NOTE: If you don’t stop the County Board, Bloomington are Normal are next! After that is Illinois pushing teacher pensions to local districts. Think your property taxes are bad now? Just wait!

Taxes are theft by government. Tax increases CUT the money you have to spend on everything else. Government decides how to spend your money, NOT YOU. Government has a long track record of making bad decisions with the money they confiscate from us. McLean County is no different.
The County transparency score actually dropped after the Illinois Policy Institute reported on them. We do not know what they spend money on because they don’t want us to know.
Don’t fall for it’s only another couple of bucks. Bloomington wanted more than a couple of bucks. Normal always wants more than a couple of bucks. The Feds want more than a couple of bucks. The schools want more taxes too. They think you are stupid enough to think it’s only a couple of buck!
Government policies are causing inflation. We get no interest on savings accounts because of government. Government gave us pensions – and NO way to pay them. They certainly care about the people paying the bills!
McLean has higher property taxes than Cook County!
Tell the County Board McLean already has high taxes!
Live within your means – like we have to.
You aren’t entitled to what we work hard for just because you want it!
The Board must be a special kind of stupid talking tax increases right before an election! Too bad all of you aren’t on the ballot.
