Chris Koos must have taken his defeat Tuesday harder than he’s publicly saying. Two new Trustees that have called out the “Plan” to buy people to move Uptown will be seated May 1. Chris claimed he doesn’t take it as a rebuke of Town policies. It was of course, but dictator types can’t admit defeat easily. I still expect him to resign “for health reasons” before his term is up in two years.
Wednesday Koos wrote a letter to Sarah Grammer, Democrat Normal Township Supervisor. Sarah is also the wife of Bloomington’s Economic Development Coordinator Austin Grammer.
Sarah looks to be buddies with the socialist candidate from yesterday’s story. This is from election night: Grammer, Studebaker, and fellow Illinois People’s Action candidate Pat Turner.
This saga started when the Connect Transit Board decided to cut a route and raise fares without ever seeing a large number of emails from people who had opinions on this issue. Grammer publicly called for Tari Renner and Chris Koos to replace their representatives on the CT Board. Grammer continued to complain on her Facebook page, Koos didn’t respond until April 3rd – one day after his stunning defeat.
I’m sure you noticed the local elites told people not to listen to the negative voices when deciding who to vote for. In other words: We know better than you, how dare you question us! Defeated RC McBride made that point on his Facebook page too. Pretend everything is great and it will be!
Prepare for giggles while reading! It sounds like he’s talking to me instead of a fellow leftist!
Sarah didn’t take the Koos abuse. She responded on Facebook:
We are witnessing a socialism fail! Grammer is attempting to assist people with transportation, Koos doesn’t want anybody to know Connect Transit is unsustainable!
Sarah doesn’t believe in monetary limits of charity, of course it isn’t her money she’s handing out (the township helps people who can’t afford to ride the bus). Chris lives in a fake world where the message is carefully controlled. His media normally doesn’t report jinks in the walls or infighting. Koos snapped in his letter to Grammer!
Grammer is right to advocate for people with disabilities and the very poor. That’s why public transportation exists. (Even though it could be done much cheaper!) How does she explain advocating for her socialist buddy Joel Studebaker? As I reported yesterday, (https://blnnews.com/2019/04/04/is-isu-teaching-socialism/) Joel marked a Connect Transit survey saying he earns between $35,000 and $49,000. Why doesn’t Joel need to pay his Fair Share? It must be okay for socialists to expect everybody else to pay their way. How many other CT riders can afford to pay their Fair Share too?
Maybe Joel is still in massive debt because of his indoctrination at ISU. He’s been out for a number of years and still hasn’t cracked $50,000?
The local socialists aren’t hiding anymore. The public fights between the Democrats and FAR left can’t be contained. Get the popcorn ready!
FYI: Koos will likely be blaming any failures in Uptown on the new Council members. Anybody in that empty space on the circle yet Koos? What is the occupancy rate at the Hyatt?
