Stan Nord was on WJBC this morning with Scott Miller. The article below only recaps the conversation they had about Connect Transit.
Nord also explained why he paid the tap-on fees instead of filing a lawsuit. The conversation ended with Stan asking both Bloomington and Normal to eliminate their Local Motor Fuel Tax since the State is going to raise theirs July 1st. Both cities will be getting a share of that increase.
The Bloomington City Council did mention the State raising the rate before they voted to gouge the poor for another .04 a gallon – a total of .08. Normal has not voted to match Bloomington’s increase. If Bloomington doesn’t decrease it to at least the same as Normal, it speaks volumes about their character.
Real leadership and representation from elected officials is rare, Normal elected a gem.
Listen to the entire conversation here, you won’t be sorry: http://www.wjbc.com/2019/06/03/nord-stronger-expectations-and-goals-needed-for-connect-transit/
