Howard Buffett

Howard Buffett & his foundation seem to have a great amount of influence in Decatur, IL. Two recent examples are the $500,000 he granted to the Decatur Police Department for a full-time DUI officer, which many members of the public vehemently opposed. Chuck Kuhle, at the cannabis meeting, specifically stated that one of his reasons for opposing dispensaries is that it would be a rejection of our former sheriff (Buffett).

Citizen remarks regarding the DUI Officer, which were much broader than reported by Herald & Review and WANDTV.

Information

There is a lot of data that we're working on putting together for the public. One such example is the 2018 Illinois Traffic Stop Study, which reveals quite a racial disparity among traffic stops in our town.
