The local beggars held another weekly call Wednesday night. Alderman Jeff Crabill wants the Council to be compassionate and cough up money. https://week.com/2020/04/29/despite-setback-twin-city-coalition-resumes-battle-to-ease-covid-19-economic-stress/
I could make an extensive list of how government has no compassion, but that isn’t necessary here.
Also according to the article, these groups made up the attendees:
That raises a problem for Jeff Crabill and Jenn Carrillo: City Code:
Jenn is employed by the State version of Illinois People’s Action. Both Jenn and Jeff are members of the Bloomington-Normal Democratic Socialists of America:
Lobbying and demanding “compassion” with tax dollars from the Bloomington City Council of which both are members sure sounds like “participation in political activities”.
There is an even better reason redistribution of wealth is dead: City Code demands Jeff and Jenn recuse themselves from this discussion at Council meetings:
Obviously neither can render a fair and impartial decision when
they are members of the groups begging.
The radicals lost the fight to get inmates released.
They just lost this fight too – and any future agendas dreamed up by the radicals. The Conflict of Interest clause is in the City Code to prevent situations just like this.
The article claims Normal and the County will also be targeted for money. I wonder if Normal will allow comments that violate their policy?
