A press release from State Representative-Elect Allen Skillicorn:
McHenry County Clerk office fights property tax freeze referendum
State Representative-Elect Allen Skillicorn’s property tax freeze referendum effort has been challenged by McHenry County Clerk Chief Deputy Linda Fitzgerald.
“McHenry County property taxes are way too high.
“Working families and seniors are being forced out of their homes because of skyrocketing property taxes,” Skillicorn continued.
“I find it troubling the Clerk’s office would work against property relief.
“McHenry County Clerk Mary McClellan has already denied our FOIA requests concerning this referendum challenge.
“I have to ask, what is Clerk McClellan and Chief Deputy Fitzgerald hiding?
“We will be appealing with the Attorney General’s office.
“Let’s be crystal clear, the interests that oppose this referendum want to hike our taxes.”
