Here are more readers letters..............
Again, please do not use my name but.....
Every time I vote at the polls I am literally walking up to
the doors and the "Ken Miller" groupie's stand so far down
the sidewalk and in the middle of the sidewalk that if you
don't have a strong personality or aren't intimidated
easily, it can be very uncomfortable so you put your head
down and hope you don't see anyone you know. Or you park
below and climb up the hill close to the door so they don't
"spot" you. Is anyone really going to call Harriet Stone or
Victoria Hanko or even Dave Monteith for that matter and
tell them "I'm a baby and can't walk up by myself?" It's
ridiculous that she even offered that. How about telling
the groupie's to just "move" out of the way so as not to
intimidate or influence by fear the voting process. I
personally could care less about them but they are so
ignorant of proper polling etiquette. If people want
answers, they will ask. You can politely sit at a table or
stand for that matter and wait for people to come to you or
say nicely, do you need any information before you vote? No
one does that. Oh wait, the last election I saw that done
was at Dilibero's.
The people sitting at the table, when you give them your
name, give you snide looks because they are part of "them".
The Klan. They know who I am, they know who I have always
supported and its a waste of my time to go to the polls
based on what you have uncovered and reported lately. I
don't see any signs out of anyone else to vote for or signs
that say to "write in" anyone so it makes no sense to vote.
They aren't getting one vote from me or my family. Clearly,
its a toss up who wins because Zoe and Kate Damsgard who
have more money than god have made sure that they all stand
for the same greed as Ken Miller and will do a fine job
continuing to "screw" all the people in this township by
keeping the same old same old alive..
And, may I say that our road crew "sucked" in this last
storm. Oh yeah, Ken's in charge of them. Figures."
A note from CM
I would suggest that if anyone is concerned about going to the
polls alone then go along with your neighbours, as a small
group. And there is nothing in the rules of politics that says
you must give an honest answer if you are asked who you intend
to vote for. After all, it is supposed to be a SECRET ballot.
"Hooray! I love your response to Harriet - I actually
called last year to complain about the crowding by candidate
inside the building - felt like a fly in a spider's web.
The elections folks were supposed to have come out and
checked on it. Frankly I take issue with them being crowded
around the door outside too and all along the ramp into the
I campaigned for someone and stayed in the parking lot away
from the ramp so that those who wished to do so could
Thanks Chickenman. You can quote me if you like but please
do so anonymously."
If I am a Democrat but support the stance(s) that Maria
Holderness stands for who would be the closest representation.
A note from CM
Well that would be Maria herself. The information on how to vote
for a write in candidate is attached.
I am just curious how and who is intimidated at the polls? I have
only voted twice at the polls here but I am curious what to look
for when I go on Nov 8th.
Thanks for all you do!! You have piqued my interest in local
government as well as my friend Maria Holderness. Not an easy
Keep up the good and hard work!! If you have children you are
setting a great example of public service!
You know my
feelings, vote for write-in candidates Richard Malasics (6 year
term) www.vote4rich.com and
Maria Holderness (2 year term) www.vote4maria.com. Their
message has NEVER wavered, always backed with facts and
references and their concern is the proper operation of the
Township, financially and fairly. This is your township, not the
politicians. Let them know with your write-in vote on Tuesday,
