Enough is enough

Peoria neighbors, the Peoria schools are once again asking us to support an overriding of their budget. If you look at your recent property tax bill you will see that we are still paying hundreds of dollars per year for previous overrides. 

The new one they are asking for is huge. By my calculations, a $200,000 secondary valuation of your home will add another $400 or so per year to your property taxes for the next six years. Small businesses will be hit even harder. 

Enough is enough. Let them work within their budget, we all have to. Vote no on the school budget override.
