After the votes were counted, the KUSD school board will remain under solid liberal control with a 5-2 majority. The Wisconsin Democrat party’s $136,000 paid dividends in this election. Here are the vote counts:

As KCE predicted, almost 3,500 people voted for a mentally ill candidate, Angela Cassity, who ran around her neighborhood naked, that wasn’t seaking election. Perhaps the voters in Kenosha aren’t as informed as they should be. Democrats Marry Modder and Todd Price will keep their seats, and new-comer, Sabrina Landry, who married a man convicted of sexual assault, will join the board. Newcomer Bob Tierney also joins the board. Tierney had the following to say to KCE Tuesday evening:

“I worked very hard and made it a point during my campaign to listen to all sides. At the end of the day I ran because I want to improve the education situation for all students. It was tough running against so much outside money during this election. Luckily the zuckerbucks referendums passed keeping outside money out of our elections. We spent the least amount of money and actually went out and knocked doors. I want to thank everyone in the community who showed up to vote and I will work as hard as I can to represent the entire community. I really want to thank Angela Kretchmer and Jon Kim. We worked as hard as we could but unfortunately our efforts fell short to the candidates with the most money. This needs to change if we want the best candidates representing the community. Now the real work starts!”

  1. TL DR, better the devil you know than the devil you don’t. The MAGA agenda doesn’t play among educated voters. If they would have ran on pre-Trump talking points, the outcome would have been balanced.

    2. It’s always the biggest morons who toot their horn about being “educated.” “Educated” is such a subjective term that, these days, seems to be confused with “brainwashed.” These fools tend to call their approved propaganda “education.” Under their definition of “educated,” today’s students are the ones working the drive thru who freeze in panic when you hand them a ten and three pennies on an order totaling $7.03; They have no idea why you gave three pennies. Why they will be well educated in (thanks to bozo and palls) is how to have gay sex, how to give a blow job and how to find hook-ups online. You know, all the important things for third graders to be “educated” in.

    1. Totally agree! Kenosha is going farther down the drain. We got got great role models Milwaukee,Racine, Waukegan and Chicago.

  2. Parents! pull your kids out of public education now! Close the rest of those woke schools. the fact that voters chose schoolboard members who will opening push LGBTQ and whatever the hell else deviant behavior they can find, as well as pushing porn in the schools is disgusting. Sabrina Landry has a filthy mouth and is married to a pervert–this is WHO YOU PICKED to represent your children. Enjoy it

  3. Looks like enrollment will go down that much more, by those that chose to re-elect the same stooges!! So glad my kid is out of KUSD after this year!!! What’s it going to take for the people to open their eyes and realize that the Dumbacrats aren’t making decisions in the best interest of our children!! 🤬

  4. Kretchmer only campaigned in White Caps, at least according to her social media posts. Kim hasn’t had a social media post since January. It takes courage and effort to run but damn you have to try to win too. Outside Democrat money but what did the local gop do to Win?

    10
    1. All the GOP does is post on it’s Kenosha County website and tag along with Mom’s for Liberty. KUSD is the largest bite of our real estate tax, I have personal experience. Any candidate, who runs for KUSD board and does not get union endorsement, starts election day 3500 votes behind (KUSD employees and their spouses), and it’s also about name recognition, like Modder. Modder’s been around way too long and is to imbedded in the system to reverse the rapid decline in enrollmetn and test results. Rebecca Stevens has been on the board forever. She used to hang out for lunch at Radigan’s with Joe Kiriacki, former head of the teacher union. She has the most name recognition, so in spite of her lording over a failing school system for over 20 years, she get’s reelected. She and the union gave us the little turd, Kyle Flood, who was elected holding onto her skirt hem. Too bad Lamar Madison, who came in second with 12.000 votes last year, was transferred to California by his employer. He had enough name recognition to win a seat along with Tierney, another military veteran.

      11
      1. The GOP can post on its social site because of all the work they are doing and can share.
        Show me the GOP tagging along with MFL…that’s ridiculous. You have no clue what you are talking about!

