First refer back to yesterday’s story: https://blnnews.com/2019/02/09/remember-when-bloomington-was-broke/
The City of Bloomington will be adding yet another Quality of Life location most of the population will never use. EVERY Quality of Life location they have now loses money, including the zoo. Even though local soccer people have finally taken it on themselves to raise money for a new complex, it appears Bloomington and likely Normal are going to usurp the private sector to spend YOUR money instead.
This is from a Facebook discussion. Georgene Chissell is parroting Tari Renner. “Cut to the bone” is not investing in a sports complex they know will not pay for itself. It will be yet another drain on City finances and the poor. Since Chissell thinks the City needs more revenue, where do you think she wants to get it?
Jenn Carrillo was asked on Facebook why she didn’t show up for the City Council debate held by the local GOP. She was the only candidate who didn’t attend. Keep in mind City elections are supposedly non-partisan. This was her reason:
One more Jenn Facebook post. She wants a Welcoming Ordinance and ICE kicked out of Bloomington. I have heard from concerned citizens that a “Citizens Patrol” will be established to report illegals to both the Bloomington Police and ICE. If Jenn wants lawlessness she will get it.
Jenn is running against Karen Schmidt.
WGLT is the taxpayer-funded National Public Radio Station located on the ISU campus. Of course Connect Transit only exists because of taxes stolen from everybody.
We have reached a new local low, how many other taxpayers funded organizations will try to keep big empty buses on the road?
Add this to the reasons General Manager of WGLT – RC McBride – needs voted off the Normal City Council.
