Ronald bentz ,get real.He says he will get rid of one of the judge jobs to save money but re ran for that job and was defeated.Whats the deal big boy if you can't have the job no one can.Why do crazy people always think they can get elected to public office.Then after they loose they cry foul and and start trying to turn anyone involved in for anything he can think of.beware of this guy.
