Scott Miller was the on air guy, it wasn’t FISH.

A guy who calls himself Fish Martin is covering for Scott Laughlin while he is undergoing cancer treatments.
This morning he talked about comments to a WJBC story they posted on Facebook. This is the story from the WJBC website: Bloomington City Council Approve Name Change for Gender Neutral Title
Three of the new aldermen requested the change – Carrillo, Crabill, Emig.
Fish was upset with the tone of the comments. He claims he moved here last September, therefore he doesn’t know the history of Bloomington. Fish is just more uniformed media. The news director Katherine Murphy claimed the vote only took a few minutes. It didn’t. It and the proper procedure for putting things on the agenda by alderman was discussed for close to 15 minutes.
Bloomington does not have a strong conservative voice people can get behind, a “Stan Nord/Marc Tiritilli” with common sense is badly needed. The citizens are stuck with rotten roads, the losses at the Coliseum and BCPA, constant tax and fee increases, and a Council with priorities that don’t reflect those of the population. The Facebook comments reflect how real taxpayers feel. Fish hasn’t been here long enough to know that.
It’s a bad sign that three aldermen are worried about what they are called. Note one new alderman – Donna Boelen – didn’t care. She is obviously there to make good decisions for the people in her ward, not be on a power trip with a title.
Since Fish read the names and some of the comments on air, I’m not going to redact names. These are some of the comments, go to Facebook if you want to see more:
