First, I bet one thing will change when Koos is defeated: Appointments won’t be a secret until after the Council votes to approve them. Bloomington publishes them ahead of time, Normal has to keep their secrets so nobody can object.
Remember the March meeting where Stan Nord questioned why appointments were being made so close to an election? https://blnnews.com/2021/03/16/why-koos-needs-gone/
Stan was attacked by various Trustees for daring to imply the appointments were political. Obviously RC McBride was political, Koos was hurt when RC got defeated for reelection 2 years ago.
Now there is more proof Koos’ appointments are political. He also appointed Rachel Lund, failed candidate for the County Board. You may remember her from this story: https://blnnews.com/2020/10/30/who-is-the-real-rachel-lund/
Lund did a video supporting Koos for reelection, very political. This is a screenshot:
Surely this video wasn’t shot on government property!
That would be illegal.
You decide. The pic below is inside Uptown Station. The video is on Koos’ campaign Facebook page if you want to see more background. I hear the Amtrak overhang is visible in one part.
Of course, laws are immaterial these days, but you can vote corruption out of office April 6th.
