The people of Normal have no one who specifically represents them. Try emailing a Trustee or all of them and see how many responses you get. It is expensive to run “At-Large” which is why you get hand picked Trustees instead of representative government.
Bloomington has Wards which means each alderman represents a part of the City. No Trustees currently live east of Veterans Parkway of west of Linden. Want to know why your water, sewer, and roads don’t get fixed? The people making decisions don’t live where you do.
Rantoul recently put a referendum on the ballot to create Wards, it passed. Stan Nord wants the same for Normal. See the link above for all the information your need. Download a petition and gather some signatures!
