Woodstock Home Rule Targeted

A press release from Voters in Action and Taxpayers United of America:

Home Rule is Home Ruin

Special Census, Home Rule and You

Home Rule Voters in Action promoWOODSTOCK, IL – The Woodstock City Council has approved a special census with an eye toward certifying that the city has grown to more than 25,000 residents.

If this is true, this would make Woodstock a “Home Rule Unit” and would substantially change the rules for how the city creates or changes taxes and fees in the city.

Given that Woodstock residents pay among the highest taxes in the state, and perhaps the country, citizens were concerned and Voters In Action were engaged.

Leadership from Voters In Action reached out to Jim Tobin of Taxpayers United of America and have joined forces to present “Home Rule is Home Ruin”.

The presentation, given by Mr Tobin, will take a closer look at what changes Home Rule brings and how they will affect local taxpayers.

  • Where: Woodstock Public Library, 414 W Judd St, Woodstock, IL 60098
  • When: Wednesday, May 11, 7:00 PM

The public is welcome. There is no charge for the event

Woodstock Home Rule Targeted — 4 Comments

  1. Anything Jim Tobin is against is, ipso facto, a toxic poison for taxpayers; so I back the anti-“Home Rule” effort for no other reason than Tobin and TU is against it!

    The local group was wise to enlist him!

    He’s done more than anybody I can think of to fight the wretched taxoholics of Madiganistan– republirats and democrats alike, who have ruined Illinois.

    Woodstock mayor-commissar Brian Sager, a mephitic libtard of the highest water, is diligently working to create his own little Woodstock Soviet, complete w/ “LGBT-friendly” propaganda.

    He masquerades as a “Republican Committeeman” in Greenwood Township Pct 6 http://results.enr.clarityelections.com/IL/McHenry/59392/163951/Web01/en/summary.html …. yet he served as Jacko Franks’ fawning Fundraser Host in 2015: http://mchenrycountyblog.com/2015/09/22/franks-fundraiser-sat/

    No wonder the McHenry County Republican party was so sickly w/ creepy ‘change-agents’ like the toxic Sager ruining things from within like the party-pathogen he is!

    I don’t mind honest libtards who openly spew their dreamy tommy-rot … their damage is rather limited ….. but moles like Sager are the real danger to liberty.

    They have a wacky scheme to change society.

    Ask Mayor sager about his sub rosa efforts to flood Woodstock with Section 8 ‘relocatees’ from Chicago and elsewhere.

    He must be outed for what he REALLY stands for and envisions!

  2. He has a lot of secret agendas. I’d like to ask him about his trips to Mexico, the boyfriend that works in local govt. and his mother that works for local govt.

    His plans to consider hiring “an old friend” for Police Chief that the county couldn’t wait to rid itself of.

    Oh yes, this Mayor (and friends) is insidious and the city of Woodstock’s residents wonder why its on the skids?

    This plan for a “special census” targeting only new neighborhoods is a ploy to inaccurately account for the real population so the City Council can have more power to raise taxes, sales taxes, gas taxes etc.

    Guess the shameful 4.67% isn’t enough for all their crap management.

    They won’t be counting all the houses that are empty, waiting to sell so their owners can migrate to the new neighborhood, houses abandoned and foreclosures.


    and they’re paying $90,000 for this method of hoodwinking the citizens of Woodstock!

  3. Kinda like the town charging you for a rope they plan to hang you with!
