Note Phil Elmore's social media post: March 8, 2017 (International Women's Day) He writes: "Anybody that votes for Lillian hates Belleville and progress. She knows Ajax and vacuum cleaning, that's it. For Belleville sake I hope this is the last we hear from her lunacy.”
Some school board members are saying they “promise” to use some of this new sales tax money to “reduce” property taxes. But a school board member cannot make a promise “forever.” They can change their mind at any time. The purpose of this new sales tax is not to reduce property taxes. It’s to issue bonds, which could increase your property taxes.
Taxpayers and voters, please remember to vote on April 4. Our city cannot afford another four years of the current administration. The precious dollars you earn from which the city extracts should not be expended on lending your money to businesses. If businesses want to stay in business, they need to find a way to do so, but not on the backs of us taxpayers.
