Alderman Edwards: Look At Spending, Don't Raise Taxes


Springfield Alderman Frank Edwards says the city should do a serious reassessment of its spending… including the money it spends on its police and fire departments… instead of considering a sales tax increase to pay for infrastructure improvements.

 

In a Facebook posting, Edwards… who is a former fire chief and who served briefly as mayor… notes that Decatur and Bloomington-Normal both have significantly smaller police and fire workforces and budgets than Springfield does.

 

Edwards is opposed to the sales tax hike for infrastructure… a sentiment echoed by many of his Facebook followers.
