Tim Gleason wasn’t at the Council meeting, I bet I know why

By: Diane Benjamin

I bet Tim is in Columbus Ohio attending the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) Annual Conference.

“With four days of learning, inspiration, and connection, attendees leave equipped with the tools and support they need to make their communities a better place to live, work, and play.” https://conference.icma.org/about/

In other words, learn new ways to spend other people’s money.

Gleason could have attended virtually for $149. The $820 doesn’t include transportation or hotel:

Tim would have missed all the networking fun and exhibitions though, besides Bloomington is swimming in money.

Aldermen Walsh and Emig didn’t attend. They missed what was sure to be another rigorous executive session to determine how big Gleason’s raise should be. (Mboka gave it away at 32:50) The Council only has 1 employee – the City Manager. The Council discussed it in secret for another 1 1/2 hours. The minutes will never be released.

Meanwhile 3 women immigrants spoke about their journey to America. All 3 obviously see the US as a place for freedom, that is lost on far too many people born here. They are from Ukraine, Venezuela, and Ecuador. Just hit play to hear them.

  1. Someone need to point out to Gleason all the Bagged hydrants downtown and the water main that broke a few weeks ago that took three weeks to get parts to fix. I hope before they decide to put lipstick on that pig that they address the infrastructure issue downtown first.

  2. Downtown Bloomington : where private business owners are allowed to use and block off public taxpayer funded streets to earn private profits. Yep. That’s my Bloomington alright.
