Where did Mark Peterson go?


In case you forgot already, Peterson is the retired City Manager of Normal.

He went there to teach them how to set goals:  https://www.pekintimes.com/news/20190729/pekin-city-council-sets-city-goals-at-monday-special-meeting

There is a huge difference between the goals people have for their government and the ones they set for themselves.  It can be summed up in one word:


It is the belief that government officials can predict the future and need your money to make it happen.  They are all-knowing geniuses who can create utopia for the citizens if they just stay out of the way.

It appears these clowns are on a tour to convince every level of government to get on board.  They too can have massive debt, just plan for it.

What do citizens expect?

  • roads that don’t bend you car axles
  • sewers that don’t backup into your house
  • an effective police force that isn’t constantly dealing with gunfire and armed robberies
  • fire protection
  • low taxes
  • quality water
  • outsourcing to avoid the pension crush
  • the smallest government possible to provide the above

Anybody think that is what Renner and Peterson are preaching?
