Tom MacMillan The increase in taking more money and the talk about rising taxes will eventually get tiring for people and tax payers will get in line and accept it since there is not other choice because you can not complain to some thing called D97 or the Park District. If there were actual people increasing taxes and taking a lot of money then that would give tax payers some one to talk with and ask why. When people refer to the government, or the Village, it has no name. I like the cartoon's that Marc Stopeck does

Great toon. The "relief" is simply stopping the tax INCREASES, not taking away from anyone. And stopping the hoarding of funds by things like the Park District, who just took the TIF because they needed money for wages, while they are sitting on millions they want to spend on a new Rec building we don't get to vote on. They are sitting on $5 million now, and grabbing more, when not very long ago their entire annual budget was under $2 million a year.
