Dear Shelby County: Please be aware that your money is not going up to Chicago nor to Cook County.
Both are the only negative tax receivers in the state, meaning they are supporting the rest of Illinois at the expense of their own areas.
Divorcing yourself from them means your taxes are going to explode, and their standards will be able to go up because they aren’t supporting you.
Your next argument is that you want your voice heard. What heard? How is your voice not being heard? Just what is being ignored? It’s a meaningless phrase with no substance.
When you start your argument with a lie and then add a meaningless phrase, you are aiming your argument at the gullible who will swallow anything.
