  • Valor7: What I tried to say is that the actual money would not be there that quick. But a loan against that would work if they are willing to do that.

  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

At its meetingSunday at Union South, UW Students for John Edwards outlined its plansto help elect the 2008 presidential hopeful.
   U.S. Senator John Edwards, a candidaterunning for the 2008 presidential election, is coming to Madisonsometime in the coming year, UW Students for John Edwards announced attheir kickoff meeting Sunday at Union South.
“John Edwardswill be coming to Madison, and I want to be able to pack that placewith a thousand people,” said Peter Rickman, student organizer of SFJE and state director for the campaign.
Student supporters said they admired Edwards for his honesty, leadership and his willingness to combat issues of social justice.
“JohnEdwards isn’t the sexiest candidate for presidency—he’s not AfricanAmerican and not a woman—but he is the one who gets to the heart of thematter and is standing up for how this country really should be,”UW-Madison junior Sarah Ready said.
Ben Taft, co-chair of SFJE and UW-Madison senior, said Edwards is a candidate who is “not afraid to go out on a limb.”
“I support him because he speaks from his conscience about issues of social justice, and his policies back it up,” Taft said.
Rickmansaid the campaign is not just about getting Edwards elected nextNovember but about getting changes implemented right now.
“Theeven numbered years aren’t the only times that we care about theseissues,” Rickman said. “A huge part of our campaign is taking action:political action and action in one’s community. The government can’tfix all of our problems.”
Rickman said the upcoming year is a “golden opportunity” for students to take a leadership role and make a difference.
“Youcan be the one who says ‘I helped elect that president; I helped builda social-justice government,’” Rickman said. “John Edwards is not acandidate of big money, and he needs people to help make it happen.”
Rickman confirmed that Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz would be endorsing Edwards in the upcoming campaign.
“TheDemocrat Party needs to be able to win in all 50 states, and there’sone candidate that’s going to do that: John Edwards,” Rickman said.
