KELLY SAYS SLAMS RAHM EMANUEL'S "PHONEY" TAX, SAYS PROPERTY TAX HIKES ARE COMING
Candidate plans a ward-by-ward petition drive against Rahm’s plan
Chicago, IL - The following is the statement of William J. Kelly, candidate for Mayor of Chicago, opposing Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s new phone tax:
“What this Mayor does not understand is that there isn't a wall built around the city to keep taxpayers in. Today, it’s a phone tax that will cost taxpayers millions of dollars. In February 2015, if Rahm is re-elected, it will be a property tax increase and the taxpayers will leave. But the taxpayers don’t want a $750 million property tax increase and a permanent phone tax hike. Earlier this year, the polls showed Chicagoans were vehemently opposed these tax increases. They aren’t fooled by Mayor Emanuel’s deception or his 'phoney' tax. They know what he intends to do after the election. That is why today I am announcing a ward-by-ward petition drive to get an anti-property tax referendum on the 2015 ballot. The taxpayers of Chicago deserve a voice and I intend to give them one every day through the 2015 mayoral election.”
