“IS IT TRUE” FOR NOVEMBER 14, 2018

first_imgAny comments posted in this column do not represent the views or opinions of the City-County Observer or our advertisers We hope that today’s “IS IT TRUE” will provoke honest and open dialogue concerning issues that we, as responsible citizens of this community, need to address in a rational and responsible way? IS IT TRUE during the recent midterm election that 58,973 votes were cast?  …the voter turnout of more than 51 percent was a new record for the county in midterm elections?  …we would like to thank Vanderburgh County Clerk, Carla Hayden, her staff and the poll workers for doing an outstanding job in conducting a fair and honest midterm election?  …we also would like to thank all the fine individuals who decided to run for public office?IS IT TRUE that the political coattails of Mike Braun and Congressman Dr. Larry Bucshon helped County Prosecutor Nick Hermann, State Representatives Wendy McNamara and Ron Beacon and County Commission candidate Mike Duckworth, campaigns?IS IT TRUE  the most interesting statement made during the midterm campaign was made by Stan Levco?  …that Mr. Levco publically stated; “if Mr. Hermanns Chief Deputy Gary Schutte would have run for Vanderburgh County Prosecutor he wouldn’t be a candidate for this position”?IS IT TRUE the trouncing of 8th District Congressional candidate Willaim Tanoos (D) at the hands of incumbent Congressman Larry Bucshon (R) was very much expected?  …we won’t be surprised to see past supporters of the former Mayor of Evansville Jonathon Weinzapfel to start a low key campaign to replace Congressmen Dr. Larry Bucshon if he decides to retire at the end of his new term?  …we predict if Mr. Weinzapfel decides to run for United States Congress he will he will make one heck of a candidate for the Democrats?IS IT TRUE after the United States Senator Joe Donnelly’s crushing defeat by challenger Mike Braun of Jasper, there are only two Indiana Democrats left on the Federal level, Representatives Pete Visclosky and André Carson?IS IT TRUE after the midterm election the Democrats failed to take control of the Indiana Senate and House of Representative? …that the Republicans now have a solid Super Majority in the Indiana Senate and House of Representative and now Indiana has officially become a one-party State?IS IT TRUE the Republicans continue to control the Vanderburgh County Council?  …because of the major upset victory by Democrat Jeff Hatfield over Republican Mike Duckworth, the County Commission is now controlled by the Democrats?  …the Evansville City Council is currently controlled by the Democrats by a 6-3 margin?  …that could change because the Mayor of Evansville is expected to personally sponsor a slate of well qualified Republicans to challenge the majority of Democrats running for City Council in the 2019 City election?  …we expect that the local Democratic party will rely heavily on Party Chairman, Scott Danks; County Commissioners Ben Shoulders and Jeff Hatfield to assist them on raising the needed funds to help the Democrats running in the 2019 City election?IS IT TRUE because there are no credible Democratic candidates in the horizon considering a run for Mayor of Evansville it’s expected that Mayor Winnecke will run for re-election and will be elected to an unprecedented third term?  …it obvious that the only way the Democrats can retake control of City Hall is to have a candidate with a strong name recognition such as former US Congressman and County Sheriff Brad Ellsworth, former Evansville Mayor Jonathon Weinzapfel, State Reperseentive Ryan Hatfield or County Commissioner Ben Shoulders?IS IT TRUE we are hearing that several local attorneys are vying to replace the current City Council attorney Josh Claybourn who lives in Newburgh?IS IT TRUE that In the Republican-controlled Warrick County, Democrat Allyson Claybourn won a seat on the Newburgh town council by an impressive vote? …the Republicans swept all other Warrick County and Newburgh seats with more than 60 percent of the vote in every race?IS IT TRUE  that we are pleased that the Honorable Vanderburgh County Circuit Court Judge for Vanderburgh County David D. Kiely received an impressive complimentary vote?  …that Judge Kiely ran unopposed for re-election and we are glad that the Vanderburgh County voters acknowledged he has done an outstanding job as the Circuit Court Judge for Vanderburgh County?IS IT TRUE that the following Vanderburgh County Superior Court Judges also run for re-election as an unopposed candidate?  …they are the Honorable-Margaret Lloyd (Chief Judge), Honorable-Brett Neimeier, Honorable Robert J. Tornatta, and the Honorable Wayne S. Trockman? …we are extremely pleased that the voter of Vanderburgh County also gave them impressive complimentary vote?  …it’s obvious that voters of Vanderburgh County understood that the above judges are doing a great job for the citizens of this community?Footnote: City-County Observer Comment Policy.
