Obviously many of the candidates last night believe what they are told instead of facts. The Coliseum doesn’t lose $500,000 a year, $1,000,000+ is MUCH closer to the truth. The City pays a lot of money for auditors, they shouldn’t be burying the results. https://blnnews.com/2019/03/07/dont-want-to-be-fake-news-quit-acting-like-it/
Jenn Carrillo was playing with a ball during the entire debate:
She was the only candidate to bring a computer and notes, maybe she has trouble remembering what her positions are. She does want a LUXURY tax because people who have money never miss it!
If you don’t know who to vote for watch the video here: https://www.wglt.org/post/what-do-about-downtown-bloomington-council-candidates-share-ideas
The video quality is bad in the second half. People can’t be heard in some parts and some nice video of the floor is on it too. If WGLT wants to be the debate kings, they need to do better.
I could recap what was said, but I’m not going to. Voters need to hear from the candidates for themselves.
Jeff Crabill attempted to hide how radical he is. Keep in mind he participated with Illinois People’s Action in their protest of the ICE facility in Dwight. He also tried to spread his propaganda in Normal, he would tax businesses too. How much is “Fair Share” Jeff?
