When a candidate for office declares what they plan to do if you vote them into office they should actually do it. Some members of the Normal Town Council have openly criticized Stan Nord for doing just that. He is accused of playing politics because he isn’t rubber-stamping “the plan”. He is actually doing what he said he would do if elected. Novel idea!
Is that what Kathleen Lorenz is doing?
See the questionnaire she filled out for WGLT before the election: https://www.wglt.org/post/candidate-questionnaire-kathleen-lorenz#stream/0
Read the questions and Lorenz’s answers. She was the deciding vote to raise your property taxes and she claimed it was for hiring a communications person. How can her answers below be anything but a lie?
Trust in politicians is at an all time low – it is because of people like Kathleen who campaign to get your vote and then do the opposite once safe.
Trust in non-politicians like Stan Nord keeps rising. Kathleen Lorenz needs to act like she campaigned. The citizens of Normal should nicely remind her of promises before she was re-elected. Citizens can either put up with her for another 3 years plus or hold her accountable.

Voting isn’t enough, tell them you expect campaign promises to be kept.
Stan needs to know if you appreciate what he is doing.
