I can't figure out how Sheila managed to vote against annexing SIU into Carbondale. It was great that Brad went over to campus and got Wendler and the gang to agree to do it. SIU and Carbondale are intertwined with police and fire protection already. It extends Carbondale's reach in zoning and future growth to the other side of SIU's lands. Gains the SIU sales tax revenue for Carbondale.
Does anyone know why Sheila voted against this? How could you justify her vote? Any thought that Sheila will be better then Brad at dealing with SIU has to be thrown out as part of the bargain, doesn't it?
This seems like another clear accomplishment for Brad and a strike against Sheila.
Isn't it great having Kyle and Jon Bean commenting using their real names? Of course, your comments are welcome.
