6 things you need to know

1)

Notice who is missing from this lawsuit:

Village of Normal isn’t party to the referendum appeal!

2)

Remember Normal’s use of MICA to purchase insurance and paying far money that Bloomington does? Remember staff doing the accounting for vendor MICA? https://blnnews.com/2022/07/22/more-on-normals-mica-problem/

Well, just like CIRBN employees are no longer Village employees, Normal is no longer doing the accounting for MICA. Hopefully next year they actually BID insurance instead of continuing the MICA fleece. Yes Pam, you have lots of “ethical conflicts”. She doesn’t see it however:

3)

I have seen social media posts about Bloomington water quality, but I haven’t seen much on billing problems. Anyone have problems with Auto Pay?

4)

Ivermectin would have saved lives, doctors weren’t allowed to use it: https://yournews.com/2022/09/04/2407481/study-ivermectin-reduces-covid-death-risk-by-92/

More bills from Chris Koos’ private party he threw at taxpayer expense:

From August 29th:

From tonight: https://www.normalil.gov/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/4411

A total of $5,514.13 spent on a party for Koos supporters. Yes, Pam – ethically challenged!

See the rest of Normal tonight here: https://www.normalil.gov/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/4411

  1. A quick note on #1: Neither Normal nor the Electoral Board are respondents in this case. The case is a petition to appeal the decision by the Electoral Board. The electoral board functions in a “quasi-judicial” capacity. In this situation the analogy is like asking an appeals court to reverse the decision of the trial court. When you file the appeal with the higher court, the lower court is not a “party” to the appeal. This is the same, the Electoral Board made their decision, but it (nor the members) are “parties” to the case. The Respondent-Objector is a “party”, and the County Clerk is made a party because court orders will affect her work related to preparing for the election.

    The Municipality of Normal was not a party to the proceedings with the Electoral Board and is not involved in the appeal of the Board’s Decision.
