Remember yesterday’s story about Renner’s Budget Task Force? https://blnnews.com/2015/07/08/bloomington-your-budget-task-force/
It turns out TWO (2) members don’t live in Bloomington!
Deanna Frautschi lives at 2802 Hendrix Dr Bloomington IL. The address is Bloomington, but it isn’t inside the City limits!
This is the map of Ward 2: http://www.cityblm.org/modules/showdocument.aspx?documentid=88 Look at the bottom right side for Hendrix.
This is the map of Ward 8: http://www.cityblm.org/modules/showdocument.aspx?documentid=84 Look at the bottom left side for Hendrix.
Hendrix Drive is outside of both Wards.
Frautschi is also associated with the Pantagraph. An on-line magazine is published on the Pantagraph.com website featuring Frautschi as a Writer, Photographer, and Naturalist. The magazine uses many other Pantagraph employees for stories and photos. Frautschi is also frequently written about in the Pantagraph as a “Community Leader”. She is the consummate “insider”. I wonder if she is going to increase the advertising budget to the Pantagraph? Think the Pantagraph watchdogs (that don’t do any actually watching) will print glowing reports on this committee in September? http://issuu.com/pantagraph/docs/ltd_june15_online/1 See page 3.
It gets better!
Committee member Allan Dodds lives in Champaign! Thanks to the person who will remain nameless for doing some research. Click on the picture to enlarge.
Your elected members of the Bloomington City Council have outsourced their responsibility (the BUDGET) to people who don’t even live in Bloomington!
Tari Renner has declared himself emperor and assigned people he chose to do the City’s business! Your elected officials, minus Kevin Lower, let Renner get by with stealing their authority.
Is City Manger David Hales still getting paid? For what?
Is the Council still receiving their meager salaries? For what? Only 3 are doing any work and probably the other members are telling them what to think. Renner has made it clear the Council isn’t up to the job, so did he put 3 Council members on the Budget Task Force to make it look legitimate?
In September this group will report to the council and Renner will demand a vote on whatever they come up with. Cuts will be almost non-existent and it WILL raise taxes.
Your City has been stolen by a narcissistic dictator. Congrats! (“But let’s all be nice to each other” John Brandt)
