A local elected official says he is battling a deceitful message being spread by an east coast political group.  The message is coming in the form of postcards from a special interest group urging taxpayers to contact State Representative Dan Beiser (D-Alton) and vote for a property tax freeze.  Voting records show Beiser has voted for the freeze nearly a dozen times this year.

Beiser tells The Big Z his office has been fielding a number of calls since these postcards began arriving in local mailboxes.

Beiser and his staff have been collecting signatures on a pro-property tax relief petition for weeks.  If you would like a copy of the vote totals for each property tax freeze bill this year or to sign the petition, call 465-5900.
