Wilmette Affordable Housing and the Will of the Voters

A friend forwarded me an e-mail from newly elected Wilmette Trustee, Karen Spillers, about the affordable housing advocates. It's about what they hope to accomplish with your money tonight, May 8, 2007, before the newly elected Trustees take office. Because the letters are somewhat lengthy, click here to read them. If you have the opportunity to attend tonight's meeting at Village Hall at 7:30 pm, it might be a very good idea.

Update: The report was receved by the Board. We are glad that any action has been postponed, which is a really good idea seeing that the report is 500 (yes, five hundred!) pages! You will have to go to Wilmette Village Hall to see it. There is a summary here; basically it calls for solutions not based on economics. The conclusions of the report are clear: do it the Committe's way and do it with your money, not theirs. Socialism is very important apparently to the affordable housing advocates; that is regrettable.

Just ridiculous. By no means should a critical spending decision be rushed through a lame duck Board, nor should any person with a respect for Democracy be trying to push it through.

JB, you are so correct. I am hoping our newly elected trustees will take a great deal of time to endlessly repeat: "Human needs and wants are unlimited; resources are finite."

The affordable housing crew utterly reject an economic model among in favor of some European-style socialism that even Europe is now rejecting due to the side effects. Low taxes and smaller lot sizes and small houses make housing more affordable. Once you begin the subsidies, the possibility of mischief in becoming one of the "favored" increases exponentially. The rejection of economics is generally a bad idea. On the other hand, it is well always to remember that Karl Marx was born in Trier, Germany.
