Of course we know the local elections are not non-partisan. Koos and Renner don’t hide the fact they are Democrats. Carrillo and Crabill don’t hide they are socialists. Scott Preston is involved with the local GOP party. The association list goes on and on. When elected, ideology isn’t suddenly thrown out the window for the public good.
Below is a RING video of close to 2 years ago. Kathleen Lorenz is out campaigning for re-election. She is at house with a Stan Nord sign in the front yard. Listen to the video, Kathleen is upset Stan is supporting a Democrat in the race when he should be supporting good Republicans like her:
So what did this loyal Republican do for this campaign?
Circulated petitions for Chris Koos!
Lorenz also circulated a petition for Democrat Chemberly Cummings who ran against Dan Brady. She was joined by local local Democrats: Hannah Beer, Rachel Lund, and Elizabeth Johnson
Stan Nord was running by himself 2 years ago. He thought Karyn Smith at least partially aligned with his views on the debt and frivolous spending. Stan’s support is the only reason Karyn was elected. If any other candidate had been on the ballot with similar views Kathleen Lorenz would be history by now. Voters can make her immaterial by defeating candidates she aligns with. She also circulated petitions for Scott Preston and AJ Zimmerman.
Kathleen was upset Stan supported a Democrat, but this GOP precinct committeeman circulated petitions for one.
This folks is the real Kathleen Lorenz!
She has no conscience and no core beliefs.
She is the reason many refuse to call themselves Republicans, including me.
This election is going to be easy. You can tell from the petitions who the establishment supports and who is aligned with Stan Nord’s values. I will be doing more stories, but you can see the petitions here: https://blnnews.com/2020/11/24/petitions-for-town-of-normal/
Don’t miss this weeks History Friday. It won’t be about Thanksgiving. It’s going to be local!
