South suburban voters sent county referendum message on taxes

Voters in four south suburban towns this month overwhelmingly said the county should create a tax-incentive program to attract business investment and spur economic development that would ease the property tax burden on homeowners.

The margin of support for the Nov. 6 advisory referendum in Hazel Crest, Midlothian, Richton Park and Thornton was startling. According to election results certified this week, nearly 97 percent of voters supported the measure.

“Generally on ballot initiatives, 60 percent or more of the vote is considered a landslide,” Reinbold said. “When it’s over 90 percent, I call that an avalanche.” Please click here to read Ted Slowik’s column in the Tribune/Daily Southtown.
