March 30, 2020 – West Bend, WI 0 You’ve heard it said, “Elections have consequences.” It’s important to know whom you are voting for before getting your ballot. What’s on your ballot? You can find this easily at myvote.wi.gov Just enter your address and, bingo, there’s your lineup.
I would like to put plug in for conservative candidates.
Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Daniel Kelly is up for reelection and deserves to win this contest against liberal challenger Dane County Judge Jill Karofsky. Kelly promises to preserve the constitution and uphold the law.
For the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, District II, challenging Judge Paul Buenhagen, Jr. is the conservative choice against incumbent Judge Lisa Neubauer. Neubauer recently lost her attempt at the Wisconsin Supreme Court. She supports climate change and gun control as two examples of liberal bent.
There is one conservative challenger to the three incumbent members of the West Bend School Board. Jody Geenen promises to bring conservative diversity to the board. To make this happen, vote for one, not three. Vote for Jody Geenen. Jody has a keen interest in curriculum, something most board members leave to the administration and won’t challenge. In addition, she wants to provide independence, transparency and accountability.
There’s an interesting referendum question on the ballot. Don’t be sideswiped by its presence. It’s very generically written. There are lengthy statutory changes behind it. Do some research. It grants more rights to victims. Who wouldn’t want that? It may add cost and delay to the system. Some good, some bad.

*Trolling: a troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal, on-topic discussion, often for the troll’s amusement.