    2. Kretchmer knocked doors all over KUSD District to include White Caps. She was a high performing candidate and worked her tail off knocking for herself and others.
      She also collected nomination signatures for multiple candidates.
      The local GOP has been out every Saturday since February knocking doors, hosted multiple candidate events, raised money for candidates, and much more. Take a look at their FB page or subscribe to their newsletter and you’ll see the hundreds of hours put in…,all by volunteers.

      What did you do?

      It’s hard enough to find candidates to run and then keyboard warriors like you make people not want to run,
      Sit down…you’re part of the problem!!

      1. I’ll remain anonymous. I’ve lost a KUSD election. Not a dime of help, but that was when KEA was spending $40K on the elections. Someone needs to help lead the KUSD elections to push a group of candidates working together to minimize expenses and the cost of handouts. Amber I. is overwhelmed. I worked hard for Lamar Madison, very hard, and he got 12,000 votes, the most ever for a second place finish. An ad for Lamar appeared on KCE. Kevin’s charge is very cheap for the exposure, and isn’t it interesting that Lamar is a veteran, and so is Tierney? I wrote the only VOP for the Sunday Kenosha News, which still gets to 6000 readers. I was at VA, and a nurse recognized my name and said she’d vote for Lamar. MFL provided funding for Lamar, but not because he is a veteran. Lamar was a slam dunk at the veterans’ groups. I’ll guarantee that word got out to veterans groups who passed his name on to family and friends. It’s all about name recognition, and I don’t think the republican website gets visits from undecided voters for the KUSD election. I didn’t get any mailings. Nobody dropped off anything at my home.

        It’s OK to be critical of the reasons for conservatives coming in 4-7, but don’t lay it all on me. It’s about name recognition, name recognition, name recognition, and we don’t do an adequate job of it. People vote for Stevens and Modder, because they recognize their names, not their LACK of accomplishment. I’ve fought the battle as best I can.

    3. I believe Kretchmer and Tierney put in the work as it shows in final numbers. Sadly, Kim and Thomas didn’t. No FB or social outreach for either one. If you want to win, put some effort in it. Sad we didn’t have other driven candidates that would actually fight for this position.

  5. So glad to have my kids out of KUSDemonic. Glad Tierney got elected, but with the majority still pervs and groomers, I doubt he will be able to do much.

  6. What is the matter with parents with kids in KUSD? They must like having kids that have low test scores and being told by their teachers that being gay is right!

      1. Reading your reply tell me how you got here if being gay is right? Do you have a job or do you live in your mommy’s basement?

    1. Although schools/teachers should absolutely not be confusing kids, being gay is not wrong. Christians aren’t supposed to judge but here you are! I have many gay friends, several that are conservative politically and not a single one feels their sexuality is a choice. Also, none of the gay people I know (some for over 40 years) have ever crossed the line with a child and do not approve of some of the crazy stuff happening these days, being gay does not make you a bad person or a criminal.

        1. That is ridiculous! Being gay does not make a person a pedophile, their are plenty of straight people that are pedophiles. All pedophiles are criminals and should be prosecuted.

  7. KUSD 2024-2025. More pedophile staff and more books in the library about dudes blowing other dudes and boys dressed up like chicks. At least the test scores in core subjects that mean anything will be higher. NOT!

  8. The teachers union is a thug organization. It’s one of the strongest unions out there and have tons of money to throw around. If you want to beat them you really have to go all in. Look at Milwaukee… those idiots voted to give them a substantial amount of money for mostly teachers and administrators. Emphasis on administrators. They threatened to close schools if they didn’t get the money. Even though they just got a huge amount a few years ago without any positive results. Even though people are struggling to make ends meet they still voted for it. It’s absolutely amazing. The money that’s wasted in school systems would shock most people. I see it every single day.

  9. True but God hates homosexuality and also teaches to hate their sin and not the sinner. Those being gay isn’t a crime, it is a sin under God. By the way, stop taking scripture out of context and use it for your narrative you will be judged for not keeping Gods word.
