Working families can't pay public pensions

Success - Article sent! close

Good day to you and your family. I am writing this to clamor to whoever will listen to the plight of the working person trying to provide for my family!

Here is Lake County, on my property tax bill, I am being forced into paying into several pension funds of other people. Over the past twelve years, I have had to pay over $6,000 into these said pensions. This money should have been in my retirement. Please fix this, Illinois General Assembly and Gov. Quinn, but most of all, you, the duped public servant made slave by erroneous political action in the past.

Please help and do the right thing. Cut off all the special interest and arrogant overreach, and hijacking of the system.

Leslie Ross
