Walsh Freedom, Steve Balich, & 46 volunteers walk to make a difference in taxpayers lives
Radio Host, Political Activist, Former Congressman Joe Walsh came to Homer Township Sunday July 26th to make a difference in not only the lives of the people in Homer Township but those throughout the State of Illinois. Walsh Freedom walked door to door to get signatures in support of the Property Tax Referendum initiated by Steve Balich. There were 46 citizens from as far as Lake County joining with those from Will, and Dupage Counties. The group got 640 Signatures, putting the total number to Date at 1320. The Goal is 2000 signatures but 3000 would be icing on the cake. Former Congressman Joe Walsh will get with Steve Balich and do one more effort to finish the job getting it on the ballot. Balich indicated that there are local people getting signatures that have not turned them in yet. Balich is confident there will be enough signatures to get on the March 15th 2016 primary ballot.

This Referendum in Homer Township is just the beginning. Every Township, City, and County will have someone believe they can get this on the Ballot in their area. Once this passes others will follow. The people will be one step closer to taking back control of their government. The issue is not about Political Parties, rather it is a people issue benefiting every citizen. Does a Republican family suffer loss of income the same as a Democrat when Property Taxes are increased? Does the Senior on a fixed income care which political party raised their property tax? Does a struggling Business care which group is increasing their cost of doing business?

In a Representative Democracy citizens allow others, usually elected officials, to represent them in government processes including property tax increases. Although this is an Advisory Referendum, meaning the taxing Bodies can ignore the will of the people, it is the strongest statement citizens can make to these officials, clearly stating the will of the citizens. This is our opportunity to make a difference and make our voice heard. If a person on a Board goes contrary to the will of the people that person needs to be voted out.

The Petition for the march 15th Ballot reads Shall each taxing body located partially or wholly within Homer Township be required to seek voter approval by referendum prior to increasing its annual total property tax Levy? Yes or No

I want to thank all the Volunteers, Walsh Freedom, Americans for Prosperity, and joe Walsh for all their help. We are getting close to the goal and will achieve it. God Bless everyone!
