Keep in mind: This group thought ObamaCare would be a good thing! Maybe they can redeem themselves this time. LWV is also in favor of a progressive income tax, instead of eliminating income taxes like other states, they want to play Tax the Rich (http://www.lwvmclean.org/gritinfo.html) One of their Co-Presidents, Maureen Okeefe, circulated petitions to get this on the ballot! I hope she isn’t planning on participating!
LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS® of McLean County
Modified Ward System
For the City of BloomingtonMonday, Feb. 3 at 7:00 pm
Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church, Bloomington
The consensus question is exactly what is on the March 18, 2014 primary ballot in the City of Bloomington:
“Shall the City of Bloomington elect part of the councilmen at large (3) and part of the councilmen from districts (5) with staggered four-year terms and biennial elections? Yes/No”
The committee is also doing other research. Then we will hold discussion among League members who wish to speak.
