Found in the latest FOIA request from the City of Bloomington:
This event has been postponed because of the lock-down. It looks like Gov. Pritzker will attend when it is rescheduled. This event looks like a party for elites. It honors people who have lived in Illinois at some point in their life.
Since the email states Bloomington bought a sponsorship, the 8 tickets likely either cost $5,000 or $2,500.
Contrast the above with the email sent by a citizen below. The writer doesn’t know the City only spends motor fuel tax on roads now. If other taxes funded roads there wouldn’t be money for parties, entertainment, and employee perks.
Maybe more than 10% of registered voters should actually vote?
