I reported in Part 1 that Hales blamed the past Council for approving building Fire Station #5: https://blnnews.com/2017/11/08/49548/
Hales claims the Council needs to assert their authority instead of always taking staff recommendations.
Two points to consider:
- Voting against a Fire Station will get you accused of not caring about Public SsafetyHales could have prevented the massive theft at the Coliseum. Two Council members warned him, he ignored them.
Hales said some things that needed to be said.
Hales also tried to rewrite history because he knows he is to blame for many things taking Bloomington down now.
This Council almost always approves what staff recommends – they are told to right on the agenda. Here’s an example from next Monday:
Hales thinks the Council knows more than the staff?
Sorry David Hales, no re-writing history.
Good Luck Joliet!
