In 2011 Scott Oglesby was fired from the Bloomington Police force. Last May I read the entire arbitration report and wrote about it here: http://blnnews.com/2013/05/06/the-real-story-of-scott-oglesbys-firing/
Scott Oglesby was mostly cleared through arbitration, but City Attorney Todd Greenburg and a majority of the City Council refuse to drop the case and are appealing. Mayor Renner wants the appeal stopped because the City has no chance of winning. By appealing, the City is abusing Scott Oglesby and wasting Bloomington taxpayer money.
Alderman Stearns and Lower are in favor of dropping the appeal. The others need to state why they are pursuing a losing proposition. The taxpayers deserve a public vote so they know who is obstructing justice.
Send the Council an email and demand they publicly state their reasons: [email protected]
