Constituent service at its best for longtime Madiganville resident Rep. Monique Davis
Illinois Republican Party Chairman Pat Brady released the following statement on the Illinois General Assembly passage of a special tax bailout for state Rep. Monique Davis:
"During the worst fiscal crisis in Illinois history Speaker Mike Madigan is throwing Chicago Public Schools under the (school) bus in order to give a tax bailout to Madiganville resident state Rep. Monique Davis. Rep. Davis' inability to pay property taxes on her government office will burden Chicago Public Schools with a $450,000 bill and will take up state resources; Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is representing Rep. Davis during the dispute with CPS in the state Court of Claims. Davis has refused to pay property taxes on her office, which is owned by Chicago Public Schools, for the better part of a decade. During that time she has voted for countless tax increases on Illinois citizens, including the recent 67% tax increase the Governor signed into law last year."
