Lower my taxes

To the Editor:

As a taxpayer in Algonquin Township for more than 30 years, I am very disappointed in Supervisor Dianne Klemm’s decision to raise my taxes yet again. During her six years as township supervisor, she has raised my taxes every single year. Doesn’t she get it?

The taxpayers are fed up with increasing property taxes. Property values are going down and our property taxes keep going up. Many other taxing bodies have frozen their property-tax levy, including the county and many villages. The only way to change this tax-and-spend trend is to elect a new supervisor.

I am voting for Marc Munaretto on Feb. 26. He promises to lower the tax levy, and he will develop a sound plan for running the township at the lowest possible cost.
