Normal needs better priorities!I am running for office to invest more in our infrastructure, shore up our underfunded pensions, and enhance representation in our local government. Normal has more than enough resources to accomplish the tasks that are before it. What we need now is a new set of priorities.
There are so many great things about our community. That’s why it’s been so hard to see key parts of our infrastructure crumbling. Our Town government taxes its residents at one of the highest rates in the state. Year after year, the Town budget reflects emphasis placed on new, expensive developments rather than on key maintenance projects and replacing failing infrastructure pieces, such as buckling pavements and deteriorating water mains.
New development isn’t bad, but when it’s not balanced with the upkeep of our infrastructure—when our “wants” eclipse our real “needs”—that’s when we have a problem. Our residents feel our Town has misplaced priorities, and I agree with them. That is why I am running. Normal needs better priorities. With your support, we can turn this situation around.

This election comes down to the type of leadership we want. We can look at how each of us runs our campaigns. I talk about the issues. He runs attack ads. I talk about voting records and policies. He preys on fear by association..."

Marc on Rivian
Marc has presented a short video:
- to set the record straight regarding his views on Rivian,
- to talk about comments that the Koos campaign has taken out of context to spread untruths about Marc, and
- to describe why it was wrong for the Town to gamble with the school district's money.

Driveway Meet & Greets Underway: Wednesday 03/31/2021 4:30–6:30 p.m.
811 North School Street, Normal, IL
Got a local issue? Ask Marc! Local residents have graciously donated their driveway space for outdoor Meet & Greets, especially designed to help us be “COVID friendly.” Rain or shine, Marc will be there!
You can walk up and talk to Marc (and have some individually-packaged snacks), or, if you prefer, you can stay in your car and text us your question at a number you will see posted at the event. Then, as long as you stay in the immediate area, you can tune your car radio to 102.1 FM and Marc will use our short-range transmitter to broadcast his response.
Please spread the word! Thanks!
