It was the Democrats who wanted to change the agreement made when a 10-10 Board was elected and a Republican was picked as chair.
Last night changed nothing. In October the last empty seat will be filled restoring the 10-10 board. A Republican will still be in charge, what the Republicans did was maintain the status quo. Democrats wouldn’t have done that, they wanted to seize power.
I guess Democrats forgot when Dave Koehler passed a law taxing the entire county for the airport when he didn’t represent most of it. I guess Democrats forgot when Sharon Chung passed a bill to change the law only for the Town of Normal to make sure citizens aren’t represented. I guess Democrats forgot when the Normal Town Council didn’t allow Stan Nord to participate remotely in a meeting.
We know who doesn’t believe in Democracy and uses dirty tricks for power.
Democrat Board member Corey Beirne was worried about people not being represented because appointments to fill the 2 empty seats couldn’t be made with a permanent chair. Last night fixed that by maintaining the status quo. I’m pretty sure he won’t be writing any apologies. He wrote this one Facebook 2 days ago:
The Democrat Party issued an equally ridiculous statement that also ignores NOTHING changed on the County Board accept a female is now the chair? Got something against woman Democrats?
