Good job Bishop Murry!

Going South on Tippecanoe, between Shields & Lockwood, it is 35mph & there is a steep hill. Your car naturally picks up speed down the hill unless you brake and the cops wait at the bottom of the hill. It's not necessarily a speed trap since the limit does not change - but I see drivers pulled over constantly!

Date is wrong - should say June 2nd. It doesn't look like a tornado, just a storm.

The Democratic committeemen that supported Decenzo & Aey need to stay involved, whether Betras try’s to banish them from the Party or not. They need to stay involved with what Betras is doing and hold him accountable, not just during the elections. Hopefully Betras will keep his word when he said he changed his mind about not letting non-Betras supporters stay involved with the Party - we do need to unite!

It's a known fact Betras co-wrote the letter with Holly- but Betram would NEVER mention that. I think it’s distasteful that Betras would take advantage of a family's dysfunction for his own personal success (which we all have some kind of family dysfunction).
The fact is Betras & his best friend Marc Dann embarrassed the Democratic Party & now Betras is the Chairman of the same Party he embarrassed! They released recent Dann's transcripts just last week where he states he is still great friends with Betras but explains in detail how Betras was directly involved in the fraud! If you read these you will be appalled that we have Betras as our Chairman!
I urge all committeemen to meet Georgiann DeCenzo before Wed's meeting (don't take my word or the Vindy's word, decide for yourself), you will be highly impressed with her energy and detailed plan for the Party! I’m sure the official transcripts will be floating around the meeting tomorrow – please take a look before you vote!
If you had to pick one, would you rather have Marc Dann as your supporter or Mark Hanni?

Todd,I agree that this is a newsworthy article. You should have included the signs these people put in their yard - I find them the most interesting (and controversial) part of this situation. When I saw the signs with the drivers full name on one, I told multiple people (which then lead to them driving to see them too).

Read my post above - what does everyone think about the signs in their yard? Especially including the name of the driver?

" Betras acknowledged he sent a text message to DeCenzo after she announced her candidacy that “elections have consequences.” "
Betras can say what we wants about this text, but we all know what he meant. Betras is scared and is using cowardly threats against Decenzo. Boy, do we have a high class Chairman representing us.

"the tainted history of local Democratic politicians is still a millstone around the Valley’s neck"
Just to drive the point home, again, this is because of the Betras/Dann scandal!

"The era of the dysfunctional, unproductive party is over"
How can the man that was directly involved in creating the dysfunction be praised for ending it?? Betras was directly involved in the Marc Dann fiasco! They released recent Dann's transcripts just last week where he states he is still great friends with Betras but explains in detail how Betras was directly involved in the fraud! If you read these you will be appalled that we have Betras as our Chariman!
I urge all committeemen to meet Georgiann Decenzo before tomorrow's meeting (don't take my word or the Vindy's word, decide for yourself), you will be highly impressed with her energy and detailed plan for the Party! I’m sure the official transcripts will be floating around the meeting tomorrow – please take a look before you vote!
