Tax and Spend Shawn Boldt Must Go in 2ndWard – City Needs New Leadership on Council


 Shawn Boldt’s solution to every problem facing Freeport is more spending coupled with more taxes.  Boldt is quoted in the Journal Standard saying he would like to see tax increases on services.  What does that mean?   A special tax for police services, fire services, street cleaning, and snow removal?   Boldt is part of the problem.   Boldt helped create the mess Freeport is in and now he wants to spend and tax the City’s way out.  We need new people like Peter McClanathan on the Council.  Peter was not part of the problem, but will be part of the solution.
