It is impossible for me to cover all local units of government myself, therefore I am going to quit covering Normal. If anyone actually cares about schools, I need help there too.
Your part-time mayor driving a vehicle taxpayers paid almost $74,000 for and putting regular plates on it instead of government plates didn’t make anyone mad enough to even speak at Public Comment. Actually few citizens ever show up to address their grievances, so you all must be happy with the fleeces of your money for the elites.
There is no hope for you since you have no representation on the Town Council, therefore there is no reason to continue covering Normal. Everything will pass with little discussion and you will all get the bill.
I’m sure WGLT will let you know all the news Normal wants you to know.

Next election vote better. In case you missed it, Biden thinks Climate Change is more of a threat than nuclear war. Google it.
Government broke it, don’t look to them to fix it.
Hit play to hear the proclamation:
