Roger Kempa’s letter last week denigrated members of our community who voiced reasoned disagreement with his prominent poster at the December 2013 public meeting at which, in a 4-3 vote, the Hinsdale High School District 86 Board decided to set a flat tax levy that fails to account for the rise in the Consumer Price Index.
Kempa praised President Richard Skoda and his three board allies for this vote that declares, in Kempa’s words, “local property tax money belongs to all the people.”
It seems fair to reflect upon Kempa’s objectivity, since some of that local property tax money now belongs especially to him, sitting in his pockets as the result of the February 2014 decision by these same four board members to hire him as District 86 interim chief financial controller and treasurer.
