5 things you need to know

By: Diane Benjamin


Two meetings ago Kathleen Lorenz suddenly started voting against the “professional staff” and even started asking questions about bills. She was part of the gang when meetings were less than 1/2 hour long because nothing was questioned.

She didn’t like my headline however: https://blnnews.com/2022/03/22/kathleen-lorenz-is-running-for-re-election/

In case it’s too hard to read, this is the text:

Someone told me you have a headline stating I’m running again for re-election.  Yikes, that’s news to me. I won’t actually make that decision until later this year. It’s one that I like to carefully weigh, with family and my employer. 

To that end, I’m wondering if you would be open to modifying your headline to a question, like “Is Kathleen running for re-election?” so as to not cause any baseless rumors? If not, I’ll understand. 

Also, I am sorry to hear that you didn’t get my reasons for questioning those bill items. If you would like, give me a call and I’d be happy to explain my vote further. 

All the best, 


Normal doesn’t charge to plug in EV’s, Koos stated at a Council meeting it would cost too much to install equipment to do that. According to this story, charging a Rivian from 20% to 80% isn’t cheap.


I’ve heard a Springfield legislator from Chicago with a Tesla stops off in Normal for a charge. Why not – it’s free!


Green Energy is going to cost you – thank the State of Illinois. Corn Belt customers will be affected too.

Remember the Bloomington documents that state rates will almost DOUBLE: https://blnnews.com/2022/03/14/bloomington-tonight-truth/

The CEO of Dow Inc knows wind and solar don’t provide enough electricity, he wants nuclear: https://seekingalpha.com/news/3816720-dow-considers-buying-nuclear-power-in-us-ceo-fitterling-says

Add this story about natural gas. Just Pennsylvania could supply Germany’s entire country. If Biden didn’t have a war on fossil fuels, prices here would drop. Electricity produced with natural gas would be cheaper too. https://www.shaledirectories.com/blog-1/four-pennsylvania-counties-can-supply-all-the-gas-germany-needs/

Get the idea your government wants to prevent prosperity to increase their power? If you don’t need their handouts to survive you don’t need them.


County Board Challenges – look at who filed them: (I could write a book on a few of these radicals)
