Two representatives from the Bloomington Normal Tenant Union showed up at City Council to protest Jenn resigning because she is moving out of her Ward. Contrary to a commenter here last night, of course the demands are because of Carrillo. Illinois law says representatives have to live in their district, the council can’t change that. Want somebody who lives in Chicago representing you? Without that law it could happen!
What these two should be protesting is redistricting. Democrats are subverting “democracy” by creating boundaries to make sure republicans can not win. Do they care about people forced out of their district by democrat whims? Carrillo left on her own, Springfield forced others for political gain.
Instead of trying to change Illinois law on districts, what the State really needs is a RECALL procedure. We have people who run for office under false pretenses and when elected fail to represent their electorate. Citizens get stuck with representation for years that hurts their right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Take a poll in Ward 6 and see how many residents want the police defunded. Most people know the only wall between them and chaos created by those who don’t respect the law is the police. That issue alone would likely have gotten Jenn recalled if there was a procedure to do it.
Jenn wasn’t at the meeting in person. Since she claimed to be sick she was allowed to participate remotely. She commented at the end of the meeting about the two Public Comments. She proves they were about her:
This guy thinks whims of capitalism robbed citizens of democracy:
This was the second guy:
