The Pantagraph needs to explain why an alleged Open Meetings Act violation against the McLean County Health Department is so much more important than the one they also reported this week against the City of Bloomington. That story was quickly buried on their website – comments were NEVER allowed. Comments ARE allowed to the Health Department story.
At least one comment asking why today’s story is more important was posted and then deleted from the Pantagraph website.
Could it be the Health Department doesn’t generate advertising revenue while Bloomington does?
Could it be the Pantagraph is protecting their buddies?
Today’s story states Lisa Madigan is asked to investigate.
The City of Bloomington was found GUILTY of violating the Open Meetings Act. That story said nothing about 30 days in a jail and it being a Class C Misdemeanor. .
Maybe when the Pantagraph hears David Hales and Tari Renner’s assault on the Council and at least one City union, they will alter their reporting.
Don’t hold your breath.
Let’s see how long it takes the Attorney General to rule on the Health Department case, I predict much faster than their ruling against the City of Bloomington. Where’s that story Pantagraph?
Judy Buchanan is on the Connect Transit Board and she’s now President of the Board at the Health Department? Ever get the idea a small cabal of people run everything locally? The same faces keep appearing again and again.
