A Better Mount Pleasant sends

Under Village President Dave DeGroot budget expenses have exploded over the last two years:
Fire Department increased 11.1%
Police Department increased 14.7%
Contracts & Professional Services increased 18.6%
Salaries & Wages increased 13.1
Assessors Department increased 45.7%

Since becoming Village President there have been no performance reviews for salary increases, no annual reports of police crime and call statistics, no annual report of fire service calls or community response times.
No facts, data or community comparisons are required or used to determine village spending.
These increases don't even reflect expenses and wages hidden in TIF districts which residents pay interest on.
We can't afford this kind of reckless behavior. #BootDeGroot*NK-R
