Red-light cameras in Schaumburg screech to a halt

The 9 studies that I originally presented to the Schaumburg Village board and Mayor Al Larson on Sept 23, 2008 can be found here. http://www.schaumb lic-safety/what-ar e-red-light-camera s-really-used-for/  (Jul 14, 2009 | post #12)

Schaumburg Needs TIF Property Tax Transparency Reforms | ...

My "hidden" agenda is to provide Tax Relief and Transparent Government for the people of Schaumburg. Judging from your comments you don't have any complaints with the policy being promoted, just the individual doing the debating. I don't know who you are or if I have ever even met you. I have no idea why you would dislike me personally. But that's irrelevant to the topic at hand. Instead let's focus on the policy issues being addressed in the article. Do you have anything to say about lowering property taxes or increasing government transparency? Or do you just want to annoynomously attack me because you know you have no defense against the Village of Schaumburg's lack of transparency and ridiculous $120 million tax increase? http://www.schaumb es/villages-spendi ng-whack/  (Jul 10, 2009 | post #4)

Schaumburg Needs TIF Property Tax Transparency Reforms | ...

What numbers are wrong? What type of personal transparency are you referring to? Did you have any policy questions or assertions about this story? Your post didn't say anything about the TIF district story. Would you prefer that TIF districts not have comprehensive transparency and taxpayers remain in the dark about them? I don't have a hidden agenda, I just want government reforms for more transparency, and ending of eminent domain and taxpayer abuse. There could be nothing more clear than that.  (Feb 18, 2009 | post #2)
