Connect Transit is the best example of a government agency throwing away tax dollars. In the near future they will want more of your money to throw away.
Marc Tiritilli posted the below to Facebook. Keep in mind he requested an appointment to the Connect Transit Board to fill the year long empty seat representing Normal. He was summarily dismissed by Chris Koos. It’s easy to see why Koos rejected him, Koos doesn’t think standing up for taxpayers is noble:
It would be a disaster for the local economy if Connect Transit becomes their own taxing body. They are incapable of being fiscally responsible with the money they receive now. I guarantee Bloomington and Normal would NOT lower taxes, they would just spend the money they now give to Connect on something else.
Just imagine what they would do with even more of your money!
