From the Chicago Coalition Against Beverage Taxes
In case you missed it (September 24th), Mayor Emanuel introduced his proposed budget yesterday without including a new tax on soft drinks, fruit drinks and other beverages in Chicago.
Thanks to your efforts, city officials have been getting the message loud and clear that Chicagoans simply don’t want another tax on common grocery store items.
But we’re not out of the woods yet. With a public hearing on the Mayor’s budget proposal coming up on October 14th and a final vote set for October 28th, we need to keep the pressure on city officials.
Visit www.NoChicagoBeverageTax.com and send a message to your alderman, reminding them that another tax on beverages is bad for Chicago businesses and citizens alike.
You can also continue to encourage your friends and family to join our coalition. And don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for latest updates.
Together we can prevent another costly tax on everyday beverages and keep politicians out of our grocery carts.
Thank you for your continued support,
Chicago Coalition Against Beverage Taxes
