Mailboxes in Normal are being flooded with fancy large mailers supporting Scott Preston, Kevin McCarthy, and Chris Koos urging votes for the incumbents on the Normal Town Council.
The Illinois Realtor Fund Super PAC is paying for them. This group must not know what they are supporting: https://illinoissunshine.org/committees/25064/
Illinois Sunshine not only lists contributions and expenses, it lists other committees with the same officers. They obviously don’t pay close attention what the incumbents have voted for:
If the goal of the Realtors Fund is affordable housing where taxes don’t force people out of Illinois, they are backing the wrong people.
If the goal is to encourage more home sales so they can pocket commissions, they just might be right. People will continue to flee Illinois cities with high tax rates. This group is headquartered in Springfield. Foreign interference without facts produces dollars for the post office, likely not swaying any votes. Most voters don’t fall for trash in the mail.
Even more hypocrisy next!
