I’ve written almost 7600 stories since 2012. Most I can not remember, luckily readers do remember. The story below is one readers remembered that I didn’t.
Chris Koos is infamous for his insider deals that benefit friends and a compliant Council that allow the fleecing of taxpayers. I can’t possibly remember all of them, but the one below involves Koos’ good buddy and failed trustee candidate Dave Shields. I only remembered this story because it has been viewed numerous times today by you readers.
Keep in mind Bloomington mayoral candidate Mike Straza helped the failed Shield’s campaign, think Straza isn’t Koos 2.0 for Bloomington?
This one is a must read – from March of 2020: https://blnnews.com/2020/03/29/why-dave-shields-defends-koos/
If you can still vote for Koos and his chosen band of elites after reading that story, you are the problem and a threat to the wallets of everyone in Normal. This isn’t an isolated fleece, it’s part of a huge long pattern.
The names of the bobbleheads have changed, but Koos replaced them with new ones: Lorenz, McCarthy, Cummings, and Preston.
Thanks to the readers who brought this to my attention!
