Jonathan Swigart is an award-winning journalist and former newspaper editor/reporter from Savoy, Illinois. When not overthinking random topics on the Internet, he can be found spending time with his wife and son, enjoying a video game or two, building automated spreadsheets at work, or trying to get the grass in his back patio to grow.
In the Sept. 9 edition of the Mahomet Citizen, the editorial regarding annexation incorrectly indicated that residents not living within the village limits did not contribute to the schools that their children attend. This information was incorrect in that village residents and non-village residents alike pay school district taxes on their properties, especially if a student is attending a school within the district. The statement indicating the contrary was made in error and the Citizen regrets this error.
