Over the weekend, one of the six Democrats running to be their party’s gubernatorial nominee said the system is flawed and doesn’t represent traditional Democrat values.
That candidate’s name? Kennedy – one of the late Bobby Kennedy’s sons.
Kennedy said in an interview with the Peoria Journal-Star:
This is not the Democratic Party that represents Kennedy values. These are people who are making money off the system as property tax appeals lawyers that’s destroying our ability to educate the next generation of kids in our state. You want economic development? Jobs go to where the highly educated high school and college kids are. You can’t produce highly educated high school kids when you rely on property taxes. Everybody knows that, yet we cling to that system because our leadership is property tax appeals lawyers, and they’re destroying our state.
