Speak against District 15

To the Editor:

City of McHenry, get ready to get taxed to the grave by District 15 – a 9.72 percent property-tax increase.

If you do not call or go to the meeting Monday, you have nobody to blame but yourself.

A 9.72 percent increase for a district that is in the black. Who are they kidding? Hopefully, not you – $1.87 million a year from your pocket to the teachers’ retirement.

Come on, and wake up, McHenry. This school district already takes 43 percent of your property taxes. Call the district or show up to the meeting. Otherwise, get ready for another big tax increase, and it’s not my fault. I did not see or hear from you at the District 156 levy hearing, where the increase only went up 2.75 percent because I went and voiced my opinion. How about you?
