The former Normal City Manager isn’t sitting back enjoying retirement on his fat pension, he has a new job:
Mark is a Vice President for GovHR! Click the link above to see his glowing resume.
Mark doesn’t mention the still empty first floor of 1 Uptown Circle. He also doesn’t mention the Town’s public/private partnership with the Cornbelters. Things must not be going well there, is Rob Fazzini suing to get his investment back? Wonder why he isn’t suing Normal too – they have the money!
The Bloomington Normal Economic Development Council is looking for a new President and CEO. Guess who they hired (with your money) to find one?
Keep in mind GovHr is the same group who found David Hales for Joliet (the 4th column is population, not salary):
They found Tim Gleason from Decatur for Bloomington after a nationwide search:
And they found Pam Reece for Normal after another nationwide search:
FYI, Pam was already the Assistant City Manager under Peterson.
Anybody sensing a pattern? Recycle progressives using taxpayer money?
Maybe GovHR will find Peterson is the best fit for the EDC. It will be fun to watch.
