Joni Painter record (Ward 5)

By:  Diane Benjamin

Besides getting the speed limit on Hershey lowered:

Joni was originally appointed by Tari Renner to fill Jennifer McDade’s term after she resigned

Joni called me a liar: https://blnnews.com/2015/10/28/alderman-painter-needs-to-explain-herself/

Joni wanted to charge me for FOIA requests:  https://blnnews.com/2015/03/23/transparency-matters-joni/

Joni deceived voters the last time she ran:  https://blnnews.com/2015/03/17/painter-intent-to-deceive/

Joni is a Democrat who attended a fundraiser for Socialist Jan Schakowsky:  https://blnnews.com/2015/03/25/non-partisan-they-shouldnt-be/

Joni voted to raise the Gas Tax, create an Amusement Tax, and raise all these taxes:  Utility Taxes: Gas, Water, Telecommunication, Electric, and Municipal Gas Use Tax:  https://blnnews.com/2014/07/28/dont-forget-who-raised-your-taxes/

Joni voted to raise the Sales Tax 1%:  https://blnnews.com/2016/10/03/who-voted-for-taris-nonsense/

Joni voted to buy the Sugar Creek Packing property for no apparent reason:  same as above

Joni voted to buy the N Main street property for no apparent reason:  same as above

Joni voted to pay Connect Transit rent for use of a dilapidated building the City had used for free:  same as above

Joni voted for every raise given to David Hales:  same as above

Joni voted to allow Hales to not bid on items up to $25,000 – up from $10,000

Packet:  Page 211  http://www.cityblm.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=8125

Vote:  Page 7  http://www.cityblm.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=8137

Joni voted to allow Hales to spend $50,000 without Council approval – up from $25,000:  Same links as above

(Stearns and Lower were the only two NO votes on these changes)

I found ONE vote Ward 5 probably approves of.  It concerned Sharing Sales tax with Normal:

sharetax

Note:  Hauman wants to be Mayor and Black is on the ballot for Ward 7.  This consensus vote was illegal, but when has the law mattered?  (The vote wasn’t on the agenda)

I could make this list MUCH longer, but these items say she is a reliable YES vote and doesn’t represent Ward 5.

If you like the direction Bloomington is taking, she’s your gal.  Otherwise, vote for Lupe Diaz.  He isn’t a Democrat of a Socialist.

    While I agree with you on this, spell check on this, “Joni deceived voters the last name she ran:”

  3. OK! Time for the old blood pressure medicine-DON’T get me started on JOHN-EE!! (That IS how SHE pronounces it). She is out for Joni, no ONE ELSE. and she has absolutely NO social skills when it comes to “meeting” a person.
    I seriously DOUBT if she reads the packets, much less comprehends them, and when you TRY and talk intelligently to her, that “rabbit in the headlight” kicks in and so does the head shaking.
