This is your friendly reminder to get out and vote today if you haven’t done so already. On my ballot, here are the deets:
It is incredibly important to elect Brian Hagedorn to the bench. If you would like some reading as to why, go here.
WEST BEND SCHOOL REFERENDUM
Vote NO. If you like, you can go back and read all of the gory details, but if I were to sum it up, we should vote NO because it is way too much money to spend in a district with declining enrollment for something that will not improve educational outcomes one iota. We should not reward the poor fiscal management of the school board by giving them more money to waste.
WEST BEND SCHOOL BOARD
There are three candidates for two seats. It doesn’t matter a hill of beans who you vote for. You will get the same results.
All other races are uncontested.
Let’s hear some predictions about what share Hagedorn gets statewide.
I’m a happy camper this morning. Hagedorn won, and though his 0.49-point win was in the margin of recount, it is well beyond the margin of a free recount.
Also, I see the voters in and around West Bend still have some sense of fiscal responsibility. A word of advice from someone in a community that has been broken – be ready for the next round, because the borrow-and-spenders will never give up until you’re broken.
