I, the undersigned state that I am a Lake County, Indiana resident living at the address listed below.
I am against the county imposing a new tax on me and my family. As a taxpayer, I urge you to “VOTE NO” on my behalf as my council person. My family has tightened its belt during these uncertain economic times, so must the county council with the county budget. The council needs to implement a strategic plan to provide cost-efficient services prior to any consideration of burdening residents with an additional optional tax. I also encourage the county council to cut waste and find additional ways to save money. Please VOTE NO on increasing any tax burden on me and my family.
