Good News

By: Diane Benjamin Bloomington cancelled next Monday’s Committee of the Whole meeting. They use these meetings to soften up the Council for futured spending. Citizens are temporarily safe: (and I don’t have to watch 2 meetings in one night!) Not sure if this is good news, it depends on who is planning to run for […]

County going green, of course at your expense

The County Board debated for two hours last night.  Peoria and the other cities who put together the HOI plan have all backed […]

Your future because of 5 RINO’s

By:  Diane Benjamin See this story from yesterday:    https://blnnews.com/2018/01/16/these-are-republicans/ The McLean County Board has an unwritten policy.  All work is done in committee and the Board members rubber stamp whatever comes out of committee.  I was told issues will not be re-heard before the entire Board, that’s why they have committees.  (My beef was with […]
