At the last meeting (September 8th) Kevin McCarthy pulled approving the bills from the Omnibus Agenda just so he could state “it is just a report”, everything spent was already approved in the budget. Last night Kathleen Lorenz pulled the same item so she could give the same speech. Who’s turn will it be at the next meeting? This is obviously aimed at Stan Nord who simply asks questions about spending YOUR money! If everything was already approved why does Normal have it on the agenda? Not publishing the list will likely be the next step, informed citizens are dangerous!
What does this really mean?
The Normal Town Council meets for ONE DAY a YEAR to go over the budget. It’s an all day meeting that ends with a budget. That means:
Spending is only discussed for ONE DAY out of 365.
Council members can’t talk about where YOUR money gets spent, except on ONE DAY. If conditions change (like now) spending can not be talked about – it’s in the budget!
Don’t forget the $550,000 City Manager “other” budget line, but don’t ask questions. https://blnnews.com/2020/03/03/normal-fiscal-responsibility-night-cough-cough/
See Kathleen Lorenz at 8:30. She wants to “remind” her colleagues not to re-litigate spending.
Why is this happening? The Deep State is now running scared, more proof coming up next!
