Law Firm Hired By Kenosha County Concludes Violations By Former Board Member – Milwaukee District Attorney Refuses To Take Action

Leading up to this April’s election, when County Board member Andy Berg (D) lost his seat, he admitted to handing out “hundreds” of county maps and “hundreds” business cards during the election season.

  1. Is this a Q&A session or is it just Pete asking the typical softball questions.

    Im dying to know why Bogdala flipped on his decision for the casino. Its clearly not a good deal for Kenosha.

    1. Bogdala is a total flip-flopper….he will keep flipping and flopping….based on who he is talking to and who’s vote he wants. Can’t trust him, ever.

    2. You see that pic with him and Sergeant Hard? It’s obvious Berg told him to vote for it or he would release more info…

  2. Last night all candidates gave an answer that they knew the people wanted to hear. Bennett said there are to much drunk driving and bars, as he has DUIs. Lol can’t make this stuff up

    1. I’ve never been to a comedy show before. For $2….this could be my first. But you know the old saying…you get what you pay for..

  3. Thanks for the heads-up; I may actually go to this.

    Yes, I realize that it will probably be no more than we can find on their campaign websites (“Vote for me because I love Kenosha and will lead us confidently into the future!”) but hearing them talk may help. Right now it’s “Who is the LEAST weird of the people running?” So far I’ve winnowed it down to two.

    1. I tuned in to WGTD forum and I must say only 2 candidates stood out. Bogdala and Spottswood. They actually were able to articulate their responses effectively, they seemed well educated and informed.

      Others wanted more tiny homes, (not in my neighborhood) Another, people drive too fast, more clean bathrooms in the parks.More urban areas, get to know your neighbors. I know my neighbors and No I don’t care to know their business.
      So, realistically 2 candidates. Koerri, start by running for alderman and gaining experience and learning the ins/ outs of our city.

      1. Koerri. Lol. A guy with no experience, no job, and no transportation. Using his “tech savvy” as a running platform. Video games and some wack Facebook lives. It’s clear it’s for donations and money. Is he going to ride his skateboard to work?

      2. Spottswood said the word “migrant” is offensive. She will turn Kenosha into a liberal hell hole like San Francisco. Before we know it, we will dodging actual shit on the streets!

        1. She’s been isolated from the results of her own kind for years, and produced NOTHING useful during her seatwarming days on the City Council. the last thing she needs is to get a promotion. Talk about the Peter Principal! I’m disgusted by Bogdala’s flop on the casino and would like to know why he voted for it, but I don’t see any alternative. Spottswood is as much a clown as the rest of the group-“Bogdala by Default” for mayor should be the new mantra.

  4. Kevin, I will not vote for anyone of these liberals. Why can’t we ever have anyone that’s more conservative to run in this town.. you have Lydia who is an ultra liberal. I would never vote for that POS .. no one in my neighborhood I won’t reveal where it’s at will not even vote sick of this city .. the last mayor let BLM burn the city down, and then he turned to the black community to heal. That city didn’t stick up for the police but a fraud.

    1. City ordinances that forbid prosecuting vigilantes might help. 🤔
      You know, the opposite of what we have now, where we don’t even prosecute many criminals.

  5. Slobber up to the Kenosha bar and listen to the multicultural circus clowns answer the tough question about roundabouts and potholes. Step right up! Step right up!

    1. They will try to distract you with talk about public works and potholes, like you said. They want you to believe that aldermen and the mayor are just another city staff, there to help you with snow plowing, garbage and permits etc. Pat themselves on the back. No, they definitely don’t funnel millions of dollars to big business and special interests to turn Kenosha into a concrete jungle and taxes skyrocket. Nope, we don’t have a $300 million debt, higher than most cities our size…, no way…look over here, we just installed fiber for you so your Internet will be cheaper Yay

      1. Why not continue on and bring change? Don’t give up so soon, I’m sure it’s hard standing up to the corruption within.

  6. If you go to the city of Kenosha page and look up the nine Mayoral candidates, Mary Morgan (a big Trump supporter) has the email address of “wis4lydia” – this is a fact. Check it.

    The rumor part of it is that her entire candidacy was spearheaded by Spottswood to help split the votes with Bogdala.

  7. I went, and it was interesting. However, the questions definitely were softball. I would have loved to have heard the candidates respond to a question about coping with the city debt: what taxes will be raised, what services will be cut, what gold-plated projects will be terminated.

  8. I think Bogdala will win. The only other two serious contenders were Mackay and Spottswood. I agree that the questions were soft and didn’t really address any serious issues.
