I saw a local newspaper in another county last week. It had a listing of financial statements for all of their local candidates. It was very informative. Would someone please prepare a report listing all of the county candidates and their financial information. It would be good to see how much money they spent, where the money came from and how they spent it. This should include the PAC that seemed to have spent a good bit of money promoting open and transparent government. Thanks to anyone that can take on this project.

Lack of time ---- PACS are listed on the internet --- The local candidates statements are found @ the County Clerk's Office (If the candiastes have turned them in) -----

Is someone questioning the legalities? Or just curious?

I hope we have had enough *under the radar" issues and does not continue.

Yes it would be informative to see financial statements for candidates and PAC. And certainly our Doddridge Co. Republican Exec. Committee. ha!
And regarding the comments about the "PAC that seemed to have spent a good bit of momey promoting open and transparent government" ...yes they have and sure seems like a common sense thing to do.

And, having checked things out myself, I can tell ya... they got some smart people running it and they are darn conscious of crossing all 't's" and dotting all "i's" to make sure they do EVERYTHING by the book and in complete compliance with the Office of the Secretary of State which regulates political parties and PACs, as well as they confer all the time with authorities to make sure they are doing things in accordance with WV code.

So... since you are soliciting someone to take on the project of looking into the candidates and any PACs we have, I'd recommend that the best place to start to expend such effort would be with the Doddridge Repub. exec. committee and make sure their campaign finance reports over the past few years match whatever was reported by political candidates in the county as far as donations.

Hard to believe that the rep. exec. committee's campaign finance reports all those years don't show any donations at all to our Doddridge Candidates over the years. But then Jack's group hadn't filed those reports for many years until someone called it to the attention of the SOS office. And then they had to scramble to pull them together for all those back years. And transparency? When do they meet and how do they advertise it as the WV code requires? PACS don't have to... but a political executive committee of a political party DOES have to.

Maybe whoever takes on your suggested project will know just where to start with the examination.

I am not nibbing this is public information. I leave for work at 6:30 am and return home at 5:30 if I am lucky. So, it is a little difficult for me to go to the courthouse. I was only suggesting this as a news article for the Herald Record or the Doddridge News Website. It seems as though someone gets a little upset when other people want to know something. I really did not expect this to be big deal but now I am wondering if someone does in fact have something to hide.

You may need to have someone look-up the info for you while you are at work. Sometimes it takes a little effort to get the info we want. We've surely gotten used to "instant gratification", haven't we and I don't claim to be an exception.

I undersand that the courthouse is now open outside of the normal hours. Like maybe an evening or two a week and/or a Saturday every month? Can someone confirm that? And is it for county citizens to have access or done as a special arrangement for the oil and gas subcontractors that are in there all the time? Don't know the details, just know that I was told the courthouse does have some extended hours.

Seems to me that an independent news reporter would be willing to do a story on this subject. It is time the sun shines on everybody.

I got a answer on why we dont have a reporter doing these reports in west union, they have family who work at local stations and if they step in on some subjects it may cause family trouble and a back lash of some kind could hurt their lives ?? some of these news ststions members live in town and have family in local city goverment and are married to teachers and others so they dont want to stir up any hard feelings unless its a drug bust or a murder ..

Why do you keep asking for information that is already available at the court house?

What is the real truth?????? The REAL TRUTH to what????

That you believe that there is some kind of conspiracy by the news organizations to hide campaign finance reports???? You can go and review them yourself buddy and see what you find----

I can almost bet that you will probably see a bunch that were never turned in!!!!

But the real point is even if there is anything wrong found who will do anything about it?????

what has been done in the past --- NOTHING!!!!(There is one unnamed politicial that didn't even bother to turn her report in within th deadlines and the last that I knew she still hadn't turned them in --- nothing was done ----)

So what do you expect that will be found ----

Ding,Ding Ding--Why are you so upset about a suggestion for a news story. I thought credible news media liked suggestions. I did not think it was such a big deal but now I really am curious. I don't think I said anything offensive, so what is your problem?

Not upset about the idea -- Upset that it is always someone that has to do it ---

and the fact that we went from a simple request to a conspiracy to deny people the news ----

Call the Cburg paper --- maybe they would send someone down ---
