 3 woodworking, 3 drama, 14 Drivers Ed, 4 music, 7 Librarians, 2 nurses, 27 Phys. Ed, 30 Learning behavior specialists, 2 vocal music.”
“So why are taxpayers in Glenbard SD 87 being asked to take yet another pay cut? This is not about the kids. This is about propping up the bloated bureaucracy that sucks wealth away from taxpayers for the purpose of propping up the government school cabal.”
“Taxpayers can download a copy of our flyer at HERE and get the word out to friends and neighbors, that temporary property tax increases can be temporary by voting NO to $35 million more on March 18.”
