A reader just found this story from May: https://www.bicycleretailer.com/retail-news/2020/05/13/exclusive-sale-greets-protesters-illinois-bike-shop
The story is about the citizens who showed up to protest Chris Koos’ business being open while many citizens weren’t allowed to make a living. It even includes his now infamous image taunting the protesters:
The story has a quote from Koos that will end his reign as mayor:
Yes folks, Koos is profiting from lockdowns that keep you from making a living.
Is he also profiting from all the new trails Normal is building? Two are on the agenda for tonight: https://blnnews.com/2020/10/18/proving-yet-again-normal-doesnt-want-to-hear-from-citizens/
Constitution Trail will be extended again and planning is beginning for trails on West College.
If Chris Koos had any integrity he would recuse himself from the discussions and votes. If lockdowns are the new toilet paper, imagine what trail extensions are. Silver? Gold?
He won’t recuse himself, he’s too arrogant.
Normal’s spending spree is gearing up. Koos knows he’s finished. Too bad taxpayers get to pick up the pieces when he’s gone.
It’s not going to be pretty. He took a town with zero debt to financial insolvency, he just hasn’t admitted it yet.
