Letter to the Editor: Schneider should be transparent with his tax returns
Why won’t Brad Schneider be transparent with his tax returns? My concern is not about how much money he or his wife makes or their tax rate, but with his refusal to be transparent. He has a responsibility when called upon to be open and honest with his constituents. His failure to demonstrate accountability to those who elected him is what should worry voters this November. Unfortunately, Schneider is the type of politician who is a tired and sorry example of what we as Americans have come to expect from our elected officials. ­— Richard Williams, Mundelein
