Everything below was received by FOIA. I received another treasure trove of emails – stay tuned.
Remember this note Mayor Koos sent to Bloomington and leaked to the media?
This note was in the Pantagraph on July 17th. https://blnnews.com/2019/07/31/did-chris-koos-lie/
On July 26th, Stan Nord sent proof to the Mayor and the entire Council of what really happened.
Stan has always said he was contacted by a business wanting to locate in Uptown and he passed that information on to Pam Reece. There was no “lone wolf” and no “poaching”
See everything I received pertaining to this issue here: Stan Nord email to the Council
Note the date – July 26th. I’m only going to show enough information to prove Stan was right and Koos lied, read the rest above:
Note this company was told they couldn’t locate in the empty first floor:
Note in the June 20th email Scott Preston was included. He knew before the rest of the Council Koos had lied. Did he say anything to the media? NO.
Stan’s email to the Council concluded with this:
Did the Council publicly support Stan? Leak his email to the media? No!
On August 6th Stan Nord fired back at Koos and the Council during Trustee comments. https://blnnews.com/2019/08/06/normals-stan-nord-fires-back/
Remember Kathleen Lorenz’s email from August 6th?
Why was Kathleen shocked? She knew from Stan’s July 26th email Koos had lied about. She could only be shocked if she didn’t read it.
I never expected Chemberly Cummings and Kevin McCarthy to stand for truth. Scott Preston and Kathleen Lorenz are no better. Knowing the truth and not doing anything about the lies means they are complicit.
Not only does Normal have a Mayor who lies, a Council and City Manager who don’t care, a mayor who makes sweet deals for friends at taxpayer expense, – the Mayor thinks he can advertise his business on his official Facebook page: (he has since deleted this)
Taxpayers should demand some resignations.
These people aren’t working for you, they definitely aren’t public servants.
The first floor of 1 Uptown Circle could have a tenant, but they weren’t the “right fit”.
Will WGLT and the Pantagraph print the truth since both printed the lies?
