Elect a New Mayor

Herrin, IL

#1 Apr 11, 2013
The city council voted Monday night to enact the tax on electric and gas customers. Mayor Bob Butler said the money is needed to help offset the city's growing operating costs.

Maybe if the Mayor didn't let 500K + get stolen under his watch there wouldn't be a need to tax these utilities!

This is the same kind of thinking that was proven wrong when the 1% tax was passed in Williamson County for school construction. All kinds of people were crying about how no one would shop here now. Marion is still the sales tax leader in southern illinois. Making more than Carbondale and Mt. Vernon.
