If the Normal Town Council can marginalize Stan Nord, the Bloomington City Council can marginalize Jenn Carrillo.
Every one of her candidates lost
Bloomington said loud and clear to socialists: Not In Our Town
Carrillo only won her seat by 42 votes. The City saw her antics for 2 years. It has affected her support and support for people she supports:
Jackie Gunderson came in third place. She lost by 1675 votes out of 11,508
Willie Holton Halbert lost by 667 votes out of 1853
Patrick Lawler lost by 200 votes out of 1246.
Kelby Cumpston lost by 157 votes of 683.
Only 21.73% of people bothered to vote.
Parts of the City had much higher turnout, parts had dismal turnout. You can see the map here: https://results.enr.clarityelections.com/IL/Bloomington/109017/web.276013/#/turnout
Congrats Mboka. Can we just call you Mayor M? I can spell your last name, pronunciation is harder!
Carrillo wasn’t happy last night. “When We Fight We Win” failed (her motto):
Jenn: Bloomington proved they don’t care what you have to say.
Jenn, your buddies at Black Lives Matter proved ALL black lives don’t matter. BLM didn’t support the black candidate of mayor. It appears only black socialists lives matter.
