I'm Voting for both Ned Stichman and Leonhard Caflisch in April. It is extremely important for anyone that wants to see positive changes in the direction of our community to vote for both of them together, otherwise either of the others, Meier or Chappuie will side with Derril which is what Micky needs to survive. Great job in the primary, now lets get this finished in the general in April.

Because there are 2 seats up for election, you will have the choice of voting for 2 or fewer in April.

Boneheads always screw this up every time they vote for one of two that will change for the good then turn around and vote for a turd on the other.

That is why people need to pay attention this time so that does not happen. If everyone reminds their friends and neighbors to register and vote, it is quite possible real positive change could happen for Independence this time.

I cannot wait to vote and elect both Caflisch and Stichman as the new commissioners. It is with high hopes they have discussed the changes they intend to make in city hall and that they have a new city manager that they both agree will make the department head changes and eliminate usless positions that only add to the city debt. Other than the city manager and his assistant, none of the current staff necessarily need terminated and could be reassigned to other duties. Meier will not do it, Chappuie wont do it, they are both proven to be unable to stand up make changes from their past performances Meier with USD 446 and Chappuie as a failed past city commissioner that was voted out of office. Stichman and Caflisch both have what it takes to listen to what the residents are saying and desire, and I believe will bend over backwards to get our city government back on the track to success.

Keep a watchful eye on those that are currently in office, watch them closely, they no doubt see the writing on the wall and are desperate to do whatever it takes to throw up as many roadblocks for the incoming commissioners. Underhanded and secret deals are their specialty. When the new commission is seated, Chubb is another one that needs to go.

I see that Kelly has created another of her powerpoint type creations to show everybody all of the brillint accomplishments her Dave, Micky, and Barb have done on the City website. Funny they spend hours bragging on their accomplishments but never have any time or desire to answer questions from the public in a Commission meeting, They only want us to see their take on Independence, and never want to answer our questions publically. We need to get out in force to elect leaders that will change this practice of non-transparancy in our City government.

The only time that bunch gets their a**es in gears is when they're called on something. Topix and that Miller woman get on them about making a plan to get things done and they throw together something that's no where near a plan. Topix and that Miller woman get on them about road resurfacing and they start making plans for resurfacing the streets and telling people to call them. Micky's the boss and he's getting paid for doing nothing.Maybe that Miller woman should be made city manager and the Topix posters be her advisors. They brag about not raising the mill levy but forget to metion they raised our sales taxes. They also don't brag about not answering our questions and spending our money like a bunch of drunks.When will they wake up and smell the coffee?We know who they are, what they're all about, and how they're always behind even though we're paying them to stay ahead.Putting all that crap on their website only makes it worse.We need to elect men that will have all the powers'noses reamed so they can smell the coffee.

They brag about

Got an idea.Miller writes an article saying Webb and Kelly need to go.Webb and Kelly read the article and quit since they're used to doing what she says after she says it.They're gone and everyones happy.

There was ad in the paper telling people to register to vote.Since Micky and friends copy everything someone says in the paper why haven't they put something on their website telling everyone to register to vote or telling them they could register at city hall(or will they do that after they read this)?

Due to the smear campaign against Ned, the ststus quo are crapping themselves in fear of losing control of their jobs, that enough tells me that Ned and Leonhard are the right choice.

If you want the head of the snake cut off or change at the top, Ned and Leonhard are the two most likely to do it.
