Professional Tax Hiker Cheryl Meyer Has Longer Commute

Assuming she doesn’t work the phone and computer from home, Huntley School District 158 B.E.S.T. campaign organizer is off to Glen Ellyn frequently to help pass Grade School District 89’s $24.8 million referendum.

No.

That’s wrong.

Daily Herald reporter Hafsa Naz Mahmood writes

Cheryl Meyer “says she has no direct involvement in promoting the referendum proposal, noting that would be inappropriate. But she said she has been offering tips.”

“And as part of her job, Meyer said she needs to ‘provide advice on how to present informational campaigns.’”

Meyer is “she’s working part-time as the Glen Ellyn district’s communications assistant” was told.

And, of course, readers of McHenry County Blog know the fun-loving Meyer was paid to work to promote the District 300 $150,000 Advance 300 campaign for a 55-cent tax hike and massive bond issue.

The DuPage County school district is paying Meyer $45 for 15 hours a week–$27,000 so far–the article says.

Guess what else the enterprising reporter found?

For the District 300 campaign, she called herself Campaign Solutions. But the fact that it was Meyer was kept secret for a long time.

“That business first registered with the state on May 9, 2006 — after Meyer completed the work involving District 300. In May 2007, she filed to change the business name to Cheryl L. Meyer Consulting Services Inc.”

And, this gem:

“Meyer said that since her time with the District 300 group, she hasn’t worked on any referendum campaigns and doesn’t plan to do any more in the future.”

There’s a discussion beginning on the message board of Glen-Ellyn.com. No one has linked to McHenry County Blog, however.

There is this nifty link to the Huntley District 158 referendum video that was produced and shown in school rooms. It is on the Election Interference section of Jim and Cathy Peschke’s web site, Citizens for Responsible and Fair Taxes.
