There is a war between the old guard and the newly elected members of the Council in Normal. Koos and company are not happy!
Chris: Stan and Karyn were elected because the taxpayers are sick of your $35,000+ a month rent in Uptown Circle, the $2.75 million you handed the developer to get the building built, subsidizing luxury apartments, $100 a month leases for friends, $120 a year lease for another friend, destruction of the mural for another ugly building when the 1st floor of the last building is still vacant, endless spending attempting to get federal money for the underpass only you want, planting a fire station on overpriced property against the wishes of neighbors, and of course the constant tax increases to feed your folly!
Evidently not, and neither does WGLT. They did a very funny story yesterday but left out one big fact. See the story here: https://www.wglt.org/post/extra-scrutiny-or-micromanaging-normal-town-council-adjusts-new-dynamics#stream/0
From the article, Koos proves he has no clue why he only won his last election by 11 or 12 votes and why Stan and Karyn were elected:
Then there is this gem:
Koos went on to imply Stan and Karyn were elected because of misinformation, but he refused to say what it was.
Chemberly Cummings thinks they are still on the campaign trail. Nope. Stan and Karyn are striving for good government and actually representing the people Chem doesn’t mind fleecing with higher taxes.
Kevin McCarthy thinks spending should only be discussed at budget time. Budgets are general documents without a lot of detail. The actual spending happens when the Council approves bills. At Council is where the discussion has to happen Kevin.
So, what did WGLT leave out?
The new Council members have already saved taxpayers money. The “professional staff” has been paying property tax bills for years they didn’t owe. Stan and Karyn also disrupted that $100 a month lease and saved the $5000 to install internet. I wonder why Eric Stock didn’t mention that in his article?
I’m attempting to keep a running total. It looks like $16,500 so far. Stan and Karyn aren’t close to done.
I wonder what Koos’s next move will be? Censure Stan and Karyn for actually representing taxpayers?
Koos obviously has TDS, he also has NSDS.
