On April 5, 2016 Richfield residents will have to decide how to vote on two referendums that were brought forth by Danah Zoulek. These referendums are supported by Jeff Gonyo since he circulated and signed many of the papers needed to get this request bought forward. The questions residents will have to consider and vote on, at the April 5th, 2016 Spring Village of Richfield election, were made public at the January 28th village board meeting.
Two (2) referendum questions will be included on the Village of Richfield's April 5th, 2016 election ballot. These referendum questions were submitted by Ms. Danah Zoulek via procedures in Wisconsin State Statutes to amend the Village's Charter Ordinances.
Included in your attachments are the referendum questions. The referendum questions have been drafted by the Village Attorney and were submitted to the Washington County Clerk before Tuesday, January 26th, 2016. State statute requires the filing no later than January 27th, 2016.
Question 1: Shall the petitioned Charter Ordinance be adopted which would expand the size of the Village Board from five (5) members to seven (7) members and freeze the total Village Board compensation to exactly the compensation cost of the previous five (5) person Village Board?
Question 2: Shall the petitioned Charter Ordinance be adopted which would state that no person shall be elected to the Office of Village Trustee or Village President for more than three (3) terms two (2) years each] and serve no more than six (6) years for these respective positions?
Now it is up to Richfield residents to decide if they want their vote to support Jeff Gonyo and Danah Zoulek or continue what was decided in 2007.
WHAT IS NEXT FOR RICHFIELD? Can a failed 2015 Village of Richfield Trustee candidate and an anti-Richfield non resident continue to influence governance in Richfield?
What will be the outcome of these referendums?
ONLY YOU CAN DECIDE WITH YOUR VOTE!
