Normal’s Board election

By:  Diane Benjamin

Of course the vote is fixed in Normal.  The Chamber of Commerce picks the biggest spenders and advertises for them.   Only Koos approved YES people get appointed to vacancies.

Still, it doesn’t take that many votes to win a seat.  The biggest problem is candidates are forced to run in the entire town.

Here’s the vote totals from the last election:

Anybody running?  Not sick enough of Uptown spending yet?
