The City held a Citizens Summit. Participants sent a strong message: Fund essential services first – not wants!
The City surveyed citizens. Citizens sent the same message: Citizens’ Priority Survey Results
Citizens reiterated the same to the Council during public comment last night. Watch starting at 4:55
Following, Tari gave his State of the City address. The interesting part starts at 32:40. The Mayor is possessed by developing downtown. He still believes that is where the future of Bloomington lies. Strip malls are dead, ba ba ba . . .(Go visit downtown Decatur Mayor, pretty now and mostly dead)
Tari: It’s in your imagination that the future of Bloomington is downtown: https://blnnews.com/2015/01/22/hey-pass-this-on-to-renner-and-koos/
Other parts from last night’s meeting you can’t miss:
Start at 1:43:47 – Mayor’s comments. Tari talks about the US Conference of Mayors he attended in DC last week. You need to know what you paid for since taxpayer money was used for the trip. He also says he brought back lots of ideas! Keep watching, Judy Stearns responds to the attack on her, Renner interrupts her. Renner claims he doesn’t read BlnNews.com, but he calls somebody a liar. I wonder who he was talking about?
Watching Renner talk last night something dawned on me: Renner = Markowitz. I want what I want and I’m mayor so I can get it. Watch for yourself:
