Yesterday a citizen submitted a scathing letter to the entire Normal Council over their “attack” Stan Special meeting. If you haven’t watched any of it, “Must See” is an understatement. https://blnnews.com/2021/06/15/no-stan-you-arent-allowed-to-represent-voters/
Chris Koos responded to the comment, I redacted the name:
The writer then sent this:
Koos responded again:
I hope it’s at the entrance so people
don’t have to pay to see it.
Of course Chris Koos never lies, so this has to be the truth.
This is the text of the original comment:
|Dear Normal Town Council Members with the exception of Mr. Nord,|
Your attempts to marginalize and bully Mr. Nord and other members in your community is disgusting. Your children and parents must be proud. Your unwillingness and contempt for running the Town of Normal in a Moral and Ethical manner makes you criminals. Yes Criminals
The Illinois General Assembly recently enacted a comprehensive revision of State ethics laws intended to ensure that public officers and employees adhere to the highest ethical standards. Under the provisions of the State Officials and Employees Ethics Act (enacted by Public Acts 93-615 and 93-617), all units of local government and school districts are required to adopt regulations governing political activities and the solicitation and acceptance of gifts of public officers and employees that are “no less restrictive” than those contained in that Act.
Attorney General Lisa Madigan has prepared the Model Ethics Ordinance and the Guide to the Implementation of the Model Ethics Ordinance in order to help local governmental bodies comply with the requirements of the Act. The Model Ethics Ordinance covers the provisions of the Act required to be adopted by units of local government and school districts, and also provides an efficient mechanism for addressing and resolving ethics complaints. The Model Ethics Ordinance aims to provide guidance to local governments in implementing effective ethics regulations that will be consistent with their structure and needs.
You have not followed this law regardless of what Mr. Day has told you.
The fact that all of you (especially you KARIN) don’t care about your constituents, the law, and clearly have no self respect makes me physically ill. I can’t imagine any one of you believes in God or any higher power that or even your own legacy. I doubt that any punishment you receive on Earth will be as great as the punishment you will receive when you meet your maker. You are oppressive, tyrannical and uncaring. I don’t have to judge you because God already is…and remember when you look at your children that sometimes your sins will destroy generations to come. So when you look into your child’s eyes Karin and Kathleen I hope you remember these words. I do not like to bring children into discussion, but what you are doing is hurting your own children and mine.
