Chris Koos had rulings against him before for violating the Open Meetings Act, but never 2 very close together.
This was the first violation: https://wordpress.com/stats/post/90250/blnnews.com
The Attorney General’s office finally found time to rule on a second (OBVIOUS) violation. This one was filed in 2019 by Karyn Smith.
Media keeps pretending the Normal Council violated the Open Meetings Act. The culprit is Chris Koos. He shut down Marc Tiritilli and Karyn Smith when both tried to speak at Public Comment.
If the rest of the Council is also guilty, what they are guilty of is playing bobble-head to Koos’ tyranny.
McCarthy, Preston, Cummings, and of course Koos have to go April 6th!
See the last paragraph of the WEEK story, the town released a statement. If Attorney Brian Day didn’t know Koos was acting in violation of OMA two years he needs fired. Normal only changed the policy to the ridiculous one they have now because they knew the AG was going to rule against them.
When the NEW Council takes over citizens will be allowed to speak. After all, those people represent you, they don’t rule you.
