Get Out and Vote!
Today is the consolidated election in Illinois and we need all taxpayers to get out and vote!
There are well over 100 property tax increase referenda across the state and not a single one of them should pass! Remember that about 80% of local taxes go to salaries and benefits of government employees so it’s really not about the children or even who will pave the roads; it’s about propping up the fat salaries and pensions of the bloated government.
Of particular concern are the following:
Wilmette Park District – Vote No on 2 property tax increase referenda that would raise property taxes $14.5 million!
Westmont CUSD 201 – Vote No to stop a wasteful $19.7 million property tax increase!
Home Rule! Home Rule gives government bureaucrats the right to raise or create new taxes without limit and without taxpayer approval. Home Rule always means higher taxes! Vote no on these Home Rule property tax increase referenda!
Every vote is important in the local elections. You can bet that the government employees will be out in force to vote for the property tax increases that prop up their salaries and benefits. Get out there and protect your income by defeating the property tax increase referenda!
Polls will open at 6 am and will close at 7 pm.
