In the village of Antioch it looks as if when your a developer and you come to town ,money talks and bulls*** walks. Now lets see who were the three yea votes?
Since you asked: They did not vote yet, but it looks like the three thinking that voting yes now will solve something that it won't for 4 years are:

McCarty
Pierce
Wolczyz

And of course, Heroner the Mayor.

Wolczyz no longer appears to be in touch with his campaign promises. Not looking beyond the smoke and mirrors being held before him. Thinking that a yes vote now is more important than a yes vote later, even though there would likely be no difference other than $13 million extra dumped on shoppers.

Crosby made a good point the other night. This is not a "voluntary tax" as the Mayor likes to claim. It is a hidden tax that 95% of the shoppers going there will not even realize they are being smashed with. He also made the point that if taxes get too high, shoppers will go across the border where the rate will be 3% less (and probably even more if the state gets their way with even more sales taxes). He also challenged the developers to explain why 1% now is fine, when they said earlier that a 1% tax premium for the 100% benefit of the Village he suggested in 2007 was dismissed then as "impossible because merchants would never sign contracts, being afraid the 1% would drive shoppers away" Not surprisingly, the developers failed to respond to that point.

Good point made. The view on the development coming to Antioch is them trying to get all they can from us. The view on the development going to Wisconsin is they are willing to give back to that community in order to get into it.

Dennis Crosby has been around. He is truly looking out for the best interests of those of us who live in Antioch.

Forget the 1% tax.

No news on that except what was known. The village oked the project and the developer couldnt get the money to proceed. Then the developer came back to try it again with the Antioch taxpayers money , got another ok from our self serving elected officials we had then. The economey went toe's up and they failed again. The woman running for the mayors seat now in town is and was pushing to get it built no matter what.I remember her standing on the sidewalk in town during a Antioch event with a clipboard looking for people to sign it as a petition to the village , all while the developer could not come up with the funds to build. She has always blamed the mayor and the newer board for the failed developers who went toe's up.
