It is headlined,
Kishwaukee Valley Water Authority
Property Rights vs. Government Control
To the left of a marked sample ballot is
The Kishwaukee Valley Water Authority is all about more government and nothing about property rights!
Then in reverse print comes an unattributed quote from an “Attorney for A-LAW, January 30, 2007, at the DeKalb County Courthouse.”
Property Owners Have No Rights
Needless to say, this quote is hotly contested by the Alliance for Land, Agriculture and Water.
The piece goes on to complain that the referendum will “create a whole new layer of government” and, then, quotes Ronald Reagan:
Government always finds a need for whatever money it gets.
This side concludes with a “Say NO”! Kishwaukee Valley Water Authority.
There is a web site address below: www.NoWaterAuthority.com between “Get the facts!” and “Vote NO!”
Enlarge the mailing by clicking on it and see if you can find the subliminal message.
It’s in the same color as what’s behind the Reagan’s quote.
- Protect our Farms
- Defend Private Property
- Maintain our Water Rights
- Preserve Local Control
- Stop Property Tax Increases
- Conserve our Water
If the opponents had the money and the time for a rebuttal, I’m sure it would be fun to read, especially the part about the water authority law not permitting the authority to regulate agricultural water rights.
