Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.
Watch this and see if you don't agree, "Those voices don't speak for the rest of us".
As JT Harris asked the crowd of about 150 people waiting to see US Senate candidate Ron Johnson at the Waukesha County Republican Headquaters Monday night, How many of you are asking God for one more chance to turn this around? My hand shot up as did most in the room.
Then JT asked, How many have been to a Tea Party? Again, hands waved in the air.
How many have been to a Town Hall? The room was full of upraised hands.
It was pretty obvious that this crowd didn't believe the voices of the Liberal Progressives featured in the above clip spoke for them.
I believe the majority of voters tomorrow will vote to "turn this around", but one never knows until the last ballot is counted.
As I mentioned, I already cast my votes, all on the Republican side of the ballot, and voted Yes on the Transportation Fund Advisory Referendum.
Why are they all Republican? Because the Republicans are Pro-Life. They are also fiscally conservative, against wasteful spending on trains, want to reverse ObamaCare, are pro business and pro voter ID, and are more inclined to adhere to the US Constitution...to name just a few reasons.
My Sept. 7th Primary Ballot Picks post goes into more detail on why I chose the candidates I picked. Posts relating to each race will be listed below the individual race; generic ones are listed at the bottom of the post.
Here is the list of my ballot picks for Nov. 2 in the order they appear on the ballot.
Governor & Lt. Governor: Scott Walker and Rebecca Kleefisch
For shame, Tom Barrett, Scott Walker SUPPORTS Stem Cell research!
Walker rally made political hay, ad gained national attention
Lt. Gov. candidate Rebecca Kleefisch on Fox & Friends
How is Barrett "knee deep" in sewer water yet squeaky clean? JournoList?
Attorney General: JB Van Hollen
Secretary of State: David D. King I heard David King speak at the April 15th Madison Tea Party.
State Treasurer: Kurt W. Schuller
United States Senator: Ron Johnson As one of the many who encouraged Ron to enter the race back in early April, he is everything I had hoped he would be as a person and more. It is gratifying to see him run such a fine tuned campaign.
Need a reason to vote Ron Johnson? Ask Michelle Obama
Ron Johnson, Feingold virtually tied in poll" November can't come fast enough!
Ron Johnson enters US Senate race
Ron Johnson would be my ideal candidate

Sen. Feingold turned deaf ear to 97.5% at Listening Session
Representative in Congress District 5: F. James Sensenbrenner Jr. As Congressman Sensenbrenner mentioned at the Ron Johnson rally Monday night, When a nation goes off course, the people are there to right it. Today's Tea Party movement is a good example of the people rising up to right the ship.
State Senator District 5: Leah Vukmir Leah Vukmir has been a solid conservative voice in the Assembly, soon she will be in the State Senate!
What a whopper! "Jim Sullivan supports law enforcement, Vukmir does not" Unbelievable

Senator Jim Sullivan's Town Hall.....GRILLING! OUCH!
Representative to the Assembly District 14: Dale Kooyenga Since Dale is running unopposed, CONGRATULATIONS is in order. Cast your vote for him anyway; he will be another solid conservative voice in Madison.
Wisconsin 14th Assembly Forum tonight in Tosa with Kooyenga...
Sheriff: Daniel Trawicki
Also on November's ballot, a Transportation Fund Advisory Referendum

Wisconsin's primary is 3 weeks away, who are you voting for?
Another local source for candidate info would be Randy's Picks for 2010 Nov. 2 Elections.
Do vote early in the day if you are able. Sometimes long lines develop near closing time. According to election law, under normal conditions, unless you are in line at 8pm, you will not be permitted to vote.
City of Brookfield residents in District 7, remember you now vote outside your district at St. Luke's Catholic Church on Greenfield Ave. and Davidson Road.
Tomorrow morning I am off to do some poll watching in the heart of Milwaukee. I will be interested in seeing how turnout compares there with what I am used to in Brookfield.
Tomorrow evening it's the Country Springs Hotel for me to watch the election results and hear the speechifying. It is going to be a l-o-n-g but exciting day..
