Inflation Puts Property Taxes Back Into Spotlight

Inflation Puts Property Taxes Back Into Spotlight

High property taxes are crushing families and businesses in Lake County. Already forced to pay the second highest property taxes in the nation, four years of complete Democrat control in Springfield have burdened our people even more -  the average working family in our community has paid $2,288 more in property taxes since JB Pritzker, and Springfield Democrats pushed their agenda through. And it will be more of the same with my opponent, Mary Edly Allen. With inflation hitting 9% this year, local governments can now increase property taxes even more than usual. I demand that local government officials in Lake County oppose any burdensome property tax increases on taxpayers so that working families in our communities can keep more of their hard-earned money
