But Its Not Over Yet

Contact one (or many) of the Alders above and tell them to vote for no increase in taxes at the final BOA Budget Vote, on Thursday, May 27, 2010 at 7:00 pm.

Call your alderperson and tell them to hold the line on no tax increase

Monday, May 17th, 2010

There are signs that Alderpersons will ignore a historic petition of over 1000 names and make a compromise. Let them know how you feel about a tax hike in the worst economy since the great depression. Even DeStefano agreed to sign the petition (but then refuse) and sent out campaign literature only a few months ago touting that people can’t take a tax increase in this economy. Has the economy gotten better? Why is there now a proposed increase of between 9-20+%? That range which is often ignored by the media is directly from the Mayor’s own Management and Budget Office. We didn’t compute it, twist it, or massage it. Straight from Management and Budget. The reason they don’t say it to the press, is that they are trying to pull a fast one. Don’t let your alderperson try to sneak away from the true increase for some people of over 20% in this economy.
