March 31, 2020 – West Bend, WI – Those of you who have questioned who is representing us these last few years, be sure to get out and vote. I voted early and was impressed on how organized and sterile the city clerk’s office is running the voting.
I am tired of the constant condemnation of our President and the obstruction by the opposing party. I was never a Trump fan but, as president, he is doing a lot more good than the media and our so called representation is sharing. Most condemnation of the president is dishonest.
Justice Kelly needs the vote of all of us who believe in our form of government. He has proven his ability to put the law first. Whether one is Democrat or Republican, the separation of powers is essential for our government to operate with credibility. Justice Kelly’s opponent has proven and even said herself, that she is an activist. She has no business on the bench.
Locally, our school board election is an important aspect of our representation. The current board members running for re-election, have been less than transparent or even honest with the voter. I wonder if these three even know what a board is. It is a balance of individuals with differing opinions to promote constructive discussion and ultimately produce a balanced decision.
Individuals? Why do we have 3 running on virtually one ticket? These same three did this their last election.
When I see that, I see three members with like opinions pushing their agenda. That is not a representation of the needs of our schools or that of the voter or district. And it is not producing intelligent and credible solutions. Jody Geenen received my vote to help bring balance to decisions in our district.
Astute and honest decision-making is essential. Please Vote.

*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.
