Pekin Council Members Behaving Badly

with one comment

Looks like there will be an interesting city council meeting Monday in Pekin, my old stomping grounds.  Pekin City Council member Tom Blanchard has made quite a fool of himself by berating a city employee for doing their job & then asking for special favors from the police. Chicagoans may be jaded to this sort of behavior, but it’s not going to fly with the voting public in a town like Pekin.  I’m thinking Blanchard just deep-sixed any chance he ever had of becoming mayor.

UPDATE 1: Read Blanchard’s unapologetic response.

UPDATE 2: Blanchard censured by Pekin City Council.
