Not much Peoria news in the Journal Star that wasn’t in yesterday

  If you are a Peoria resident without a hankering for news from Washington or Metamora or Galesburg or Bloomington, I don’t see a real need to buy the Journal Star.

Here’s some more Peoria-centric news culled from the Tazewell County and Bloomington news that fills ‘Peoria’ news media

  Here’s some more Peoria-centric news from purportedly Peoria based media.

More Peoria-centric news from Peoria’s one and only daily newspaper of record

 More nonsense:

Here’s some rare Peoria-based news from Peoria media

Does Peoria need its own Bill of Rights?

Critical Provocation is one of the most interesting local blogs to come along in a long time. The lede story today:

In Peoria, just as in all American metropolitan communities the will of the people is not the direction of local governments. A couple examples of Peoria government sidestepping the will of Peorians can be seen in the passage of a Food Truck Vendor ordinance with no real vendor access, and the sale of Riverfront Park for condo development. These are examples of American Exceptionalism. The management of government for a very long time, is becoming more and more vested in a small corporate minority, and Peoria is no exception.

What Peorians need is a Local Bill of Rights, ensuring sustainable use of our green spaces, sustainable redevelopment of place, adequate access to public transportation, wide scale sustainable energy use, a living wage, sustainable agriculture, clean air and clean water, and so much more.

This is just the beginning of a brighter future for Peoria, if we want it. We are the People we have been waiting for. The wait is over; no one but we have the power. Please, look forward to more information regarding the growing Community Rights Movement at
