City Council Candidates

On Saturday, February 2, six of the seven candidates running for Bloomington City Council came to the McLean County Republican's Saturday Brunch Program to present their plans to serve on the council and take questions from the audience.  Connie Beard, McLean County Republican Party Chairman, served as  MC for the occasion.  All the candidates presentations and the question and answer period was video taped.  Use the link below to listen to the 4 video segments of the program.  They are recorded and labeled in order as presented. Each segment is about 13-15 minutes in length.  None of the comments of the candidates have been edited.   The McLean County Republicans will be following up with the candidates with a questionnaire that will serve as a voter's guide for the April 2 election.
