Farkas has it right! Glenn Farkas has announced that he will not take a legislative pension when elected, has publicly called for Illinois legislators to take a pay and pension cut and supports taxation of political campaign contributions. Meanwhile, Dan Biss rhetoric still supports his unrealistic ideas of pushing the cost of Springfield's pension mess to our beleaguered school districts to get the future pension cost monkey off Springfield's back. No sacrifice from the politicians, but huge sacrifice to local property taxpayers. My vote is with Farkas who is a friend to financially strapped property taxpayers and wants to fix corruption in Illinois.
