  1. An opportunity to ask Jack why he again failed to address the issue of compensation in the public union sector.

    His recent chairmanship of a commission to reduce governments in Illinois was a total waste of taxpayer dollars at a time when we should be reducing the tax burden on the residents.

    The problem with governments in Illinois, other than nepotism, crony capitalism, and outright illegal activity, is not that we have too many employees in the public sector (when compared to other states) or even that we have too many units of government.

    The problem is what we pay those people in the public sector and the very lucrative pensions they receive!

    How about the State of Illinois place an income tax of fifty percent on all PUBLIC pensions over one hundred thousand dollars per year?

    Pension reduction is a Constitutional issue but the tax on income is something the Democrats are real good at!!

  2. I’m thinking Franks is feeling the heat from Reick’s campaign.

    He’s going to try and buy votes with ice cream cones.

    Franks needs to have a plan to reduce union costs, pensions, and the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law.

    So our taxes are in line with our house values.

    Not going in the opposite direction like they are now.
