Ward 5 is now left with one far left candidate for alderman. Mike Straza is dumping his alderman campaign to run for mayor. https://www.centralillinoisproud.com/news/local-news/mike-straza-announces-bid-for-mayor/
Straza was the Treasurer for Responsible Cities PAC – the PAC the so responsible Normal Mayor Chris Koos helped form. Responsible? More like attempting to hide Irresponsibility!
The only redeeming value in Straza running for mayor is Jenn Carrillo will strongly oppose him because of his connection to the people supporting the PAC: https://wordpress.com/post/blnnews.com/82158
The purpose of the PAC is to buy elections. See the names of the founders here – none of them should be trusted to responsibly spend money stolen from you: https://blnnews.com/2020/09/02/the-document-you-must-see/
Ward 5 needs a new candidate. Mayor obviously does. So far Bloomington doesn’t have a Marc Tiritilli (like Normal) who knows what’s really going on because he has done his homework.
Bloomington is setting up to have a far left council and a Chris Koos mayor. Straza wants to re-imagine Bloomington. He didn’t explain what that means in his Facebook announcement.
Unless that involves cutting the size and scope of government and allowing people to imagine their own future he’s dangerous to your wallet.
