A few weeks ago a friend of mine came back to town. She went on Facebook to see what the Normalites were doing and to see Mayor Chris Koos. Koos requested to be called ‘Chris’ and commented on her post mentioning a ‘meet and brew’. That moment led to my hour long interview with the Mayor of Normal.
The shock of it never hit me till it was over. I had so many questions and wanted to hear this local leader’s words of wisdom. My main objectives were to ask about the recent boil order, what was in store for the future of Normal, and how Trump’s slashes to the arts funding would impact Normal.
This interview was in The Coffee House in Uptown Normal. The audio is not the greatest quality but will only get better with time. Thank you for reading and listening.
