Kathy Michael got the referendum court date moved to this Friday because early voting starts September 29th. (before any debates happen!) It will happen over Zoom so we can’t pack the court.
Morning Giggles from League of Women Voters:
The LWV decided as expected. When they picked Normal’s former City Manager as presenter the outcome was obvious. Their statement posted to Facebook last night (see below) makes no sense and doesn’t include any of the issues. Their “study” was gathering reasons to oppose it from people opposed to it. They obviously didn’t look at the documentation on https://betternormal-il.com/
I wonder if minorities in Normal realize they don’t exist? Largely homogenous? The LWV missed the two minorities who testified before the Normal Election Commission, a pastor and an Asian American. Both want representation in their neighborhood because they don’t have it now. Transparency does exist – it was easy to see in advance LWV would take the side of the local elites.
