Three Complaints Filed Against Chief Koval

Posted September 13th, 2016 @ 11:41 AM by

So, the initial hearings (i.e. boring!) for the three cases filed against Madison Police Chief Michael (Mike) Koval were yesterday. I took video, they are brief. I wanted people to see what it takes to file a PFC complaint, since its such a mysterious process. I don’t have a copy of the first complaint, but I will get one, here is the Sharon Irwin and Shadayra Kilfoy-Flores one.

County Week Ahead

Posted September 12th, 2016 @ 8:19 AM by

Are meetings at 8:30, 9am, 10am, noon, 2:30, 3:45 meetings they really want the public to show up to, or are the meetings where they hope we don’t show up? 15 meetings, 6 start at 5:00 or later. It gets worse and worse as the months go by . . . how do county board supervisors with full time jobs attend these meetings?

City Week Ahead

Posted September 12th, 2016 @ 7:36 AM by

6 of the 17 meetings start after 5:00. Many of the meetings start at 8am, 10am, 11am, 3pm, 3:30pm. How is the public supposed to be able to attend or participate in these meetings? I know I’ll be at work during these meetings, and I bet you will be too. Alot of meetings with no links too . . . 🙁
