You campaigned in a suit with a bow tie, but you come to Council meetings in a golf shirt? You claim running Bloomington is like running a corporation, but you and SOME Council members don’t have respect for the office by at least by dressing the part? It’s difficult to take you seriously!
One more thing – why is Tari Junior (Scott Black), sent to the Open Houses in your absence? Because he tows the Tari line? How is he going to get there without a car? Are your side-jokes during a meeting appropriate? Do you ever ask any other aldermen to cover for you? Perhaps they should all take turns.
Ward 7: Does your alderman make you proud? Would you rather have YOUR OWN Representative or Tari’s clone?
Maybe Bloomington isn’t really like running a corporation. Corporations care about the bottom line.
