Tari did show up at his Open House last night. He was surrounded by people who wanted their voices heard on the Connect Transit Board. The conversation turned to “diversity”.
Diversity in Tari’s world is people of all skin colors who agree with everything he thinks. Diversity of thought isn’t allowed.
Tari’s comments are in response to a lady who spoke of the need for diversity on the Connect Transit Board. She meant representation by people who must use the bus because they have no other transportation available. She was concerned that people in north Normal will not have service once the Olive line is discontinued.
Below is Tari’s response to her comments. Maria Nagle from the Pantagraph was present. Is she going to report what he said? I believe a reporter from WJBC was too, no story posted. Are Tari’s comments okay with Not In Our Town?
I have a much longer video that I might post later. Tari has no intention of appointing representatives to the Connect Transit Board who represent the riders. Tari represents himself and the Chamber of Commerce. He will appoint representatives who believe the same way he does.
