$658 Tax/Fee Savings Plan for Every Homeowner Starting in 2011 and March 10th Chamber Trustee Forum Broadcasts
For full disclosure purposes, I am a reader of the Vanguard and have asked permission to post the attached press release from the Jefferson Davis for Trustee Campaign.
Davis is challenging 20-year incumbent Mike McDonald for Trustee Seat 4.
Seeing that the local papers won't print much about the April 6Th Election and the vast differences that exist between Davis and McDonald, I thought it would be good for the taxpayers of Menomonee Falls to at least know what some of the major differences are in policy proposals the two candidates have so they can at least make an informed decision for the April 6Th Election.
I also learned today that the Waukesha Municipal Judge, Joseph Cook, who will determine Trustee McDonald's fate for alcohol related offenses involving obstructing Menomonee Falls Police Officers and being in a bar after hours when he was caught hiding in a utility closet as part of an investigation in 2009, has received a petition asking the judge to hold the trial for McDonald before the election to protect our community from unsafe drivers and to prevent elected officials from trying to use their position to convince the Police Chief to let them off or fire the officers who arrested them.
Because voters won't see the March 10Th Chamber sponsored Trustee Forum announced in the papers, by the Chamber or on Falls Cable Access, the light schedule of broadcast times between now and April 6Th are as follows:
Sundays - 1:30 and 8:45 P.M.
Mondays - 7:30 A.M. and 11:45 P.M.
Tuesdays - 2:10 and 9:00 P.M.
Wednesdays - 12:40 and 7:15 P.M.
Thursdays - 5:10 and 6:00 P.M.
Fridays - 8:00 A.M. and 11:30 P.M.
Saturdays - 1:30 and 10:15 P.M.
A review of the Falls Cable Access Channel schedule (http://fallscableaccess.com/weekly_schedule.html) over the next 3 weeks shows the same old programs, some from 2009, that have been playing for a long time now along with other programs that aren't even local being shown during prime time repeatedly when it would be easy and proper to drop in the Chamber sponsored Trustee Forum.
The Chamber and Falls Cable Access are both highly taxpayer subsidized organizations by the Menomonee Falls Village Board with the Chamber receiving over $300,000 from state and local taxpayers along with the Department of Tourism while Cable Access was given a no-bid, 10-year, nearly $1,000,000 taxpayer contract from the Village Board in 2009.
The Chamber Director, her husband on the Village Board and the only part-time Cable Access Employee, who earns a salary of $52,000 from the taxpayers, are all supporters and or financial campaign contributors to Mike McDonald.
If you would like the Chamber to run the Trustee Forum at times when people can actually view it instead of when they are asleep or on their way to work, contact the Chamber Director at email@example.com.
Myself and about 40 other people attended the March 10th Chamber sponsored Trustee Forum and any intelligent person, after listening to the 2 candidates for nearly 50 minutes, would have no problem making the right decision of whom to vote for on April 6th.
One candidate clearly had ideas to lower taxes and fees to stimulate the local economy and the other candidate blamed the economy and the State of Wisconsin to keep things the way they are.
Watching the forum will show you the difference between the candidates.
Here's the Press Release from March 15Th sent out to the 4 newspapers covering Menomonee Falls and to citizens on an emailing list for voters in Menomonee Falls:
