If the alderman tries to change the subject by focusing on why they had to vote for a 5.7% increase, again, politely and respectfully ask the alderman to specifically answer what you, the person paying the bills gets for that 5.7% increase.
I’m dying to hear their response. The same holds true for Franklin School Board members. Ask them what YOU, the taxpayer, gets for that 5.9% increase.
YOU don’t get anything.
Administrators and employees get salaries and benefits addressed thanks to YOU, the taxpayers.
But what do YOU get from these big tax increases that Aldermen and School Board members are patting themselves on the backs over?
Nothing except a big fat bill.
Thanks School Board members.
Thanks for taking more of my hard-earned money right out of my wallet.
