The webmaster is Vicki Oakes and she is a city employee. You should note that less than 1/2 of the candidates have participated. I suspect the others may be aware of this problem.

Here is the penalty as provided by MN Stat 211B.17.
[size=9]
211B.17 FORFEITURE OF NOMINATION OR OFFICE; CIRCUMSTANCES WHERE NOT FORFEITED.

[size=9]Subdivision 1.Forfeiture of nomination or office.




Except as provided in subdivision 2, if a candidate is found guilty of violating this chapter or an offense was committed by another individual with the knowledge, consent, or connivance of the candidate, the court, after entering the adjudication of guilty, shall enter a supplemental judgment declaring that the candidate has forfeited the nomination or office. If the court enters the supplemental judgment, it shall transmit to the filing officer a transcript of the supplemental judgment, the nomination or office becomes vacant, and the vacancy must be filled as provided by law.

PostSubject: Why?   Tue Oct 20, 2009 7:43 am

Perhaps we have all missed the real issues involved, including myself. The real purpose of the city website being used as a political platform is to control the press.

The ortonville Dependent is paid large sums of money as the Official newspaper. The newspaper is controlled by a few and the radio station is also the official radio station.

Obviously the webmaster and her husband have promoted politically an elimination of the police department. The use of EDA money used like a gambler at a casino and have promoted arbitrary decision-making.

Perhaps the real reason the city website is being abused is the same people want to control the press. Sound familiar. The Forums are the only site that is not controlled by the city.

The Forums only interest is to promote good government.

By the way, I am in the process of checking other city websites for links and political activity on the web site.

I think when I complete my survey the results will interests you all.
