Evidently the leftists on the Council want to use media to get their choice for Ward 6 alderman. WGLT has now done two stories, the latest after Jeff Crabill posted to Facebook over the weekend:
Jenn couldn’t find a single place in her Ward to live! Not buying it. It is much more likely she knew nothing she backed would be approved by the rest of the Council because:
Every candidate she backed in the last election lost.
There is ZERO reason to appoint one of Jenn’s buddies if the goal (as stated by Crabill) is to represent ALL people of the city.
Jeff, all people of the City spoke. No to Jenn, no to defunding the police, no to Social Justice with taxpayer dollars, no to socialism, and no to rabblerousing representatives.
You will find that out at the next election, if you decide to run.
I find it hilarious that some Aldermen have no problem leaking internal information to the press but refuse to be transparent with the people paying the bills. Hiding Executive Sessions minutes so people don’t know comments made behind closed doors is appalling for transparency. Leaking to the media to sway public opinion is just as appalling, thankfully you likely swayed the public away from anyone you would pick. Levi Champion is a huge No since Crabill supports him.
If you missed the WGLT story, Mboka is considering appointing Karen Schmidt to fill the rest of Carrillo’s term. https://www.wglt.org/local-news/2021-10-10/bloomington-mayor-considers-former-council-member-karen-schmidt-for-the-ward-6-vacancy
I suggest Mboka pick a more centrist candidate from the current list, let the Council vote them down, pick the second centrist, let the Council vote them down, then appointment the best person. That’s how you got their Mayor.
