Activist broadens tax fight


An activist hopes to help shape a statewide movement to reform schools and oppose a bill that would change Illinois' tax structure. Harvard resident Cathy Peschke, who ran and lost as a write-in candidate for state senator earlier this month, said activists from throughout the state recently have been contacting her. "They want to work together for education reform and to fight House Bill 750," she said, referring to an education-funding bill that would shift more of the burden to income taxes rather than property taxes.
