Illinois Pensions You Should Know About

Taxpayers United of America recently highlighted Illinois’ pension problem in an article.  I found it so disturbing that I wanted to share it with you and it is also relevant as I speak with many of you about our property tax increases.  Pensions are a big deal as they are the number one factor crippling Illinois.  Remember, McHenry County is the 29th most taxed county… in the nation!

McHenry County is the 29th worst county in America to live when it comes to taxes.  Why on earth are people wanting to raise them higher?

These are the numbers – does anyone deserve a pension like this?  $400k?  We have a lot of problems here in McHenry County and in Illinois… and then we have do deal with this.  We should forward this to all of our elected representatives.  We have to make them realize just how bad this really is.

Please share this via your social media networks.  The taxpayers of Fox River Grove, Cary, Algonquin, Crystal Lake, and the rest of McHenry County need to know.  You cannot make this stuff up.
