The Town of Normal held a SHORT meeting last night. The video claims to be 17:44 minutes, but the meeting didn’t start until 8:22. Watch it Here
Of course nobody mentioned the issue from yesterday pertaining to renting a building to Dan Brady for $1 per year while the Town is paying more than $7000 in property taxes. See that story HERE
Mayor Chris Koos was absent, no mention was made as to why he wasn’t present. Evidently citizens don’t have a right to know why the people they elected aren’t there.
One guy who was present was R.C McBride:
Another member of the WGLT staff:
McCurdy represents Normal on the Connect Transit Board: http://www.connect-transit.com/about/trustees/default.asp
McCurdy also is the President of Bike Blono: https://bikeblono.org/board/
Anybody see any conflicts of interest?
Koos owns a bike shop.
McCurdy promotes Bike Blono and Connect Transit while controlling programming at WGLT.
R.C. McBride not only makes news as a member of the Town Council – he can shape what is reported as General Manager of WGLT.
Robustelli’s bio states he is past president of the Ecology Action Center (government-funded), Downtown Bloomington Association (government-funded), and a Board member of the Convention and Visitors Bureau (government-funded) while he spends taxpayer money as a member of the McLean County Board.
WGLT – taxpayer supported media (NPR) is twisted tightly with local government.
If listeners think they are getting REAL news, they are mistaken.
Their reporting is much closer to Provda.
Any more connections? The entire WGLT staff isn’t familiar to me – except for all the ex-WJBC employees.
