It’s that time of my two week cycle again for me to write my column
as the last thing I do before I send the paper off to the press. And as I
sit here thinking about what to write about, I am trying my hardest
not to write about our Child-King — I mean President — Donald
Trump. Trump is like that spoiled little child who keeps rolling the
pencil off the desk to get attention or throws their food around the
room to get a reaction from the startled adults in the room.

But before I go there, I do want to give kudos to Maribeth Witzel-
Behl, Madison’s city clerk, and her staff. While I may be biased in
that her office has taken out some full-page ads in The Capital City
Hues encouraging people to vote and giving them as many avenues
as possible to do so, I am thrilled by their efforts to make our
Democracy work. They aren’t waiting for people to come to the City
County Building. They are taking their efforts out into the community
to help make this voting cycle as safe as possible, especially since
COVID-19 appears to be raising its ugly head once again.

Democracy in the Park was an incredible idea to make registering to
vote and absentee voting a community event. It’s like the old adage,
“If Muhammad can’t go to the mountain, then bring the mountain to
Muhammad.” It’s my understanding, notwithstanding the last minute
threats of the two self-appointed governors in the legislature, Voz
and Fitzgerald, to sue to prevent Democracy in the Park from
happening, that over 10,000 absentee ballots were handed in to
certified poll workers. I think that represents about one in 15 voters
registered in the city of Madison in 2018. How cool is that?
