Awesome! I'm tired of all these old men that are set in their old ways and can't accept any real change or the career officials that take bribes. I think it's awesome that people at least have to open mind to vote for a 19 year old. I don't think to much needs to be said about this. Hopefully it's the start of something new. Wonder if this kid really knows what he's getting into though?
What do you guys think about this?
Now, I think it is about common sense. My 14 year old son has more common sense than a whole lot of adults that I know, and I would trust him 100% with something important than I would anyone of those college educated morons.

Please help elect Romaine Robert Quinn on Tuesday April 6th for Mayor of Rice Lake.
Sidewalks are important and necessary, but not everywhere. I support “NO” special assessments for new neighborhood sidewalks.
As budgets become harder to balance, all possibilities of potential savings must be explored. We spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on engineering, yet we never consider this area as a potential money saver. Now is the time to review our contract with Cooper Engineering and examine the possibility of bidding out these services.
During these trying economic times it can to have a new set of eyes reviewing the city’s finances. Now is the time for a new city administrator and to reevaluate the job title and job description.
I support the building of a new community center at the UW Barron County site once the resources are available. The city has explored many options and should take advantage of the offer that is on the table.
