In the last two weeks I have been contacted by many people in small towns surrounding Bloomington-Normal. They are tired of being abused by their government while information on spending is hidden.
The latest to contact me is Danvers. The citizens have a new FACEBOOK page to spread information since Danvers doesn’t have meeting information online. “LIKE” their page HERE
If you don’t have a Facebook account, you need to. Sign up at Facebook.com – hide your personal information – like birthday! Ask a kid if you need help. It’s free, stay away from the ads though. Some are fake.
The Edgar County Watchdogs have put together training materials for citizens.
See the Open Meetings Act training: Open Meetings Act
See the Freedom of Information Act training: Freedom of Information Act
One or two people can make a difference! Print out both documents, you will know more than your government about the law.
Let me know what you find!
