No, I’m not moving to either Bloomington or Normal and I’m NOT running for office.
This story is about YOU.
I started writing this site in April of 2012 only because I saw how bad the local media was. Today most are even worse. The majority of them hate this site without ever reading any stories.
The local elitists hate this site. Progressive really hate this site! Government officials despise this site because they don’t want transparency.
Remember Tari’s Rant?
How about comments made by Rob Fazzini and Mark Peterson? (Note: I don’t know Mark Peterson)
I wonder if Joni Painter still feels this way?
Well, YOU are smarter than them!
YOU want real news, not the propaganda of the local media or government bureaucrats. YOU are sometimes annoyed by how local government chooses to use your tax dollars. Sometimes YOU get angry, you have every right to be angry. Some of YOU decided to run for office yourself, more REAL people need to run. (If that is YOU, contact me!)
Many of YOU give me information and tips. This site wouldn’t possible without YOU.
I could always use more help! If you missed the last time I posted the Edgar County Watchdogs training materials for the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and Open Meetings Act (OMA) see it here: Edgar County Watchdog Training
Transparency is the only fix for out of control government. There are more of us than them. YOU prove that every day by reading.
So what’s the HUGE News?
A “view” is somebody looking at a page on this site. Every story is a page.
Today BlnNews hit a HUGE number of “views”:
That means a HUGE number of YOU are reading. The days of progressive elitists are numbered. My thanks to YOU for caring enough to be informed, sharing stories, informing your friends and neighbors, and of course: VOTING!
