Balich fights for Homer Township City of Lockport taxpayers

My name is Steve Balich. As candidate for Will County Board, I will represent you. I have a proven record fighting taxes. In 2006 I answered the call by taxpayers in Homer Township City of Lockport complaining about being taxed by Homer Road District who did none of the work and City of Lockport that did all the work. After spending extensive time at the Tax Extension Department at County I understood the tax raised by Homer Road Levy was split with City of Lockport, but City of Lockport did all the work. The other Townships in City of Lockport have the same situation getting tax money for doing nothing.
After forming a committee to address the problem, we were joined by Lockport Citizens for fair Taxation. Jack Jarrett, Myself, and Ron De Sando met with The Homer Road Commissioner who promised to address the problem. We met with City of Lockport Officials, and reported back to the Homer Township Board. By 2008 we realized that implementing an equitable fix would take State changes to the process, which went nowhere.
Today Mike De Vivo is the only Township Road Commissioner within the City of Lockport that returns substantial funds above the legal split to the City of Lockport. This does not directly help the taxpayers of Homer Township City of Lockport, but does at least lessen the tax burden on everyone in City of Lockport. The other Townships within City of Lockport need to follow the example of Homer Township. The other Township Road Districts in City of Lockport are getting Tax Dollars for doing nothing.

Obama Administration will now make law for Morality

Sunday morning, I was at St. Bernards Church in Homer Glen. A letter from the Bishop of Joliet was read. It made my blood boil to think that our Federal Government thinks it can tell private entities what kind of insurance they must provide. In essence they are now mandating MORALITY. They are telling a Catholic Church, Hospital, Grade School, University, etc. that they must purchase medical insurance for employees that is contrary to their Religious Doctrine. The Government is saying they don’t care what you want to buy with your money. The Government is saying you will buy what we tell you to.
This is the first assault by the Federal Government through National Health Care that has caught the attention of a large voting bloc. We Christians have varied opinions on conception, abortion, and contraception, but we stand firm for life. We don’t like the concept of the Government forcing their value of life through administrative rules. Medical procedures for seniors are at risk because their value of life is less, and at the other side of the Bell Curve, infants are as valuable to society as the seniors. Children with disabilities also lack life value in this government attack through National Health Care.
What gives this Administration the right to impose their morality on the American People? Please contact your Federal Representatives:
