For a guy who wants to a run city, you'd think he'd at least know the laws about campaign signs!!!!

Do we really want a mayor who doesn't even know the laws about his own campaign sign placement and size?

Wisconsin law about this:

Political and campaign signs

Any signs along roadways, including political/campaign signs, pose potential hazards. Improperly placed signs can:

Obstruct a motoristís view
Distract a driverís attention
Compound damages or injuries in the event of a crash
Endanger the safety of individuals who are erecting signs along busy highways
Present obstacles to crews who maintain (mow) roadways
Political/campaign signs, especially larger billboard-type signs, are particularly dangerous when placed in vision areas at intersections.

Signs prohibited on state highway right of way
Wisconsin law prohibits the placement of signs on any rural or urban portion of the state highway system right of way. This prohibition applies to commercial advertising and covers political signs, posters and banners. As a general rule, highway right of way in rural areas extends to beyond both shoulders and ditches and any adjoining fence line.

Wisconsin Administrative Code Trans 201.16 details the conditions under which political/campaign signs may be placed adjacent to the state highway system (state, federal and interstate highways)

Local municipalities may have additional guidelines regulating the placement of political signs along county highways or local roads and streets.

Signs on private property
Political signs are allowed on private property along the state highway system without a billboard permit as long as the signs:

Do not exceed 32 square feet in size
Contain no flashing lights or moving parts
Are put up less than 45 days before the election*
Are removed within one week after the election*

PLUS the big painted signs (which look real professional, Willbilly) do NOT say "Paid for by so-and-so", which makes them ILLEGAL.

Maybe Michele and Jerry will call for another investigation. WAIT, they support Gary and have positions lined up in his administration. GOD HELP RIPON. Please don't vote for this nightmare.

Someone should ask Gary how he plans to work on economic development when the very company he works for MOVED from Ripon to Green Lake....hmmm, Gary, explain that one to us? Michele, investigate please..

AND if I hear one more time "I was born in the Holy Land" I will puke. Who gives a crap about somebody being born east of Fond du Lac? Who is writing this guy's campaign literature - Pat Robertson?

Good old fashioned common sense says conservatives favor law and order. With, apparently, one exception.

GARY WILL? Common sense? Law and order? Are you serious? His top advisor has a long list of drunk driving arrests and a disorderly conduct. And his other advisor had a WHOLE editorial written about her, telling her to shut up and do something productive with her life. HIS SIGNS ARE ILLEGAL, he has no platform and no ideas, and he is running on ONE ISSUE - Sandmar subdivision.

This is your future, Ripon....having a mayor whose own company took jobs FROM Ripon and who believe a college degree is a bad thing. At this rate, we will look worse than Berlin in a few years.

I truly disbelieve in any thing that Gary Will stands for. I know from personal experience that he is in this for himself. That is how he has been his whole life. He is uneducated, which means he has no high school dipolma. Please think about this before you vote today. Say no to Gary Will.

Perhaps we should question why a certain white vehicle with Will For Mayor messages was parked ALL DAY on Blackburn Street very close to city hall (polling place) on election day and how the same vehicle was parked in front of the ex-mayor's home ALL DAY today!!!

I hope your city is beware of him. I have had bad experiences with him and so has many others. That is why in is campaign he said he left the past and moved to Ripon and is not looking back. Does he ever mention his family? Does anyone know that he has a family that he has like abonded and why? Yesterday on the radio, he was asked how he handles people that might not like what he does as mayor and how would he handle it. Well he gave everyone a line. He is great at holding grudes. He has been a great person for swindling people. You could say he has the making of a saleman.

I could tell you all the nasty stories about him, but I will not step to his level. Do an indepth report on him and you will learn some of the details, but not all the personal stuff. One thing you can see in fond du lac court records is a disorderly ticket with an retired elderly lady.

The answer to that question is quite simple: because I parked it there.

That's interesting....since you have THREE drunk driving arrests and a disorderly conduct arrest. What a GREAT campaign advisor.

