So, the few of you that actually voted in the last local election thought you were voting for representation.
Joke is on you.
First, most of the Council works for David Hales and Tari Renner, not you. Vote results are predetermined by free lunch.
Tonight 2 alderman didn’t show – Painter and Hauman are missing or mute and invisible.
The Bloomington police just found a missing girl, maybe they can start a search for your aldermen.
Worse, Tari is conducting the meeting with no mention of where they are. Maybe they are sick. Maybe they are out of town. The only mention of the two was roll call at both meetings, obviously no response.
When citizens make the effort to vote for representation, don’t they at least deserve to know why their public servant doesn’t bother to show up for their job?
Is their pay docked for missing what citizens consider mandatory meetings?
Don’t employers usually fire people for missing work?
