Putting a referendum on the ballot to ask if voters want to elect Trustees by districts instead of at-large is nothing more then a:
Those who want to prevent a Yes or No question from being on the ballot what to prevent voters from having that choice.
Isn’t it nice to have representation by people who don’t want your opinion?
Have you seen the Town of Normal’s public comment policy history and current policy? Obviously they have never wanted to hear your opinion.
Challenging the petitions means they don’t have a reason as to why citizens should vote no – other than we don’t like it. Kathleen Lorenz is against districts, she is running for re-election next year. Don’t forget who doesn’t want you to have a voice. Take notes.
Please come on Monday at 3:00 in the Normal Council Chambers to witness history.
