High taxes

To the Editor:

When I read about the increase in McHenry property taxes with one no vote, I knew who cast that one “no” vote. Sure enough, Andy Glab voted “no” on increasing McHenry city taxes. You can count on Glab to do what he believes is right.

I, like most people, pay a large amount of taxes, and feel like I am going to be taxed out of existence.

Many of us are retired and do not have a steady source of earned income.

I like living in the fine city of McHenry, but I do not like high taxes wherever I live. Most prospective buyers ask to see property tax bills.

There are two outstanding, tax-funded public school districts: fine administrators, quality teachers. I have worked in both districts and served four years on the high school board of education. The parochial schools also rank exceptional quality.
