  1. Why use townships instead of county board voting districts?

    If Mike W. is elected they will have to change policy as he will be gung ho on eliminating them.

    If Mike had his way the county board would be reduced in half, and Steve W. would like to see single dist reps.

    Would that mean 12 single rep districts with 12 appointees on the zoning board?

  2. Interesting. We, taxpayers, pay zero for someone to sit on a school board but we pay $110 per meeting for someone to sit in a meeting relative to someone requesting a change in zoning?

    And we actually expect a school board member to stand up for us against ‘organized labor’?

    Is anyone surprised that the great majority of ELECTED school board members are there to protect the interests of the teachers and administrators? Why else would they ‘serve’?

    Are there other ‘committees’ in the County which provide compensation for volunteers?
