Actually help Bamesberger win

Shaming isn’t my favorite; it often backfires. But it’s justified now.

Countless locals have complained to me that Mick Ireland might get elected county assessor. A position without term limits that can be abused easily to wreak retribution on political opponents.

Yet how many of the complainers have donated to the campaign of his opponent, Deb Bamesberger? How many have offered to donate time to her campaign?

If you haven’t helped elect Deb and Mick wins, don’t gripe to those who did help.
