Letter: Say no to more tax hikes for anything

New Trier High School District 203 conducted a “scientific phone poll” in June to see how residents would feel about paying to renovate the school. The fact that they took the poll before the property tax bills came out makes me wonder if they were being smart or if they weren’t too smart.

Would they get these same results if they took the poll now? Are they hoping that putting out the news that everybody wants to pay higher taxes would mute any thought of resisting the inevitable?

I will not support any tax hikes for anything anymore. I don’t care if it is to feed starving children and stray dogs. Our governments, state and federal, have shown no sense in managing other people’s money, and I won’t give them a penny more than I have to. Sorry, New Trier, I have no more left for you after the state and feds are done.
