Having served on the county board for 15 years, I had the privilege of working with Kathy Michael. She has worked diligently to expand the outreach of her office to the community.
Her opponent has made accusations regarding voter suppression in the county clerk's office. In the years she has held that position, there has never been any accusation of voter suppression in that office because it does not exist. The county board has to approve all polling places and any changes that are recommended. It takes both Republicans and Democrats to pass any recommendations. It has been said if you have the facts, pound the facts (which Kathy has) and if you don't, pound the table. We have seen a lot of table pounding by Ms. Richards and the local Democratic Party. Rise above the noise with your vote by re-electing Kathy Michael.
