The following letter to the editor of the Northwest Herald is published with permission from its author, Steve Verr.
Verr is the GOP candidate for McHenry Township Supervisor.
The message is ‘tax revolt’
That’s my message.
If you feel your tax bill is too low, nepotism and corrupt cronyism is A-OK and taxpayers exist to be fleeced, then keep the “independent” incumbents in McHenry Township.
These insiders, six of whom were appointed, just voted themselves a 6 percent pay hike in October.
Can you do that?
I’m running for McHenry Township supervisor and pledge to vote to slash the supervisor’s compensation from $83,000 to $21,000.
My appointed opponent just voted for a pay raise.
Taxpayers, particularly fixed-income seniors, are taxed out of their homes.
Now, the township and road district are being sued by taxpayers for over-accumulation.
Do you have an over-accumulation?
Remember: “Independents” are incumbents
Vote them out.
Tax accountability (Taxpayers United of America) endorsed every Republican on the township ballot, including me.
I humbly ask for your vote and prayers.
For real change, vote Republican on April 4.
