Last night at the Kenosha County Board organizational meeting, two of the board’s most extreme democrats were elected to the two positions of leadership. Monica Yuhas (D) and Daniel Gaschke (D) were voted to be the chair and vice chair of the Kenosha County Board respectively for the next two years.

The liberal nominee, Monica Yuhas garnered 12 votes and the conservative nominee, David Geersten garnered 9. Current chairman, Gabe Nudo, who was whipping votes for months to secure an unprecedented second term, was not nominated and thus could receive no votes. Two members were not yet sworn in and couldn’t vote.

Democrats on the board will have a solid majority for the next two years. This comes after the 2022 election that placed conservatives in charge for the first time in decades. This was the first vote for county board after the riots of 2020.

Last night, eight new members of the board were sworn in. Thirteen current members were sworn in after winning re-election. Two members, newcomer Felix Garcia and long-time member Jeff Gentz, were not able to be sworn in today due to pending recount appeals.

By secret ballot, each of the 21 members wrote down a name on a scrap piece of paper and placed them into a basket. County Clerk Regi Waligora then read off the names, one by one as the tension grew. Until the votes were tabulated, it wasn’t known which side the board members were on. Tonight it became clear as the difference in the candidates couldn’t have more of a contrast. One liberal democrat running against one conservative republican.

Kenosha Police Recommend Felony Charges Against Ousted County Board Supervisor Andy Berg

After reviewing dozens of pages of bank records, Kenosha Police believe that the embattled former County Board Member Andy Berg committed one or more felonies. According to a Kenosha Police spokesperson, many of the charges from Berg’s bank account for his non-profit “Garden of Eatin,” didn’t appear to benefit the non-profit at all, but instead, benefitted Berg, himself.

  1. This is supposed to be a nonpartisan body. I’ve not seen anything substantial to say that Monica is particularly liberal. I know she’s hard-working and listens to people on the ground. You have Knezz now on the board and there’s no question she is a liberal Democrat.

    1. open your eyes and watch how she votes!!! almost always with the Democrats. LOOK at her supporters- democrats.

    2. Wrong, it’s a non-partisan election, not a non-partisan position. Once in office you can associate with any party you want.

        2. Andy,

          Says the coward who couldn’t sign that he lost. Way to be the hypocrite you cried on your page about.

      1. Andy is taking it hard . Sgt Hard !
        Did Zach Rodriguez lose ?
        I’m sorry I didn’t run against John Morrissey.
        I couldn’t compete with his name recognition
        At least Joe Biden wanna be John O’Day packed it in . He was an embarrassment .
        I think the people who voted for Stephanie Knezz should have a red D tattooed on their foreheads . For Dumasses !!!!

    1. Yup especially since they pushed bashaw out and replaced him with someone that is new to the area and has no idea what he’s doing. Just listening to him talk he isn’t going to be half as invested in the seat as his predecessor was.

    1. If they can’t see how dumb they are for their sick ideals and agendas then you cannot expect these dummies to see how stupid and libtarded their hair looks. 😅

  2. What a sad day for conservatives in Kenosha County. Republicans worked for more than a decade to flip the county board and finally succeeded with the last election, just two years ago in 2022. Under Nudo and the new RPKC Board, everything has fallen apart. Seeing Yuhas up there is nauseating. Shame on all of you who sat home on your asses instead of helping conservative candidates!! And shame on all of you who supported Nudo after he showed his true colors. This is the result.

Dumbass libtarded dumocrats will be dumbasses for life therefore being too dumb to realize how dumb they are for not knowing that libtarded dumocrats are ruining the world so they continually keep voting for dummies and over breeding to raise up more dummies! We are doomed!

  4. Amazingly Mathewson knows who voted for who when it was supposed to be anonymous? Might he have some insight with the help of a county board member? Interesting to say the least.

      1. Every vote by every elected official should be public knowledge! The voters who elected these representatives have the absolute right to know how each and every one of them vote on everything.

  5. Yuhas? WOW. Her dream come true while it’s a nightmare for Kenosha County. My guess is all those that voted for Yuhas knew that she was accused of, and admitted to, committing a felony when she was running for election in 2020 yet they voted for her anyway. She wasn’t charged by the Racine DA only because of timing. I have no respect for her whatsoever.

    1. Retarted enough not to know how to post. Keep maga in your head and remain looking and sounding like a leftist idiot

  7. Kenosha just cant rise above that old factory mentality and realize these arent your union brothers from the motors.Whole new breed of libtards alive and well.

    1. Me first Despots like Comrade Curt will always continue to seek power positions like being the Chairman of the City (Liquor) Licensing & Permit Committee.

    1. Well , George Soros did in fact give a bunch of $$ to the local Dems —- but I think poor turnout was a huge problem here

  8. If you can’t keep Landry’s fat ass off the school board you need to reassess your strategy. Your credibility is completely shot.

    1. Right. Because anyone on the school board stops the clowns like the article above this one. No one gives a fuck about the school board or Landry. kUSD is a joke. What’s funny is your dumbass thinks anyone that disagrees is MAGA. Go to berg and Joel and talk about your leftist cult. Unless this is Andy.

  9. How quickly people forget that the libs had no problem with our City being burned down. Only 8 of the County Supervisors spoke out against it. And how quickly people forget that the budget got balanced and thousands of dollars were saved, not wasted.

    1. Kenosha County budgeting has long been a game of smoke and mirrors and a lack of transparency.

      One common trick is to “balance” by deferring projects until they become more costly. Think skipping a $200 filling and then having to pay for a $2000 crown.

      1. And, no one asks questions. For example- the Hwy S project. That project went way over budget, as a direct result of our shitty Highway commissioner. Many other projects were the same- over budget because of his shotty decision-making. Kerkman could have tossed his ass two years ago, but she didn’t. She could have saved the county literally millions of dollars if she would have gotten rid of one single moron. But, hey— nothing to see, here.

        1. How many engineers in DPW, and what’s their engineering consulting expenses? They’re either hiring incompetent engineers to begin with, or they just don’t want to work.

          Likely a combination of both. How many people in that department are still working from home?

          My neighbor has a dark colored Highway department truck sitting in his driveway from 7am-noon or 1pm every day, then back home by 4:30/5:00. When does he actually work?

  10. What is the legal basis for a public body to use a secret ballot to elect a chair? Does this not violate open meetings laws? This isn’t supposed to be the politburo.
