Since a big majority of people want to hear more about Paradigm, I’m reading the vast amount of information I received under the Freedom of Information Act from the Town of Normal. Thanks for the workload folks.
When I find something interesting, not necessarily related to Paradigm, I’m going to stop reading and post it.
I’ve heard Bloomington Mayor Renner talk like running Bloomington is like running a corporation. He used it to justify the high salary paid to David Hales. Normal evidently thinks the same way.
Here’s the email:
Maybe companies holds staff retreats paid for from their profits, but cities? They aren’t spending profits – they are spending YOUR money!
Are the staff in need of a vacation? Why Starved Rock? How many citizens in Normal could never afford 2 days at a resort?
Did the Council attend? How many “staff” went? October 23rd was a Thursday, did Town offices close down?
How about somebody sending them a Freedom of Information Act Request for who attended and the total cost? The citizens, who just got more tax increases, have a right to know. I’m booked.
Email me for how to do it.
