Some friends of mine are rejoicing over this morning’s news that Kathy Nickolaus will not seek re-election in the fall. She’s done after December 31, 2012. But Nickolaus will still “assist” in the recalls in May and June, she’ll be around for the 2012 presidential election, and she won’t ever have to face Democratic challenger, Jessie Read.
To sum up, Wisconsin voters lose the chance for Kathy Nickolaus to finally, FINALLY be held accountable to the people she serves, the Waukesha GOP won’t have to defend Nickolaus and its lack of action regarding her “errors,” and the sanctity of our spring and fall elections is still in jeopardy.
So I’m not breaking out the bubbly. Not by a long shot. And I’m going to laminate my “Resign, Kathy!” protests signs, because I may have to use them again next month (stranger things have happened).
Kathy Nickolaus should have stepped down in April. Of 2011.
