Taxpayers United of America (TUA), working with local Glenview, IL taxpayers to defeat a massive property tax increase benefitting School Dist. 34, received a hostile response from Mike Korman, a Glenview School Dist. 34 board member. Korman supports the $119,000,000 (plus interest) property tax increase on March 17.

Not happy that some taxpayers dare to oppose property tax increases, Mike Korman released a statement online. “This is NOT a Glenview based entity,” said Korman. “This is a 501(c)(4) entity that’s brags it has defeated 432 referenda in Illinois.”

“This is typical of responses we get from government school board members,” said Jim Tobin, president of TUA. “Like most tax thieves, he obviously expects taxpayers to shut up and take whatever tax increase he dictates. Why else would he think 432 victories for taxpayers against higher property taxes are a bad thing?”

“Bond issues always result in property tax increases,” said Tobin. “We are glad to spread the word about what’s really going on. Unless Glenview taxpayers want even higher property taxes, they should vote no on the $119,000,000 (plus interest) property tax increase on March 17.”

“Eighty percent of local spending goes to salaries and benefits of government employees, and taxes now support much of the lavish, gold-plated pensions they get after early retirement.”

“Taxpayers are always shocked when they are told just how much these retired government school employees get after retirement, especially when they realize it’s their income and property taxes that are subsidizing their luxurious lifestyles.”

“For example, William Attea retired from Glenview SD34 at age 57, and currently gets an astounding annual pension of $225,989. He has received, to date, $4,088,864. His estimated lifetime pension payout is $4,547,622.”

“Taxpayers must defeat all property tax increase referenda on the March 17 primary ballot.”

“And it’s crucial that taxpayers oppose the Income Theft Amendment that Gov. Jay Robert ‘J. B.’ Pritzker put on the November 3 ballot.”

Taxpayers in Glenview, IL, are mobilizing to defeat a massive property tax increase benefitting Glenview School District 34. Glenview SD34 demands from Glenview taxpayers a $119 million property tax increase which is on their March 17 ballot.

The $119 million does not include interest that is also paid with property taxes.

“Bond issues always result in property tax increases,” said Jim Tobin, president of Taxpayers United of America (TUA). “I have fought property tax increases for over 40 years, and won 432 taxpayer referenda victories against tax thieves.”

“Eighty percent of local taxes go to salaries and benefits of government employees, and taxes now support much of the lavish, gold-plated pensions they receive. If Glenview SD 34 reigned in exorbitant government employee payouts, they wouldn’t need a property tax increase.”

“Taxpayers are always shocked when they are told just how much government school employees get after retirement, especially when they realize it’s their income and property taxes that are subsidizing the luxurious lifestyles of former government employees.”

“For example, William Attea retired from Glenview SD34 at age 57, and currently gets an astounding annual pension of $225,989. He has received, to date, $4,088,864. His estimated lifetime pension payout is $4,547,622.”

“Another example is Dorothy Weber, who retired from Glenview SD34 at age 57, and currently gets an annual pension of $217,958. Her estimated lifetime pension payout is $5,813,396.”

“Instead of throwing a property tax increase on already overburdened taxpayers, Glenview SD34 officials should instead reign in their spending. Glenview taxpayers should reject the $119,000,000 property tax increase on March 17.”
