I’ve written about the Illinois Municipal league numerous times. If you don’t know much about them, start with this story from 2016: https://blnnews.com/2016/03/29/the-iml-scam/
IML is holding their annual conference in Chicago in September. Many local people will be attending at a cost of at least $310 each. From Bloomington, Tari Renner, Julie Emig, and Mboka Mwilambwe are attending. I know Chemberly Cummings is going from Normal. Staying at the Hilton Chicago is almost as much as the conference – $267 before taxes. It is a three day conference, but all three days aren’t required. They are expecting 2000 attendees.
Here’s how they get people to come – put them on the agenda: https://conference.iml.org/ams/conf.cfm?job=program&key=141

Some municipalities still think they write laws. These two guys show them they don’t.
