Last night’s Normal Town Council meeting lasted over 2 1/2 hours, it will take more than one story.
Chris Koos declared again last night that he was holding a “business meeting”. Since the Town of Normal produces nothing and only has money they steal from taxpayers, he isn’t holding a “business meeting”. Koos is holding a meeting to do the “people’s business”, although it is hard to tell. Why does Koos always ask to be excused from voting on bills he incurred? He told Stan not to discuss bills because they were already paid and approved. The agenda title was even changed to reflect that. Hypocrisy everywhere.
During comments at the end of the meeting Stan Nord again brought up the empty seat on the Connect Transit Board. Marc Tiritilli had tried during public comment but Koos cut him off. (more on that later)
Koos responded to Stan that he hadn’t found a candidate worthy and willing to serve. All of the people below were interested in serving. Chris Koos thinks all of them are unworthy and not qualified. In other words, they might actually listen to the people, be fiscally responsible, and use their brains instead of consultants. Obviously people this mayor appoints to Boards and Commissions must rubber-stamp what he wants. They aren’t there to be the voice of citizens.
Here is the list of the unworthy:
Terri Lynn Morgan
Please give Koos the same respect he gives you folks.
