Thinking about voting for Jackie Gunderson, Kelby Cumpston, Patrick Lawler, or Willie Holton Halbert?
You should first look at what Jenn Carrillo and Jeff Crabill have done for Bloomington: Juneteenth, Welcoming City, Defund the police, not showing up at meetings, etc.
If you want a Social Justice Council that ignores the essential services citizens expect of government, vote for all of the above.
Here’s a clue of what to expect if they win:
Government’s job is public pianos?
Patrick Lawler shows his socialist side with this post, keep in mind as a government employee he hasn’t lost a cent during the shutdown:
What studies showed closing in-person dining slowed the spread of Covid and saved lives? In Illinois restaurants were always at the bottom of the list of spreading locations, eventually they didn’t make the list at all.
People 1st would rather hand out your tax dollars at their discretion instead of allowing entrepreneurs to survive. Jackie Gunderson, another government employee, hasn’t lost a cent either. It’s easy to criticize people trying to hold on to a business they built while pocketing your paycheck as usual.
Lawler hasn’t looked at the facts. Some states didn’t shut down businesses and had fewer public health issues than states like Illinois. Renner and Koos should have put him in charge of torturing anyone with a liquor license. They would all be out of business by now in the interest of “public health”.
People 1st could easily take over Bloomington April 6th. They are working hard to con people into believing socialism will save them. If Bloomington doesn’t show up to vote it will be fundamentally transformed.
How many people are you going to drag to the polls April 6th to prevent your own destruction?
A far left group called Run For Something has endorsed both Cumpston and Lawler. (This group is democrats “Build the Bench”) Page down some: https://runforsomething.medium.com/meet-our-march-2021-endorsement-class-ba43ba89b128
Kelby wants to use his “white privilege” to amplify voices silenced by local government.
Lawler wants to quit focusing on economic development and start emphasizing direct aid to families. I wonder if he knows redistributing wealth has many unintended consequences including making people government slaves waiting for their next handout. Many more “poor” people will appear when the handouts start.
(Maybe that’s the goal)
