I’ve reported before that Justin Boyd will be running for something on the Bloomington City Council in less than a year.
Boyd is best buds with Tari Renner. Boyd was Tari’s campaign manager, appointed by Tari to the Downtown Task Force, appointed by Tari to the Planning Commission, helped collect signatures for Tari’s candidates, etc etc etc.
Boyd lived in Jenn Carrillo’s Ward until March of this year. He must be running for alderman and had to move before April 6th to qualify as a resident of a Ward for one year before the election. Right now I’m not sure which Ward he moved to. It might be 3 or 5, both of which are up for election in 2021. Since both Mboka Mwilambwe and Joni Painter aren’t Renner bobble-heads, Tari is likely running again and wants them replaced.
If Boyd is trying to get people to feel all warm and fuzzy about him, he is really missing the mark. Connect Transit went from transportation serving the population with no other choice to fleecing all citizens and pretending people can’t wait to jump on a bus.
Don’t forget: The Downtown Task Force (Boyd) wanted to tear down a parking garage and replace it with a new library/bus transfer station.
Yes, the empty buses are a joke. Since Boyd is a Tari buddy, he thinks the empty buses make a great place to advertise his insurance business:
Remember this when Boyd makes his announcement!
Connect Transit will never become fiscally responsible and serve the intended citizens until Renner, Koos, and their minions are gone. If you like the ever increasing drain on local finances – Boyd is your guy.
