All this to keep Kathy Nickolaus in her job? Are we Mad?

What in gods name are we doing? All this from a Republican Party that whines incessantly about not being able to fire people...











As just another example of a freeloading elected Republican official, Nickolaus continues to complicate what other clerks have found to be a workable system. But check this out:
Republican Freeloader won't leave!
Waukesha Patch: Waukesha Deputy Clerk/Treasurer Gina Kozlik, who runs the elections for the city, brought up several issues with the procedure changes.

“Do I have concerns? Yes, I have a lot of concerns,” she said Tuesday. “Mainly, there is going to be a lot of municipal clerks that are signed onto the system. … We’ve experienced slowness in system. I am just concerned that it works.”

Testing the system, possible system failures, tabulating the vote counts, scheduling staff to have fresh eyes looking at the numbers and maintaining the integrity of all election materials in case of a recount are among Kozlik’s concerns.

In addition to uploading results directly to the state system, the municipal clerks are being asked to submit an election night report with vote counts to Waukesha County. The ballot tapes are also to be delivered to the Waukesha County Courthouse by 4 p.m. the day after the election.