The fact that Gary Will is apparently proud to associate himself with someone like Jerry Davidson should have told us all exactly what we needed to know: they are both liars.

Remember: every single person on the city council voted to work with Boca. Will can't do squat. He'll just look like a fool at meetings.

Will didn't have a platform. He campaigned on nothing. Well, actually, he campaigned on being uneducated and something about the holy land and God and blah, blah. Oh, and he likes snowmobiles. Good for him. Of course, that's only 10% of the population of Ripon (not sure what percentage of voting age.)

Maybe after the disaster that is sure to be Will's one term, voters will remember to go to the polls next time.

My first question for the new mayor - You attended Catholic schools...DID you graduate from them?

I heard the sirens go off today at noon - Is that the new sign that Gary Will has an original idea or that it is drinking time for old Jerry?

By the way, Mayor Will, what businesses want to leave Ripon? You said so in the paper this week, so which ones? Shouldn't we be trying to keep them here, unlike Culligan, which left Ripon and moved to Green Lake? Where is your master plan to save these businesses and create jobs? Surely, Michele, Jerry and the gang have written something for you. It has to be more than re-writing the sign ordinance and parking your campaign truck in front of ex-mayor's houses and by the polling places. Ripon turns its scared eyes to you.....

I don't know who flower child is, but you have not known Gary very long or personally to make a statement like that to me. Gary nevered mentioned or thanked his parents etc. for anything or even mentioned them. Why don't you talk to him family and see what they have to say. I know the family very well and he has mistreated everyone if not even ripped them off.

Can you be more specific? The comment from Flower child is out of line. I thought this thread was cleaning up its act a little, guess not. Comments like that just leave a bad taste. Can"t you think of a more creative way to express yourself? If not, you are the moron.

Drinking?- Don't we have to do that in order to survive? We need to drink fluids or we would die of dehydration. Wow previous poster, how do you survive if it takes a "Saturday only test at noon of the siren" to make you think of drinking something? My recent check shows that alcohol is not illegal for someone over the age of 21 in the entire United States, not just Ripon. Jerry, aren't you over 21 or is the previous poster quoted above trying to make everyone believe that you can never drink alcohol "EVER"?
Who is the recently elected Mayor of Ripon?- The records show Gary Will as the recently elected Mayor of Ripon not Jerry (whom you keep bashing previous poster). When a final decision is made by any Mayor in our wonderful country, isn't it the Mayor that makes the final decision at the time he/she signs for something to be put into action or in this case, "Will Jerry be taking Gary Will's hand and actually making Gary Will's signature on the documents he will be signing?"..."Will Jerry be operating a medical device that moves Gary Will's mouth and vocal cords when he is speaking his views?" Wow previous poster, it sounds like Jerry (whom I never met, talked to, seen and just so you know, I am not even located close to your town) deserves more credit than what you are giving him if he has all of these abilities.
*****
Schools?- Catholic, public, private, parochial, Jewish, Protestant, Lutheran, college, university or whatever type of school you want to refer to, does it matter if and how long someone actually attended school and what type of school they attended in order to be a human being with common sense and intelligence? FYI previous poster: Bill Gates (Microsoft) and Steve Jobs (Apple/Mac) never completed or obtained a college degree but they are two of the more recent common sense and intelligent people that have run HUGE organizations SUCCESSFULLY and made lots of $$$$$ and helped many many charities over the years.... Howard Stern has a college degree but Tiger Woods does not. Which of these two people is more publicly appealing and liked in this situation right now with the higher viewer ratings for the recent Masters? I am not a supporter of any of these people, I have no interest in their businesses, media content, sport, public or private lives. Think of this previous poster, Jay Leno was told by his "Guidance Counselor" to drop out of high school and stay away from college. Guess what, this motivated him and he graduated from high school and from college. What do you think his guidance counselor was thinking when Jay Leno became famous and very successful, did the guidance counselor with a college degree have the right answer for Jay Leno? Go figure that out with your type of thought processes.
