  • PAID POLITICAL AD/Vote Julia Hodges District 2 Election Commissioner
    Wednesday, October 26, 2016 6:00 PM I believe people want to belong to a community that is active, that is safe and that is accountable. They want to know that their local government is attuned to their needs and concerns. A good and responsible election commissioner will run efficient precincts which in turn makes it easier for our constituents to vote quicker and easier, but more importantly, know that their vote counts effectively and honestly. It’s the basis of good government. And I believe that is but one, albeit small, reason why families move to Madison County. Read More

    Wednesday, October 19, 2016 6:00 PM In this passage Paul laments the plague of nominal Christianity.

    Wednesday, October 19, 2016 6:00 PM 
    Americans will soon get a chance to vote at the ballot box. But too little attention has been paid to their declining opportunities to vote with their feet.
