Police Officer Scott Oglesby was fired was fired in 2011. An arbitrator ruled the firing was unjust, but the City via Todd Greenburg appealed. Meanwhile, Scott is still out of work unjustly. The City has no case, but Mayor Renner has told me he doesn’t have the votes on the City Council to reinstate him.
Here is a link to my original story: https://blnnews.com/2013/05/06/the-real-story-of-scott-oglesbys-firing/
Scott Oglesby deserves a public vote. The citizens of Bloomington deserve a public vote. Both deserve to know who on the City Council will vote to waste more taxpayer money by pursuing this case. Or, is David Hales blocking the vote? The Bloomington Police do not have a good working relationship with Hales, is this just spite on Hales part? Getting a vote would go a long way to restoring the confidence of the Bloomington Police with the City they work for.
Eventually Scott will be reinstated with a ton of back pay. For now the citizens of Bloomington are racking up debt without the benefit of Scott doing his job.
Demand Mayor Renner and David Hales prove they don’t have the votes so the citizens know who to blame for this continuing charade!

Council, are you going to vote by email to see who wants Scott on the next agenda? The Attorney General would love it!
