Freeport Mayor To Give State of City Speech Monday, March 16 – The Real Question is Who Can Afford The Electricity to Watch the Speech?

The Freeport City Council will meet at 6:00 pm on Monday, March 16 at 524 W. Stephenson Street, 3rd floor.  If you have Comcast Cable, go to channel 17 and you will see Mayor Gitz’s speech live.


While the Freeport School District and other taxing bodies are looking for ways to raise additional taxes from the citizens of Freeport, take a look at your ComEd bill for March.  Even adjusting for the fact that there are two months of supply charges on the bill, your bill is up over 25%.   Former Freeport Mayor Gaulrapp is now public relations manager at ComEd.  It’s nice to see how he transitioned from a government job to a utility regulated by the government.  I guess that is the American way.  When you work in the government, you certainly don’t want to offend those you are regulating or doing business with since some day you may want to work for them.   Think about how that affects your decision making when you are in government!
