Can The Fighting End?
I’m hoping now that the election is over that everyone will come together. The voters, even though they were a small number, have spoken. I hope both sides will work to make Oak Lawn a better place.
We hope everyone will work together. If Tuesday night’s meeting was any indication we may be entering a new era where at least there is hope.
Why Harass people?
I had a sign up for the unsuccessful candidates in the last election. I was bombarded with visits from various public officials trying to “convince” me that I was making the bad choice. I also received a packet that was addressed in an individual’s handwriting. It was apparent that the visits and the packet was for the purpose of intimidation. I took my sign down to stop it. I know several people that just didn’t vote.
We are sorry to hear that you took the sign down because everyone should respect the rights and opinions of the fellow citizens. Harassing someone who has clearly decided on their candidate is rude and shouldn’t happen. However, you also had the right to ignore those people. It is unfortunate if those visits suppressed the vote.
Will There Be a Second Hit List?
I had a lawn sign for Streit and one night I noticed a car pull up by my house. They proceeded down the street to a neighbor who also had a Streit sign. Do you think they were taking my name for a second hit list?
Disabled my A..
I thought Andy S. was disabled. He was working on the campaign and shouldn’t be collecting disability payments from my tax money.
It probably depends on what type of disability he has in order to receive that check. There are physical disabilities and mental disabilities. We agree that able bodied adults should not be receiving social security disability checks. He should get a job. If you think he violated the law, report him.
Don’t vote by Computer
When I was voting by computer, I hit one candidate and the other popped up. Luckily, I told the Judge and it was corrected but I wonder if anyone else had this problem and whether they told the judges or simply let the vote stand for the wrong person.
The computers can be calibrated in a way that records a vote for the wrong person if you hit the screen closer to the candidate that you don’t want. If you notice the vote is incorrect, fix it or have the judge fix it. Otherwise, the whole thing will be fixed.
