Please Sign Today - And Show Up Tomorrow

When we ran this graphic nearly a year ago, we had no idea how appropriate it would be today. Sadly, Helen Shiller wants even more of your property tax money, another $58 million which she says is for fish farms and parking lots. But her own spokesperson says the money doesn't have to go for those things once it's approved. 68% of your property tax bill is going for Helen's Follies, rather than to schools, police and city services... and people wonder why the city is going broke.

PLEASE... Stop the Madness:

  • Sign the Petition! TODAY.
  • Ask your friends and family to do the same. TODAY. Every taxpayer in Cook County is having their services diminished by the greedy TIF monster.
  • Show up at City Hall tomorrow, Tuesday, at 1pm, to emphasize that you don't want fish farms: you want more police, more teachers and more city services.


  1. How many folks are planning on attending?

    I'll be down there, for sure.

  2. I'm stuck working out in the burbs. Will you be tweeting again, yo? I appreciated that at the last meeting you attended.

  3. I'm taking a late lunch and will be there.

  4. @ jason: city hall, 2nd floor, council chambers.
