By: Diane Benjamin Follow up to this story: Normal: Spending your money to not comply The deadline to file objections to petitions is Monday.

By: Diane Benjamin This morning three people filed for offices in Normal that will only exist because of Patrick Dullard’s stunt throwing the referendum off the ballot with the Town of Normal’s blessings. Judge Kording ruled Normal is an Incorporated Town, therefore the Town needs to comply with the law. Robert Shoraga filed to run […]

By: Diane Benjamin Patrick Dullard thinks he has the right to stand against 2200 people who signed petitions to put the Districts referendum on the ballot. Of course he’s just a stooge Koos buddy. We have proof at least two “professional staff” people have been assisting him. Oh what a tangled web they weave . […]
By: Diane Benjamin Kathleen Lorenz said in an interview that companies wishing to locate somewhere watch social media and negative comments affect their decision.

By: Diane Benjamin Patrick Dullard continued to question signatures until the County Clerk’s office closed yesterday. Attorney David Shestokas objected to everything Dullard stated, DULLard didn’t care. His effort was a complete waste of time because his objection can not be amended. He didn’t challenge correctly the first time, he’s finished. Therefore: He should get […]
By: Diane Benjamin Patrick Dullard only had one chance to object to names, process, petitions, etc in regard to putting a referendum on the November ballot. Dullard failed to identify any specific data to support this statement he filed: Since he cited no proof with that statement his argument is invalid. He doesn’t get a […]
By: Diane Benjamin The hearing was short. The two Public comments are in the third video, if you watched them from yesterday’s story you can skip through them. They aren’t the entire video. If you want to see what happened, now you can:
By: Diane Benjamin Kevin McCarthy didn’t bother to show up so the commission is Koos and the Clerk. Maybe Kevin knows Dullard doesn’t have a case and doesn’t want to look stupid voting with Koos. Essentially Koos doesn’t want the referendum and Angie Hounker won’t vote against him if she wants to keep her job. […]

Dullard wants to deny the right of every […]

By: Diane Benjamin At the “attack” Stan meeting held Monday there was one public speaker who of course spoke glowingly about Pam Reece. Mayor Koos introduced him as Mr. Dullard. Video in this story: https://blnnews.com/2021/06/15/no-stan-you-arent-allowed-to-represent-voters/ So who is Mr. Dullard?
