Vote against Ogle sales tax

It was brought to my attention that there is a referendum on the upcoming election ballot that would raise our sales tax by 1 percentage point in Ogle County, and [the money] is going to the schools.

I hope that your readers will look at their real estate tax bills and see how much our poor school districts are taking from us already. It seems as if every government body has its hand out asking for more money.

I don’t know about your pocket, but my pocket is just plain empty. This is a sleeper election where funny things happen.

They know turnout is low, so this is the time for zingers.

I happen to know I’m going to be out of town that day, so my wife and I cast our ballots today at the courthouse.

By the way, the referendum is on the backside – don’t miss it.
