Letter: Taxed to the max

By on November 7, 2013

Are you kidding me? Another Kaneland tax increase. What is it for this time? As if I didn’t know …

Kaneland School District cannot keep up with the cities. We don’t have the commercial or industrial tax base. Therefore, it goes on the backs of the homeowners. I think it is time to ask for resignations of all board members who voted “yes” to the measure. After all, when was the last time they voted “no” to anything?

Since I drive a bus for District 302, and my pay has been cut three years in a row, I don’t have anymore money. It is time Kaneland lived within its means instead of having an open checkbook mentality. It is so easy to just tax residents more than do your job and balance a budget with what you have.

I would like to invite our two highest administrators to stay at my house for one month. I will show you how to budget with next to nothing. However, you will have to bring your own food and toilet paper, as I cannot afford those items anymore.

The next board meeting is Nov. 11. See you there.
