School District 145, Freeport, Illinois Cannot Be Trusted – District Says Vote on March 18 for a 1% Sales Tax Increase and Your Property Taxes Will Go Down – Believe It and I have Winning Lottery Ticket to Sell You!

Freeport School District 145 is spearheading an effort to add an additional 1% to the sales tax to benefit schools in Stephenson County. Freeport’s District, being the largest, would benefit the most from the additional tax. If passed, the additional tax would raise the Freeport rate to 9.25%. Statements by officials of this District carry no legal weight. Reduce your property taxes one year and double them next year – that is the bureaucratic way. The superintendent and her assistants will move on to their next victim after the Freeport School District has been irreparably harmed. Freeport is a failing district, and more money is not the answer. Let’s spend more time educating the children of this District (not figuring out how to avoid making up “cold” days), and worry less about how you can raise more money from the already overtaxed citizens of this community.
