The Clark County Clerk's office is very well run.

 

Lots of serious responsibilities
are handled everyday with a huge volume
of various complicated services,  record keeping,
and activities being very successfully administrated

by the Clark County Clerk's office.

The overall 2015 Primary and General Elections went very well

throughout the several communities.

Always present, unforeseen election problems

which occur were successfully overcome
with Susan Popp's very good management skills.

 

Best BC "Blood Sport" Quote to date:

"The multiple, various recounts were exceptionally well handled,
especially with the contentious nature

of the manipulative/highly determined
political gladiators/camp followers

that were involved."

Hint:
The aging 20 year old voting machines should probably be more extensively discussed.....
Long overdue technology updates may be in order if the really financially distressed

county government can find the funding.

 

Ms. Popp's dedication and her determination to keep paper ballots as backups for recounts
is a very wise decision for which she is to be additionally complimented.
Remember,
that the Republican Party won the most difficult
and contentiously recounted race of the several recounts.

 

 

Legal Department

The noted and highly competent barristers David Mosley, Larry Wilder,
Dawn Elston, and Dustin White, et all,
kept a watchful eye and did some fine, contentious lawyering
and Prime Time DUTIFUL STIRRING as well!

Congrats to the clerk

on the well run elections, Spring and Fall.

There are often local recounts all around the country.
The multiple elections and the various recounts in Clark County were successfully handled.

Best  Breakfast Club Quote of the Day

Final  Analysis:

"When there are initially only 18 votes
separating three of six contenders
out of approximately 12,000 votes cast

in a multiple office at-large race
with three to be elected,

any results and subsequent recounts

would be highly watched,

contested,

and examined.
This election and the recount process

both worked very well."

 

:D :popcorn:

Hmmmm ..... probably would have worked much better if a certain person had stayed out of it!!!   No one will ever believe the "results" -- no matter who is declared the "winner" as long as this certain person is involved in any manner!

I must very respectfully disagree.
This is the most inept Clerk in a long time.
How can you say the election was a success with problems everywhere.
This was a small election with very low turnout. Lord help us next year with a national election.
The woman should be removed from office. I also find it very disturbing that Perkins was allowed to be involved!

Totally agree with Bopper.  This is an embarrassing to Clark County.  Perkins is the best thing to happen to the local GOP in a long time.  Keep up the good work !  As for talks about a new election, really??  Let those who want that to put their money where their mouth is.  Pay for it.  No taxpayer monies should pay for a couple of cry babies.  Put on your big boy pants and accept the results.

Nooper. Bog Bopper is wrong.

Susan Popp is an excellent office holder.

Susan is the future and administers a very good office.

Re-read what  'ol SR wrote.

The weak smear failed.

 

The lawyers and candidates picked bro JP

for the recount person, not the clerk.

 

 

Now,

as to PC, JP, TG, KV, DJ, EZ, et al,

they are yesterday's news.

Way gone.

 

The D's

could campaign

much better with competent assistance.

We know who can help them if he wants to do so.

 

Clark County Republican chair Jamey Noel

is assembling one of the biggest changes and turnarounds

in the history of any Indiana county.

 

Steve Webb won. 

He is part of a great family

and the great future of Jeffersonville and Clark County.

He will do very well.

This council can properly comprehend

it's correct role as the 'Legislative Branch'

and be supportive of the mayor.

The last one could not.....

:D

Where was Galligan in all of this?  I thought Wilder was a democrat who was loyal to TG?  I guess $ always prevails.  Also, how in the hell is an employee of the local GOP leader allowed to be a part of the process?  There is no way in hell Nick Mobley should of been allowed to be a part of the process when his boss is Jamey Noel.  You should of seen the look on his face every time Noel entered the building.  Then you throw Perkins in the mix.  

 

Shea how come you guys don't ever ask the tough questions?  For instance, "Mr. Mobley, how can you be fair and impartial when your boss is the local GOP leader and really wants Webb to win"  I'd love to hear him answer this.  

