A reward for tax incentives?

May 24, 2014 

Really nice to hear about the Belleville money giveaway. Eckert's and Wagner got the lion's share; almost half of the welfare money went to them, $1,864,038.

I think they should have a taxpayer appreciation day and let everyone get a pie or something at an affordable price and have the Red Hat ladies dance or something, Maybe we could get Belleville Mayor Mark Eckert and U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin to sing along. What a time we would have.
