Be Sure to Vote in the Village President's Primary on Tuesday, February 17th and "Rules for Radicals" Comes to Town
There are three candidates on the ballot for Village President on Tuesday, February 17th as the current Office Holder is stepping down after 4 years of holding the position.
The top two vote getters will go on to the General Election of April 7, 2009.
Those individuals are Randy Newman, Village Board Trustee, David Phillips, Retired Citizen and former Village President Jefferson E. Davis.
All three candidates bring an interesting perspective to the Office of Village President as they differ on Village Policy, taxes, scope of government, good communication from the Village and the direction for the future of Menomonee Falls.
Only one candidate has a website that openly discusses the issues facing the taxpayers of Menomonee Falls to clearly see what those issues are to have an open and honest debate about them with citizens and the Village Board. That website is www.jefferson-davis.info.
Whatever their positions are on the various issues, the most important thing to do is vote on Tuesday, February 17th.
Our forefathers had incredible vision and made tremendous sacrifices to give us the privilege of voting. Let's honor them by voting.

Rules for Radicals Comes to Town
A number of readers have contacted The Vanguard seeking a response about the endless attacks from a blogger that apparently is asphyxiated with the personal destruction of an individual by living in the past with their obsession of trying to destroy that individual because they dared to ask questions about Village Government and Policy that have over time proven to be true.
Rather than getting involved in a tit for tat exchange with the blogger because that does nothing more than to hurt our community, The Vanguard has chosen to do the right thing by applying the principles of the "good book" of forgiveness, turning the other cheek, praying for those who persecute you, loving your enemies and doing unto others as you would have them do to you.
Sal Alinsky, well known radical Neo-Marxist and community organizer, was complimented and admired by those who wanted to destroy individuals who dared to ask questions of their government or wouldn't give government funds to organizations that weren't in the best interest of America.
It appears that Mr. Alinsky's Rules for Radicals are being lived out in fine fashion in Menomonee Falls by those who have been engaged in questionable Village Policy and the expenditure of taxpayer's money.
Please review Mr. Alinsky's Rules for Radicals and determine for yourself if any of his "tactics" are being used in the Falls and if it is in the best interest of our community (http://www.crossroad.to/Quotes/communism/alinsky.htm).
The Vanguard knows the truth will come out some day and hopefully soon about what has been going on in the Falls for years that has benefited only a handful of people who hang together to make sure word doesn't get out.
Well, the word will be getting out and those who have been engaged in questionable practices with their non-profit organizations and official positions will be held accountable.
When things like this happen, individuals are given three choices:
Be part of it
Look the other way
Do something about it
When individuals do the right thing, everything else just takes care of itself. This will be true of Menomonee Falls as well.
Be sure to vote on Tuesday, February 17th.
