Millions of Americans voted Tuesday against big government spending and higher taxes. Tonight, the Franklin Common Council will ignore that very loud, very clear message.
Remember any alderman who votes for a big tax increase and don’t forget what he/she does to you come Election Day.
UPDATE: A clarification. The Common Council tonight recommended a 2.99% property tax levy increase. There will be a public hearing on the budget November 16 at 6:30. City Hall will be packed with city employees urging a tax increase. It's up to citizens to show up to demand fiscal responsibility. If that doesn't happen, aldermen, like mine, Kristen Wilhelm will cave and vote for a property tax increase. Following the hearing, aldermen vote on the budget and increasing your taxes. Unless you show up and fight, your city taxes are going up. My guess is there's a 99% chance the Common Council will raise your taxes.
