Mayor Renner’s Clerk Finally Produces Uncensored City Council Meeting Video –

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On January 15, 2017


Although the City of Bloomington violated the law by failing to produce requested records within the timeline established by the Freedom of Information Act, they did finally produce the unedited video from their November 14, 2016, City Council Meeting – but only after I called the Clerk to ask where it was.

What should concern the citizens of Bloomington is the fact this video was partially censored in the first place. Nobody granted Bloomington the right to censor its videos from the public, like the public is too “sensitive” to watch the entire public meeting without Mayor Tari Renner and his employees censoring parts they don’t want you to hear.

So this may not be a “child-friendly” video, with one word that most may deem offensive, it is a true reflection of what happened at the meeting, and citizens deserve uncensored access to what happens at their meetings.

Complete, uncensored video below:

    Tari’s response regarding the signage was disrespectful and not true. has a picture to prove this.

    Many towns have their board/council meetings broadcast live on the local cable channel. Might be a problem for Bloomington.
