Letter: Speak out before D155 tax levy vote

To the Editor:

Community High School District 155’s board is voting to finalize yet another tax hike upon us all. With decreasing student population, they want more money to educate fewer and fewer students. At least five of the board members just don’t get it. 

It may be hard, but I’m asking some of you folks who have lost your homes to come and speak at the next board meeting and share your pain, put a face on the pain that continues to be inflicted by our elected officials through seemingly endless tax increases. 

Please attend the next meeting at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 21 at 1 S. Virginia Road, Crystal Lake. You will have three minutes to speak.
