TIS THE SEASON, to get signatures for your nomination papers for public office. nothing in these times of political unrest is so important. it is important because the people you elect will make the decisions you will have to live with and pay for.
Government is politics and politics is government. take it or leave it. some noble citizens are gearing up to take it to the ballot box and become a part of the real American dream. DEMOCRACY.
ALDERMAN ELECTIONS 2012.
Yes it will be Alderman until further notice from the city.
in an unexpected and surprising comment to my last blog ALDERMAN ELECTIONS 2012, an incumbent Alderman requests a legal opinion from myself.
You can read the blog for yourself so i will only paraphrase it.
ALDERMANIC ELECTIONS 2012 PART 3
This case came to me over the internet and i will not print it out. you can try Associated Presshelenair.com or http://helenair.com/news/local.
The decision may or may not be legal precedent in Wisconsin and i am not going to research it any further. my concern as a blogger is enough. but it is a federal court decision.
The City of Brookfield a perfect opportunity in the upcoming elections to elect Aldermen who are willing to reduce the size of government. We can become a leader of conservative government which is smaller and more fiscally sound. A step in the right direction.
There are 7 Aldermanic districts and 14 Aldermen elected which means having 2 Aldermen for each district.
This is a follow up. i asked , for the first time , to delete something. an ad selling political signs. not done so im back again.
This post is very simple.
Tv does it, magazines do it and news sources honor it. so why not have our own person of the year. As always there are many deserving people in the City of Brookfield. This choice is on a larger scale because of the downturn of the economy, the housing crisis and the need to hold the fiscal line.
This person, a resident of the City of Brookfield, did all that it takes to keep our fair city in a strong fiscal position without giving up the quality of services to the citizens.
To be consistent with my view of open government you are advised that today, December 23, 2011, i was present at city hall and filed with the city clerk a declaration of candidacy for Alderman of the 1st District.
Some local press and blogs may be behind in purely local news so in all fairness my announcement is to clarify any rumors or misinformation.
