Twin Cities Mayors in Japan
Mayors Tari Renner of Bloomington and Chris Koos of Normal are in Japan for a week-long celebration of the 55th anniversary of the Bloomington-Normal Sister Cities Program with Asahikawa. According to the Pantagraph, attending the activities there are our Twin Cities mayors, a delegation of a few local residents, including former exchange students and members of the Sister City committee and their spouses. Illinois Leaks/Edgar County Watchdogs and BLNNews.com claim Mayor Renner's girlfriend is attending the events in Japan on public money--which they claim is illegal.
