Proposed Frankfort Sales Tax Hike Focus Of Village Forums

Author: Editor

Two special public meetings will be held before November's election to discuss the referendum to raise Frankfort's sales tax. These forums will give residents a chance to ask village officials questions about the proposed measure on the Nov. 6 ballot that could see the village's sales tax increased by 1 percent.

 

The meetings about the village's upcoming sales tax referendum will be at the Village Hall on the following days:

9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 20

6:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 22

Frankfort's sales tax is currently the lowest among Lincoln-Way communities at 7 percent. For comparison, Mokena's sales tax is 7.5 percent, and New Lenox, is 9 percent.

Moustis' Double-Dipping Textbook Worthy: Gallagher

Author: Editor

You have to hand it to Jim Moustis. He's a pretty smart cookie. If he wrote a book, I'd buy it. 

Unlike some questionable politicians who navigate legal loopholes to get a little somethin' somethin' extra, Moustis is an overachiever. He not only double dips, but he double-double dips.

As a the Will County Board Speaker from District 2, Moustis advocated that the board vote to drop the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund (IMRF). In fact, board meeting notes from 2016 show he didn't just advocate for it, he was salivating for it.

Is 2018 the 'Year of the Woman' in Will County?

Author: Editor

At the main campaign office of the Will County Democrats in Joliet, a small army of volunteers has been working the phones for the Nov. 6 election. 

Armed with sophisticated voter calling technology, headsets and plastic cups full of cheddar cheese popcorn, the volunteers on this evening were talking to residents who had requested mail-in ballots to see where they stood on the issues.

 There was one striking similarity among the vast majority of volunteers on one recent weeknight: They almost all were women.

How Trump Betrays ‘Forgotten’ Americans

Author: Editor

Donald Trump promotes himself as a friend of “forgotten” workers, but in ways large and small his administration has undermined what has traditionally been the biggest champion of workers: labor unions. 

Most recently, he used his authority as president to deliver a harsh Labor Day message to the 2.1 million people who work for him, canceling pay raises for the civilian employees of the federal government. In May, he issued three executive orders to weaken federal employees’ unions by, among other things, limiting the subjects they can bargain over. (On Aug. 25, a judge ruled that this move violated federal law.) In March 2017, Mr. Trump signed a law repealing an executive order signed by President Obama that sought to keep the federal government from awarding contracts to companies that violate laws protecting workers’ right to unionize, as well as wage and job safety laws.
