"I would not support a property tax increase." That was then...
On the campaign trail, Ald. Mell pledged to voters that she wouldn't support a property tax increase. But that was six months ago. Now, the mayor is planning a record-breaking, $500 million tax hike, and we know he'll be looking at Mell to keep her 100% rubber-stamp voting record intact.
Our neighbors and families deserve better, and our politicians should be held accountable for breaking their word. That's why we're launching Mell Watch, an information tracker to help our community keep an eye on how the 33rd Ward is being represented in City Hall.
