The busy beavers at the Lake County GOP on are the attack again, this time railing against a series of misleading mailers that were sent out on behalf of the Democratic challengers to five incumbent GOP County Board members. The issue is that the very similar mailers all condemn high property taxes and suggest that the "County Assessor" should be forced to reassess home values based on more recent data. View a sample of one of the mailers here.
The problem is that we up here in Lake County have a different system than in Cook County, and our assessments are done by Township Assessors that are independent of the County Board. Oof.
So, either the Dem candidates didn't read the mailers before someone (the Cook County Dems, perhaps?) sent them out, or none of them understand the tax system in their own county. Double oof.
Finally (triple oof?), it's also very odd that the mailers are all practically identical, but they are identified as being paid for by the individual candidates' campaigns. Some of the names of the campaigns do not even appear to be correct. Given the mistakes made by confusing the Cook County tax system with Lake County's someone (MSM, anyone?) should ask these candidates who designed, paid for, and approved these mailers...
