GOV, homerule fails in Broadview [BV]

Most local tax referenda passed. Broadview's homerule referenda was thrashed, 70-30.

The voters don't have confidence in their current village leadership. This seems reasonable since Broadview lost its annual budget. Broadview didn't just ignore or neglect its budget. It lost the budget. See Proviso Probe (based on Suburban Life story).

Home rule isn't a panacea for poor fiscal management. The Village of Broadview has to fix the major budget problems before the voters are going to approve home rule. The big problems haven't been fixed yet.

See Pioneer Press (David Pollard) for quotes from village leadership.
