The January 21, 2020 meeting was pretty weird. Activists made a presentation asking the Town of Normal to develop an emergency plan because of climate change. At last Monday’s Council meeting Doug was the only public speaker, his topic was this group and getting qquestions answered about them. See this story for details and video: https://blnnews.com/2020/02/04/normal-koos-steps-in-it-again/
Below is Doug’s email exchange with Pam Recce. It appears Mayor Koos invited the group, he definitely approved their appearance. Was Koos trying to plant seeds of “We have to do something”? Doug mentioned during his comments that emergency agencies already exist. This group must not realize people need to take care of themselves, at least on a short term basis. Make a plan and then work the plan.
Pam must think citizens are required to email the entire Council, I bet Doug left Chemberly Cummings and Kevin McCarthy off for good reasons.
See the second email if you want time in front of the Council. I’d love to hear who gets rejected.
