140203_berwynflyer-1Chicago—Taxpayers voted ‘NO’ on property tax increases in Tuesday’s primary election, according to Jim Tobin, president of Taxpayers United of America (TUA).
“We soundly beat property tax increase referenda in Berwyn South SD 100, Kane County, Huntley Park District, and the Village of Bull Valley, bringing our total to 203 property tax increase victories since 1977. We also helped taxpayers defeat home rule in Rochester, IL, bringing our home rule victories to 201.”
“Taxpayers sent a clear message that they are fed up with the constant money grab by government bureaucrats. 80% of local taxes fund the huge salaries and benefits of the very bureaucrats who are trying to raise taxes. Taxpayers are tired of taking pay cuts to fund government-employee pay increases.”
“Our political action arm, Tax Accountability, had some significant victories as well. Jim Oberweis’ win in the US Senate primary will square him off against Dick Durbin in November. We are confident that Jim is the candidate to win that race. In his words, ‘I believe that if I win this Senate seat, it means that the Republicans will be taking control of the US Senate and that will change the direction of the country.’”
“With Bruce Rauner winning the Republican gubernatorial race, we can look forward to a solid challenger to Patrick Quinn.”
“This is a pivotal year for Illinois. It’s pretty clear that we need to change things in Springfield quickly. The status quo in Government bureaucrats have bled the state’s taxpayers nearly dry and it is time to set a course of growth and economic freedom. I am confident that we have two of the best candidates to make that happen.”
