  6. Congrats to you on your voting record. The voter turnout was 39% which was about 10% higher than past Municipal Elections. https://clearfieldco.org/election-results/ https://clearfieldco.org/results-archive/
  7. Shaw lost because the voters did not want him anymore. Shaw always has had a Republican straight ticket voter disadvantage in past elections. This election even Democrats abandoned the straight ticket and voted for Ryan Sayers.
  8. Democrats opposed the elimination of straight-ticket voting 10/29/19 Legislation that would abolish straight-ticket voting was amended Tuesday to add reforms long sought by critics of Pennsylvania’s election laws. But the changes — including no-excuse absentee voting and extended deadlines to submit ballots — was not enough to appeal to most Democrats on the House State Government Committee, which approved the amendments with a 17-8 vote that was pretty much on party lines, with just two Democrats voting in favor of them. The other eight cited the straight-ticket voting elimination (the bill’s sole, original purpose) as the reason for their opposition. It also was the reason Gov. Tom Wolf vetoed similar legislation last summer. But Wolf’s spokesman said Wednesday the governor now views the amended bill as a compromise that would get badly needed changes enacted. 10/30/19 LEGISLATORS IN Pennsylvania’s state legislature passed a voting reform bill Tuesday that would, among other measures, eliminate “straight-ticket” voting in the state — whereby voters can fill in a single bubble to vote for a party’s entire slate. Gov. Tom Wolf is expected to sign the bill, and its provisions would go into effect immediately, in time for the 2020 election. This represents a reversal for Wolf, who over the summer walked back a measure eliminating straight-ticket voting under pressure from both Democrats in the party and progressive organizations who support it. Democrats and progressives say the straight-ticket option is a boon for the party because it tends to increase the number of votes for down-ballot candidates, and Democrats in Pennsylvania’s state House had previously conducted internal analysis that showed that eliminating the straight-ticket option would have an overall negative impact for the party.
  9. Use of the Council-Manager Form of Government The council-manager form of government was created to fight corruption and unethical behavior by fostering professionalism, transparency, responsiveness, and accountability. To the greatest extent possible, council-manager cities and counties separate the political nature of law and policy making with the apolitical nature of implementation. This form of government is used in cities and counties large and small. Most small cities use the council-manager form of government. Some large cities have retained a strong mayor form of government to effectively deal with immense political pressures that come with a large population. While this form of government was created in the US, its use has spread to other countries. Local governments in Canada, Australia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom have adopted the council-manager system. Manager Under the council-manager form of government the city manager functions as the chief executive of the government organization. Like a private sector, CEO does for a company, the city manager oversees the day-to-day operations of the city and serves as the chief advisor to the city council. Mayor In most situations, the mayor is a voting member of the city council who has no more authority than any other council member. The mayor presides over council meetings and performs ceremonial duties as outlined in the city charter. Effective mayors exert more influence than their official authority gives them. https://www.thebalancecareers.com/council-manager-form-of-government-1669446

  13. For the first time in 30 years, participation in high school sports declined, according to a study by the National Federation of State High School Associations. In the 2018-19 school year, there was a decline of 43,395 from the year prior, according to the NFHS’s annual High School Athletics Participation Survey. The last time the report found a decline was in 1988-89. The sports with the largest declines were two of the most popular ones: 11-player football and basketball. Boys 11-player football touched its lowest mark since the 1999-2000 school year. The study found that 1,006,013 boys participated in it, which was almost 31,000 fewer than 2017-18. The study found participation in boys 11-player football dropped in 44 of the 51 states counted, which includes the District of Columbia. However, boys six-, eight- and nine-player football teams expanded. There were 156 more schools that offered these forms of the sport, and about 1,600 more participants overall. Additionally, girls 11-player football has doubled over the past 10 years. “The survey certainly confirms that schools are not dropping the sport of football, which is great news,” NFHS executive director Karissa Niehoff said in a statement. “Certainly, we are concerned about the reduction in the number of boys involved in the 11-player game but are thrilled that states are finding other options by starting 6-player or 8-player football in situations where the numbers have declined.” https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/highschool/2019/08/26/high-school-sports-participation-declined-first-time-30-years/2126836001/