 

You really want this to be fair go out and get guys/gals that aren't from here and have them do it.  Also, I thought these voting machines are top of the line?

As far as Maples goes, what ever "King Noel" wants he gets, right or wrong. And in this case wrong.  And if he doesn't get his way lookout you will meet his Chicago handyman.

You can't have a trustworthy recount when the people doing the recount are not independent.

You can't have a trustworthy audit when the auditors are not independent.

You can't have a trustworthy facility study (think GCCS) when the firm doing the study is not independent.

How on earth do these people think anyone can trust the results under these circumstances?

 

 

I don't care if Webb or Rodriguez or Mickey Mouse "won" --- but the way it stands right now, there is NO valid, clear "winner".   Being a "great man" or "part of great family" does not make someone the winner.   A truly honorable man/woman would refuse to be sworn in until this fiasco was rectified. 

 

The whole thing is one big mess -- typical of Clark County.  But I must say that the Democrats really blew it when they allowed John Perkins to be involved at all. One of the pictures in the paper showed Rodriguez with Perkins in the background with his ex-wife who is on probation for felony theft!.   Sheesh, why would Galligan involve people like this if he expected to get people to have any faith in the results of the recount?

 

I want to know who is paying the attorneys.

Remember the person that Galligan used to work his Absentee Ballots.  I think his name was Marshall.  Where exactly did he end up?

Enough said.  :shifty:

I have spoken to both attorney's and court insiders that would beg to differ with you sir.

Ms. Haas never had this type of mess and I don't remember any others that did. 

Rose color glasses work well at times.

Double Nooper on the inaccurate criticism!

The office is well run and the problems were properly solved as they occurred.

It was good management and very responsive.

It is to be commended, not castigated!

The machines that could not read

some of the ballots that no one knew were printed

slightly differently created the real temporary headaches.

 

The recounts were all handled properly as directed by state statute.

The lawyers got paid, had a lot of fun a-stirrin' and  a-yellin' at each other, :D

and the process worked! (I also have spoken to the attorneys.

They, as did the clerk's office, did a very good job in their roles.)

:thumbsup:

 

 

The elections for all of the various municipalities in Clark  County

were very properly and successfully handled for both the primary elections

in the Spring and the General Elections in the Fall.

 

The operation of the office is very sound. The elections and the recounts were correct and thorough.

Castling biased politically or personally motivated aspersions is frowned upon! Bad form, sir!

 

There are tremendous amounts of additional work additionally performed correctly by the office every day.

 

Remember, in all elections everywhere, there are some voters that just cannot follow the rules

and subsequently mark their ballots strangely. The recount dealt with that.

Those were carefully scrutinized and debated properly.

 

The hard working county commissioners

and council persons need to property address

the troublesome funding problems

and find technological

upgrades for the machines.

 

The machines, the companies that sell, service and provide tech support for them,

and the printer companies were inherited by the new clerk.

 

Time to listen to what Ms. Popp has warned us about and obtain the necessary upgrades!

The ball is in the dedicated county commission's and council council's court.

 According to the paper and the commissioners, Ms. Popp got what she requested.

I'm in the process of requesting documents from the recount and writing a follow-up story on the at-large recount process, and I plan to interview all three commissioners. I will touch on Mobley's objectivity in my interview.

 

From what I remember hearing, the GOP gets one appointment (Wadsworth), Dems get one (Perkins), and the third must be a mechanic for voting machines (Mobley). That narrowed down the choices for the third person significantly, though I'm not sure how many other options there were.

SR, Bopper is right, Ms Popp did come to the Commissioners meeting to ask for new equipment. We approved roughly 130k for the equipment she needed. That amount is as I recall it from the meeting. Would have to check minutes to be exact.

The N&T reported in Tuesday's paper that "Larry Wilder said he is filing an appeal to exclude all 3,535 absentee votes from the recount totals."

 

Why would you attempt to disenfranchise 3,535 absentee voters?
