Tune in this evening (Tuesday) to WTTW’s “Chicago Tonight” program (Channel 11) to hear my views on the Mayor’s proposed tax and fee increases. Some of my City Council colleagues and I will be participating in a panel discussion beginning shortly after 7:00 p.m.
I am very concerned that the proposed taxes place a disproportionate burden on average Chicagoans. While we all want to avoid cuts in needed services, I share the views of many that the City must take a harder line against waste, fraud and corruption.
Take a look at the show tonight, and let me know what you think about the Mayor’s proposed budget and taxes. Feel free to call me at 773-338-5796, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
