It’s way past time for adults to be running the City of Bloomington! We are tired of the lies and the abuse of taxpayers by pretending the city doesn’t have enough money because taxpayers aren’t paying enough.
End the charade. Cancel the court jesters. It’s OVER!
They just don’t know it yet. This is in the packet for Monday’s meeting:
Since the meeting is at 5:30, why don’t we show up and see what’s for dinner?
Better yet, ask the aldermen why us mere peons have to cut expenses when there isn’t enough income but they don’t have to?
David Hales will attempt to horrify by going straight to cutting police officers and maybe a couple of firemen. We’ve seen this script before played out year after year.
That million dollars that was stolen from the Coliseum would come in handy now wouldn’t it?
It’s way past time for YOU to feel pain instead of taxpayers.
- No travel anywhere
- No more Council dinners
- Cut employee benefits
- End pension spiking
- Either end the funding to the EDC and BN Advantage or fire your economic development guy
- Decide the Coliseum breaks even in two years or it is shut down
- Decide the BCPA breaks even in two years or it is shut down
- No consultants for any reason for an entire year
- No new employees for any reason, even replacements for one year
- No new projects for one year – projects aren’t progress, they are the opposite
Funding GAP is more than gone!
It’s only $1.5 million. That much is thrown away every month just on obvious items.
Until employee compensation is brought in line with the private sector – not what other cities pay – the City of Bloomington does not deserve the support of the people they are stealing from.
Until entertainment spending ends – the City of Bloomington does not deserve the support of the people they are stealing from.
Until the lies end – the City of Bloomington does not deserve the support of the people they are stealing from.
Are these people too dense to see they are following in the State of Illinois footsteps? Can’t say no to anything!
Only you can make it clear they are finished partying at your expense.
