The McLean County Board is meeting at 5:30 next Thursday to vote on supporting the HOI re-open plan.
The purpose of the shutdown was to “bend the curve”. There was no “curve” locally but the destruction to the lives of McLean County residents has been beyond measurable.
Democrats want to take over the Board in November. Watch how the current crop votes. Will they be voting to protect your rights or run your life?
Ditto for Republicans. I hear two are considering voting against the proposal. They are under the misguided perception that government exists to “protect” you.
Those who vote NO need educated on “the consent of the governed”. Those up for election in November need removed. If every Democrat votes NO it will prove Democrats want to rule instead of govern. McLean County needs re-opened now, not when government thinks it’s “safe”.
Today’s vote will prove which elected officials (and party) think they need to run your life because you aren’t smart enough.
I will be watching.
