Skokie Gov. Home Owner Costs Compared to Other Villages

Skokie Costs to Home Owners Compared to Other Villages

EvanstonNow has done an article that is deserving of close study by anyone interested in local governmental accountability.

They compare two studies. One by Niles claiming itself to be the lowest local government in Illinois…. and another by Park Ridge showing Niles to be the highest.

Communities compared include:
Arlinton Heights
Buffalo Grove
Des Plaines
Downers Grove
Evanston
Glenview
Mt. Prospect
Naperville
Niles
Palatine
Park Ridge
Schaumburg
and Skokie

What this evidences is not which village is the most spendthrift… but a lack of respect for the intelligence of the voters to whom they report coupled with some form of insubordination.

That they believe they will be rewarded for such antics is also compelling evidence that the lack of respect is well earned by the voting population that maintains them in office.

A very nice article by Bill Smith, publisher of Evanston Now.
