Louise Heydorn is a good and capable council person. Widowfield needs to get a real job.

Mr. Widowfield's forfeited his credibility by using the tactics he used prior to last November's election. I think that
Mr. Widowfield should leave public life and get a job. Reading that he was making this move so he could spend quality time with his family made me chuckle. That line of reasoning is cited so often by people in public life as a reason for changing course that it has become a joke - the stock reason to trot out when the truth is to be kept under wraps.

Louise survived an Alex-lead attempt to knock her out in a primary and will do it again. God Bless her. She has served on County Council honorably since '92. She was an independent Republican - that is independent of Alex's control way before it became fashionable. Louise may not have the $ like John will from Alex but just as in the Cuy. Falls Clerk race, widowfield needs more than Alex's money to win. He needs a backbone.

Sigh...give it up for a while, will you, John?

In the 9 September 2007 issue of the Beacon Journal, reporting about your run for Clerk of Courts, it was reported that "Widowfield said he has enjoyed his years in the General Assembly, but he would rather be in charge responsible for administering an office than trying to persuade a majority of legislators to support his ideas."

In the 5 January 2008 issue of the Beacon Journal reporting about your run for County Council, it was reported that "State representative says family dictated his decision to seek county position."

In the 31 January 2008 issue of the Beacon Journal reporting about projected budget deficits and the layoff of state workers...

...Hey, John? You been around the Statehouse at all to work on any State Budgets recently?

Hey, Alex...you a card-carrying member of the ACLU yet?

I hope justice is given to the people and he pays for his wrong doings. When elected into public office you are to be there for the people not for yourself. You are a public servent. Politicians are not all that. so many think that they are above the law. Its time to crack down on these free loaders
