Remember when Stan Nord was denied the right to participate remotely in an off-schedule Executive Session? https://blnnews.com/2022/09/09/village-of-normal-discriminates-against-stan-nord/
Stan wasn’t allowed to participate because it was an illegal meeting to discuss the referendum.
Pam Reece knew Stan Nord was unavailable the day of the meeting, she scheduled it that day on purpose, then 4 Trustees voted not to let Nord participate. Yes, it was a setup:
If the Trustees knew the law they would have walked out. The Town of Normal isn’t a party to the case that is now in court, therefore claiming pending litigation is not a valid reason for the meeting. Worse, they can all be charged with electioneering for conspiring to interfere in an election!
Nord filed a Request for Review with the Illinois Attorney General’s Public Access office after listening to around 4 minutes recorded from the meeting. He asked the AG to expedite this issue.
Did Koos and Reece know the referendum will be on the ballot?
Why else would they hold an illegal meeting?
Excerpt of the filing with the AG last week:
We have proof Brian Day was helping Patrick Dullard because of a comment to Day by Dullard when they were wasting time reviewing signatures. Everyone in the room heard it.
Below is proof Clerk Angie Huonker was spending time at taxpayer expense also working for Dullard. She was looking for documents at the County AFTER the Koos, McCarthy, and Huonker ruling on August 30th:
Normal is using staff to defeat the almost
2200 people who signed petitions!
Now have some laughs:
The Illinois Municipal League voted to put Chris Koos on their Board of Directors. https://www.normalil.gov/civicalerts.aspx?AID=2513
Koos has been found violating the Open Meetings Act many times. Electioneering is criminal. He and the IML fit together perfectly, both are sketchy at best: https://blnnews.com/2016/03/29/the-iml-scam/
Chris Koos also stated to the IML Chicago needs to send illegals downstate. Maybe they can live at his house, he must have forgotten there is a local housing shortage. See WGLT.
