Did the Town vote to work with shysters last night? Before proceeding Normal needs to do some due diligence!
The driving factor in moving forward with the outdoor National Fitness Campaign was the company is a non-profit. RINO Republican Scott Preston voted yes, Kathleen Lorenz voted no., Karyn Smith didn’t bother to show up and no explanation for her absence was given. Kevin McCarthy did not recuse himself, more on that later.
The American National Red Cross is a non-profit too. In 2020 this is what they paid their top executives: https://projects.propublica.org/nonprofits/organizations/530196605
Non-profit doesn’t mean nobody profits!

If Town of Normal Trustees continue to believe whatever they are told, they will continue to prove they work for the Town – not citizens.
