2 more things from Bloomington Council meeting last Monday:
Tim Gleason thinks he has to obey whatever Pritzker utters, of course getting money is involved. Gleason is going to require all fire department personnel to be vaccinated or test twice a week. No mention of people who have had COVID and therefore have antibodies. Since testing is expensive he might try bribes, this “mandate” could spread to all departments. Since vaccinated people can still get COVID, why are all personnel not required to test twice a week? Can we expect common sense to return anytime soon? Pritzker doesn’t make laws Tim!
None of the people who have applied to fill the Ward 6 vacancy fit for the Mayor:
EXCITING NEWS: Partnership Opportunity for Local Businesses
Actually not so exciting. Email sent from Bloomington:
Two rescheduled events are listed for October: https://www.grossingermotorsarena.com/events-and-tickets/calendar
Since the City is now managing the Coliseum, they would have to hire and train people to do concessions or pay staff to work. Of course nobody wants to work anymore so labor is being pawned off on local liquor license holders who also can’t find people to work. Good luck with this one!
(an excited announcement?)
I bet you thought United Way was a charity organization. You would be wrong: https://unitedwayillinois.org/equity-challenge-content/
United Way of Illinois held a 21-Week Equity Challenge to gain a deeper understanding about the impact systemic racism and inequity have on our state and in our local communities.
Click the link to see all the topics covered in 21 weeks. United Way has joined the Marxist arm of the Democrat Party. Equity isn’t Equality.
Don’t miss Week 3. You have “privilege” if you are White, Christian, Male, Heterosexual, and if you actually worked for what you have.
Remember: “You didn’t build that”? “You misinterpret socio-economic status as something you did on your own.”
I hear this “challenge” was offered to all District 87 teachers. Unit 5?
