    Radio Head

    I got the literature today on Charlie lets go over what was you said and implied about the mailing

    I will never hire my wife at the taxpayer's expense
    I will eliminate NEPOTISM from the Highway Department
    Notice he doesnt mention his daughter, in laws, extended family or family period. Just not his wife.

    Radio I think the word "nepotism" covers family members

    Due to poor cash management the union employees had their health care canceled on March 1,2017.

    Well that was the current HWY commish responsibility letters not being addressed properly with full addresses on mailing and being "returned to sender" several times is probably closer to the facts why they were late and suspended

    The mail wasn't picked up in a timely manner from the HWY Dept mail box sat in the office mail box many days another reason they probably were late

    If you have worked in the office 4 years you know when bills are due- if there was issues with the front office messing with Hyw mail --which I don't believe happened BTW-- you would know that the insurance payments are due on ??? and follow up on where they are if you donít get them to pay
    I would make calls to the insurance co and start asking questions ďwhere the billĒ should be the first question

    I understand that Mel was not in the office a lot the last several weeks not sure why

    I called there about a week ago and she answered the phone from her home and said she had the phones at the office forwarded to her home

    The fact remained that she wasn't there a lot of the time-- so that could be more of an answer why the bills were not being paid in a timely manner also

    A spread sheet being turned in instead of invoices Ė the Treasurer needs invoices to pay bills not a list on a spread sheet with amounts to be paid
    I was at the meeting when the HWY Dept turned in a spread sheet instead of invoices to be paid and Charlie voted no because they were not turned in properly so yes he does vote no on fiscal matters


    I promise I will be fiscally responsible for the taxpayers
    How fiscally responsible has Charlie Luehmann been when refusing to audit the General Assistance Fund

    Just in case you didnít get the post I put it on GCG the general assistance fund was audited by CJSchlosser and co no fraud or issues found

    I donít think elected officials should have benefits and Charlie will not take benefits either but the statement you made about office workers receiving health care benefits is allowed

    I believe Tammy and Lauri are full time office workers and Mel donít receive benefits she is part time

    I would not deny them benefits but I have spoken up at meetings many times that elected officials should not get benefits

    And since he likes dredging up troubles from twenty years ago we have this:

    Case Title
    ASSOCIATES FINANCE vs. LUEHMANN CHARLES
    Defendant LUEHMANN CHARLES
    02/16/1996
    Motion to Appoint Special Process Server FILED BY
    Atty CROWDER AND TALIANA
    02/20/1996
    SUMMONS FOR LM CASE ISSUED AND SENT TO PLTF. ATTY. ISSUED
    Defendant LUEHMANN CHARLES Defendant LUEHMANN LAURA
    LM DOCKET Mar 25,1996 01:30PM Judge EAST ALTON JUDGE

    Being brought to suit by someone named
    ASSOCIATES FINANCE
    Oh and this counts even though its more than twenty years old, just like the trash Charlie dug up on his opponent from over twenty years back.

    ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR AND POLITICS, RIGHT?

    that sounds kind of "financial" to me. What could this be?
    Probably an award for being so fiscally responsible.

    Ok I am uncomfortable with this one so I will not say much on details

    Charlies court case is no comparison to Domestic violence and these both were over twenty years ago too you decide which is the worst issue

    Is all fair in love,war and politics Ė all I can say is these two issues donít even compare to be honest with you

    LOTS OF FINGER POINTING, LOT OF ACCUSATIONS AGAINST HIS OPPONENT BUT NOT ONE SYLLABLE ABOUT HIS QUALIFICATIONS, EXPERIENCE AND ABILITIES

    OK lets talk about this one too Don may drive heavy equipment and dump gravel haul pavement and know some about road construction but his leadership skills are lacking on how to deal with employees

    Tammy mowing grass at the lift station with a 20 inch mower when grass was 12-18 inches high and a tractor and brush hog was the proper way to do it where is his skills and leadership forcing her to do that job knowing it would be better with a tractor BTW wasting tax payers money also and would have ruined several lawn mowers that year with a 20 in mower more waste of tax dollars

    If Tammy wasnít doing a good job thatís one thing write her up and do it right

    BTW lets not forget the ladies room issues not letting her use the ladies room in the office area but wrote her up for doing so

    Hey I understand there was a unisex bathroom in the HWY Dept that mostly men use but to pick an issue like to write her up is not showing leadership skills

    In todays PC climate that was very foolish he should have been focused on her work instead of her bathroom habits

    Look at the mess with the bills not being paid promptly on his watch

    Charlie may have never drove a dump truck and donít need to either if he has a good formeman he that can trust do the job

    Charlie may not be perfect but he advanced in his police work and retired as chief that says a lot in my opinion

    Charlie has the abilty to manage money and budgets that was part of his job as police chief
    Charlies I believe has management, supervisor skills and overseeing employees something Don seems to lack just by his actions with Tammy and the latest issue with Ron for not having a sign supporting him in his front yard

    Charlie I believe will do a better job he will immediately save us $120,000.00 by eliminating an extra job that money could be used to pay for a generator and pave Courtney DR

    Ok I Radio I hope you donít get insulting if you respond to me I tried to be to the point and civil on my comments
