"Oligarchy-- meaning "a few", and is a form of power structure in which power effectively rests with a small number of people. These people could be distinguished by royalty, wealth, family ties, corporate, or military control. Such states are often controlled by a few prominent families who pass their influence from one generation to the next."

In a county with 50,000 people, it seems strange that the prominent leaders are all connected.

Let's see...Mayor Kopczick is cousins with Jonathon Bates, then the mayor picks Belt & Bates to be City Attorneys...Judge Lance Peterson picks Sobol for judge, who then picks Bates as his replacement...who just happens to be the cousin of Judge Peterson. Judge Peterson's wife works for Sheriff Marketti, who is so close of family friends that his family vacations with Scott Belt and Mayor Kopczik. Judge Sobol and City Attorney Scott Belt are close enough friends that they have real estate deals together...

Can Morris not find other qualified people outside of this circle?? Seriously, it's not what you know, it's who you know here!! And you know all kinds of deals happen in private. Are they talking about you? If you're not in the click, then probably.
Can you imagine if a serious crime was committed by a family member of one these people? THEY WOULD SKATE because they would be in cahoots with the MAYOR, TWO JUDGES, the STATE'S ATTORNEY, the SHERIFF, a judge's wife, AND the CITY ATTORNEY.
Never have I heard of such a lack of checks & balances in city government. What a soap opera.

Not all rep's are good. Have you read that stuff about the chairman Severson? He needs to go too. Let's start all over.

Today there isn't a republican on the ballot. just two Dem's. So I would say to pick Neal just in case- that way, in November, if the GOP doesn't win and Dem's do, at least it will be Neal in there and NOT Bates!
We HAVE to start somewhere to break up this monopoly! Can't let one family (group) run our whole city and county!
Vote Neal today, let's get it started!

I agree with you 100% about county politics, but I cannot go with Neal after knowing his past. Think about it, everyone in the county knows his past. That is not the kind of man I want prosecuting drug offenders.

To "Know Him" is reason enough to not vote for him.
