A few weeks ago City Attorney Jeff Jurgens and Mayor Renner gave a talk at the Illinois Municipal League Conference. The topic was new media. I, of course, made sure I knew someone who would be in the room. The Edgar County Watchdogs and I were discussed at length.
This is not a guy from Bloomington and he was not familiar with all the facts surrounding what ultimately led to the Renner censure. I’d even forgotten that it started with Tari recruiting a couple of his students to attack Judy Stearns. This is the story – complete with the Renner comments – where it began: https://blnnews.com/2015/02/10/does-tari-know-that-judy-isnt-running/
Below is the report I received:
Lawyer considers Edgar County Watchdogs “A much different approach” than other internet individuals or groups.
