District 215 talks about financial issues. Sears and Carson's are closing. Put it on my tax bill. President Barack Obama is causing a disaster. Put it on my tax bill for D. 215.

This doesn't include Springfield wanting schools to pay into pensions. There goes taxes to District 215. How much annual pay goes to District 215's superintendent? Wasn't he hired at $200,000 plus, if I correctly remember?

Keep raising taxes, and Calumet City is going to have more board-ups and no one paying taxes. Then what?
