On November 2, 2010, voters in McHenry District 156 resoundingly said "no" to two referendums. A tax increase that would benefit the education fund failed, by 71.5 percent to 28.5 percent. A referendum for a tax increase to build a new high school to replace East Campus also failed, 73 percent to 27 percent.
Despite these defeats, the district decided to seek money once again from the voters. On April 5 voters said NO to higher taxes!! The referendum was crushed. Ordinary people made the difference. The referendum failed, 6054 votes to 1177, saving the taxpayers $8 million. A great victory for McHenry Citizens TaxWatch... Thank you for your support. Stay alert...
