Free vehicle charging at taxpayer expense. Own a electric or one of the many hybrid electric cars? Then downtown Madison is the place for you. Come fill up your batteries and the local tax payers will foot the bill. Will the other tax payers get free gasoline at Circle K downtown? Where do I get my free gas voucher? The mayor's office?

JB: I wish you would go to the courthouse to the voter registration office and have Bev Ringwald explain how voter registration actually works. I think you would see things a little differently. You would be free to ask her as many questions as you could think of and she will have a plausible answer for you.

It's not only an issue with voter registration but, also, with property ownership. Example: You have a veteran ( and, yes, this ties in with a type of veteran abuse - a.k.a., vet scamming [ if you will ] - that is becoming nearly as prevalent in our society as senior abuse ) where the vet has passed away or become invalid to the point where she/he has moved to a care facility. The vet's property is now occupied by some other family member OR, perhaps, a total NON-AQUAINTANCE. Yet the vet's property rights/privileges are still being enjoyed (read, taken advantage of ) by aforesaid occupant. This could go on for YEARS before it's discovered by appropriate local govt. agency/office!!?? Could it not? Has it not?? HOPE NOT!!! IS IT NOT the local county clerk that is the " tracking agent " for previously described scenario? That public servant would have to be quite " on the ball " to prevent such abuse. Correct? Now, of course and respectfully, none of my preceding remarks refers to vet spouses or any other entitled family members. God bless all vets and their families. ****** As to VOTER registration fraud, oh yes, there must be high vigilance/intense scrutiny to ensure the individual elected is the actual " will of the people. " I believe Madison/Jefferson County exercises such vigilance. PLEASE CONTINUE WITH SAID VIGILANCE! Pass The Peace And Peace Be With You.

In regards to the purge in the Courthouse. What happens when you are running the local election is the voter roll continues to grow and grow over the years. People register to vote who have just moved in and later moved out of the community but they are still on the rolls but are inactive. Another thing that happens is death. So to streamline the tough process of conducting fair elections for all. After several years they purge the inactive voters. I think my mother had to do it atleast once and maybe twice in her eight years serving as clerk. I bet this is what happened. The thing to be concerned is the Dems have a lady who is very aggressive at getting absentee ballots. She has been caught red handed several times stepping over the line. Ex: being at the hospital and registering people being prepped for surgery.

The voter purge had nothing to do with the democrats. Voter registration is in the clerks office and that’s a republican office at this time. It had nothing to do with Julie Berry and her henchman Wilbur the Rat. No voter fraud unless the republicans managed to rig the system this time.

Moon, I'm sorry, but if you going post about voters being purged. Please expand a bit more on the topic before pointing fingers. Please explain the details of the purge. Was it all democrats or was it all republicans or was it a mix? What or who prompted the purge? Was the purge done by a particular party? Was the purge at the county level or state level? I would truly like to weigh in on the topic, but until I can hear all the facts it's hard to draw a intelligent opinion either way. As Sargent Friday would say "just the facts Mam"

There's a lot of us around here that haven't forgotten that Bentz voted to close Dupont and Anderson. Our kids then got scattered with some going all the way out to Rykers Ridge. Parents don't forget.

So when Bentz retired from the city he got disability and then got caught cheating. Haha yeah I can see why Imel would want him if she cant get her pro-referendum girl.

Downtown it’s Henry against Imel/Freeman and-or a gentleman by the name of Bentz. The Imel/Freeman ticket was explained above but in regards to Bentz, I am told he sat on the school board during the Dupont school closure but have not verified that. I have verified that Mr. Bentz resigned halfway through his second school board term due to allegations of disability income "conflicts." (If I understand correctly he was making extra money while accepting disability support payments. He was allegedly forced to resign or lose his disability). Bentz also voted to hire ex-superintendent Ginger Studebaker- so I am not sure how the community will receive his candidacy this time.

Most seem to think the race is between Larry Henry & Gina. Bentz may or may not do well, however, when he announced his candidacy on face book - community members including past MCS administrators posted on HIS page against his candidacy- urging him not to split votes & weaken opportunity for the best candidates. It is my understanding many past board members, past administrators, teachers & especially anti-referendum citizens have thrown their support behind Larry Henry. The pro-referendum & pro Imel folks are supporting Gina. I assume friends & family will support Bentz but am not sure. Regardless one of these three will represent the downtown district.

Glesing & Freeman have joined for a dual ticket against Kring, Yancey & Henry. In essence that’s Imels plan. She has diluted the voting pool by inserting numerous candidates; she is hoping that neither Henry nor Kring can gather enough votes because so many have entered the race. Essentially she has "split" the ticket. In addition, she is working to support her favorites, Glesing & Freeman. She needs to hold at least 2 of the 3 seats up for election to maintain her power. She like many assumes Yancey will win so she must see Kring & Henry defeated to keep her 3 -2 majority. I have been told that any other candidates in the race besides Kring & Henry were encouraged to run by Imel- but again, I haven't confirmed that information yet.

Will Imel resign if Henry is elected? It would probably be in her best interest- and to be honest – according to her recent letters to various citizens criticizing their support of Henry & Kring, her personal life is at the very least a struggle. So perhaps her resignation would serve her family as much as the community. I certainly wish her & her family well regardless. I would expect to see more of the Kring, Yancey, Henry ticket on social media. It’s been everywhere already. I would also expect to see more of Freeman, Glesing ticket posted in coming weeks since this is the preferred pro-referendum/Imel ticket.

Perhaps the other two candidates have name recognition to the extent they don’t have to worry about social media, yard signs or maybe they are just part of Imels plan to dilute the voting pool. I don’t know. Regardless, if candidates wish to send me updates to their platforms please email to the link above. I will be happy to get in touch, verify facts & post accurate information for JBs many readers. Have a wonderful evening - Tami
