Letter: Enough with the circus—her observations from Trenton on voting dayTO THE EDITOR: Women were within 100 feet of my town hall gathering signatures to recall Harsdorf.

TO THE EDITOR: Women were within 100 feet of my town hall gathering signatures to recall Harsdorf.
Their approach was asinine. “Was I aware of current events and happy?” They illegally talked about rights for schools to special levy and approached voters before they voted.
These two men were not from Trenton, don’t own Wisconsin property, and were being paid to collect signatures. After I was called a profanity, I said it spoke even more of their character being the one was a River Falls Alderman convicted of possession of drug paraphernalia. They got about one signature per 40 voters. It speaks for itself.
Voter ID-these men thought school IDs should be sufficient. Really? If you are claiming to live in Wisconsin and want the right to vote here, did you transfer your driver’s License? Did you register your vehicle? If not, vote at the address on your government-issued ID. Plus, school IDs are also given to foreigners going to school here.
Teachers said they wouldn’t sign the recall, it has created discontent toward them they didn’t ask for. Unlike some districts and Democrats, our teachers showed up for work.
One recall supporter started yelling and running at me. Fortunately for him, his father diffused him and sent him home.
If you don’t agree with a decision a legislator makes, don’t vote for them in the next election. The cost of a recall would first add to this fiasco. I commend Harsdorf for being in Madison and doing her job.
I love my job, but should be able to choose if I want a Mafia Union. My dues are going from $39 to $70 per month. Follow the money—the Unions don’t want to lose their opportunity to force me to pay dues.
Don’t let them buy elections. Have some integrity.
