Normal ignores their taxpayers as evidenced by their ridiculous Public Comment policy meant to discourage citizens from speaking. It’s long past time for some non-violent civil disobedience. Sign up for Public Comment for an agenda item and then talk about Village abuse instead. Video of Koos cutting off citizens while speaking is badly needed to wake up the people still not paying attention!
Here’s the latest:
You elect 7 people in Normal supposedly to represent you. We know Chris Koos and Kevin McCarthy are against letting citizens pick their own form of government. Both don’t want a simple Yes or No on the ballot asking if citizens would rather have representation from their neighborhood instead of At-Large that doesn’t represent anyone but the Village.
We know where Kathleen Lorenz stands – she doesn’t want citizens to decide.
We know Stan Nord is for letting people decide.
Where does Karyn Smith stand?
Where does Chemberly Harris stand?
Where does Scott Preston stand?
3 of the 7 haven’t said publicly if citizens deserve the right to decide for themselves!
3 of the 7 have stated they are against letting citizens decide for themselves!
The only issue right now is if citizens get to decide for themselves. Koos must be terrified he will lose.
Koos is alienating far too many people and bringing the Village clowns down with him. McCarthy thinks he can be the next mayor. Kathleen Lorenz thinks she can be re-elected. Scott Preston thinks he can be a State Rep. They thinks ignoring citizens is a winning strategy.
6 of the 7 have elected officials are ignoring the over 2000 voters who signed the referendum petition.
It isn’t intelligent to disregard the people paying your bills.
