Letter misstated position on taxes

Greg Jacobs gets it wrong. His letter from Jan. 6 (Don't Raise Taxes in Mundelein) claims I want to raise taxes. Simply put, I do not.

Residents can tune in on the village website to the most recent board meeting recording from Dec. 10, 2012, and watch as I advocate for reducing the property tax levy. I explain how Mundelein had a recent budget surplus and we need to use that money to either reduce the levy or else invest in better roads and streets.

Mundelein is an up-and-coming community in a great location. As a mayoral candidate, and chairman of the Pro Mundelein political committee, my philosophy is that municipal government is a service business owned by the residents and needs to be run efficiently with the owners and customers in mind.

I believe that deficits are unacceptable and any budget surplus needs to be returned to the taxpayers or else reinvested into capital infrastructure. As a trustee, my voting record has consistently reflected this view.
