Congrats Scott Laughlin

By:  Diane Benjamin Earlier this week Scott had Dick Durbin on his morning show (WJBC).  Since the Farm Bill just passed, it was a hot topic.  The Farm bill is around 80% Food Stamps (SNAP) and nothing to do with farms.  The 20% left enables corporate farms, not the little guys – but that’s a […]

Is Renner delusional?

By:  Diane Benjamin Tari Renner was on WJBC this morning with Scott Laughlin.  Scott asked Tari about pension funding. Tari had to mention the pension funding award he accepted several years ago.  Pension funding was neglected for many years so Bloomington could do fun stuff like the BCPA and the Coliseum.  When Tari was elected […]

Update: Tari on WJBC

It looks like WJBC is going to hide the Tari interview, it isn’t posted.   By:  Diane Benjamin Tari again forgot he changed the rules for his “Open Houses” on WJBC this morning.  Evidently Scott Laughlin forgot too.  Funny how the City website still says you have to make an appointment:    http://www.cityblm.org/Home/Components/Calendar/Event/7500/17?backlist=%2fHome%2fComponents%2fNews%2fNews%2f4327%2f18%3fbacklist%3d%252F Did you know […]

Get Scott Laughlin some gun facts!

Update: Tari, Tari, Tari – WJBC

I reported on December 28th State Farm was leaving downtown!  Nice to see SF finally admitted it.  https://blnnews.com/2017/12/28/state-farm-is-leaving-downtown/   By:  Diane Benjamin Mayor Renner appeared on WJBC yesterday – hear him HERE Couple of notes: He called a special meeting for next Tuesday because he thinks the people who volunteered to be on his downtown task force […]

UPDATE WJBC: Going to ever ask questions?

WJBC has posted the audio and a story:  http://www.wjbc.com/2017/10/25/renner-council-spat-shouldnt-impact-city-manager-search/ Tari:   Maybe the Aldermen who won’t return your phone calls understand the public business is required to be done in public.  See the Open Meeting Act you frequently violate.  Of course it could be they don’t want to hear more lies any more than citizens do. Did […]
