Button, Button. Who Pushed the Buttons?

 It gave me great pleasure and pride this morning to be the first in Berkeley County to push the  buttons (touch-screen) and vote early in the West Virginia Primary Election.

 Mountain State  voters may vote early in the Primary election at their local county voter registration offices from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM on April 25, 26, 27, 28, 30 and May 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.

 Otherwise,  regular election polling places will be open  on Tuesday, May 8th, from 6:30 AM until 7:30PM.

 Voting is one of  our supernal rights and responsibitiles.

 Please also pass this message along to others.

 Well, what are you waiting for?

More on Proposed Fee Increase

                                  (Click on the photo to enlarge)

  The above is a Martinsburg Journal newspaper photo of me studying the policy proposal at the Berkeley County Council public hearing last night on fire fees (see "Fee Increase Proposed" entry below at this website). My "friends" added the balloon caption above me. (I think they were at work when they did this. I wonder who's their supervisor?)

Postscript: The suggestion by Mike Folk to continue to exempt agricultural  (farm) buildings from fire fees was endorsed by the Berkeley County Fire Board and adopted by the Berkeley County Council.
