  1. @McHenry voter– Originally from Bristol, WI, I have been a resident of Wonder Lake for 10 years, prior to that I lived in Harvard for 2 years.

    I’m a resident of District 6 and am a fiscally responsible “parent” to 3 children– my husband of 11 years and our 2 Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers. 🙂

    If you read the Northwest Herald, than you’ve probably read at least 1 of the many LTE I’ve written criticizing the ever expanding leviathan that is government, the erosion of our freedoms, and calls for change in the way we think about politics & policies.

  2. Only Reickert & White are to be recommended for the 3 open spots on the Ethics Commission, per the letter I received today.

    I guess it’s politics as usual–even on the Ethics Commission.

  3. LOL…”Ethics”…lol…after hiring a sworn law enforcement supervisor with such an Ugly criminal record, the county really should just end this farce once and for all.

    Anyone one of these people back that hire or don’t publicly make a statement on it at very least and they should not consider “ethics” anywhere in their personal descriptors.

    I had high regard for Cherie Rickert at NIMC, but if she and the others here stay silent on hiring of a police commander with such disgusting criminal record they shouldn’t really be putting this on any resume.

    I expect it will follow them locally for some time.
