Bloomington Election Commission – A Third Open Meetings Violation –

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On December 7, 2016


We have already pointed out two recent examples of the Bloomington Election Commission violating the Open Meetings Act, and have also found another one – from 2014.

The Commission admitted in a letter to the Attorney General’s office that it had violated the Open Meetings Act in February 2014 by failing to properly post the agenda for a public meeting.

It is unclear at this time whether the AG made a determination in this admitted violation in 2014 or not.

Their attorney, Robert Day, was present at this meeting also. He really needs to find another line of work and the Commission needs to find an attorney that will properly advise them of how to conduct a legal meeting.

    He must have attended law school with the La Harpe, Illinois city attorney.

    That’s pretty amazing that an attorney – who is supposed to know the law – cannot properly instruct a public body on how the conduct a legal public meeting. The next question is: Have they ever followed the law?
