I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
My recommendations are in blue text
Attorney (3-year term):
Paul Eberhardy (inc.) - He is running unopposed and I think he has done a great job!
Clerk/Treasurer (3-year term):
Dennis Broderick – I don’t know much about him. He seems fine, but he is being supported by McCue.
Comptroller (3-year term):
James Williamson (inc.) – While I have had personal issues with Mr. Williamson, I think his work seems just fine. I know he has personal issues with Clerk Treasure Goss and it might have simmered over into the work area. From what I know, the rest of the work he does is good.
Judge (3-year term):
John Zodrow (inc.) – A very nice man. Always answered my questions, but I just don’t think he can get the job done. He is costing the city revenue and not sure if his personality and that of the police force can work together.
Common Council (3-year terms)
Joe Mikolajczak (inc.) (Yes I am friends with) I think of all the alderperson he does the most for the city. If your alderperson isn’t getting it done, “just call Joe” is what I am told.
John Cummings III – I don’t know much about him and really don’t have an opinion.
Mary A. Schissel (inc.) – While I have had my personal issues with Mary in the past, I have come to understand her more. I do think her sampling method for how she should vote on Wal-Mart was flawed (she called 30 random constituents of hers) and I think if she had to do it over, she would send out a mailer to all of her constituents to find out more exactly they wanted her to vote on it.
Darren Grams (Yes I am friends with) – Took the ball on the sexual Predator ordinance and started to get District 3 residents to talk about it and helped to change it. He has good ideas and wants to get the residents involved and have good communications with them.
Mark Otto (inc.) – Started out good and I think the main problemis he has side with Mayor McCue on almost all things. I am not the only one, as his nickname at City Hall is mini McCue or McCue Junior.
Jason Litkowiec (inc.) – After coming out of the gun great, I was somewhat disappointed with him. A very nice guy and very easy to talk to. I think getting some more time under his belt and a new Mayor could be a good thing.
Richard Bartoshevich (Yes I am friends with) – A tough fiscal conservative who is pro development and has a good grasp of the rules and what is wrong with
Thomas Pavlic (inc.) (Yes I am friends with) – A fiscal conservative who has great ideas, but doesn’t get the details conveyed. He could bring a lot to the table if he didn’t get too frustrated and was able to work with the other alderpersons on what he wants to do. Needs more of a follow through some more tact, then he might get the support from the others he needs. We need good ideas, but we also need the nuts and bolts to the ideas. How is it going to work.
Mayor (3-year term):
Anthony Day – I think I have written as much as why you should vote for Tony as I can. The opposition can only tell you why not to vote for Tony, but they cannot tell you why to vote for McCue. That speaks volumes.
Mayor McCue promised
Only Tony Day can deliver
The only way to move
Yes way to Tony Day!
We had a Mayor who would just Play Mayor
I think it is time to elect a Mayor who is the Mayor
That person is Tony Day and he won’t just say and play Mayor
He will be Mayor Day
Do you want a Mayor that wants his own Way?
Or a Mayor that listens to what the people Say?
Vote for Tony Day and
Tony Day is the right way!
Hooray for Tony Day! Hooray for
