🌟Ringgold County Re-Opening Facilities July 6th🌟

With some limited exceptions, County departments will be available for in-person service during regular business hours, M-F 8am – 4pm, beginning July 6th. During this time, several steps will be taken in an attempt to reduce the possibility of spreading the virus.

✅Where it remains reasonable to do so, County Offices may continue attempts to schedule in-person contact by appointment. Appointments will be required for driver’s license (641-464-3230), passports and vital records (641-464-3231). People are encouraged to call ahead for court-related services (641-464-3234).

✅A drop box will remain available at the west entrance of the Courthouse and remote/electronic (phone, email, online, etc.) service delivery will continue to be encouraged by all county offices.

✅All Courthouse staff will make enhanced efforts related to cleaning and disinfecting.

✅Proper social distancing measures will be encouraged within the Courthouse.

✅Courthouse staff may screen visitors upon entry to any office. Personal protective equipment is not required, but encouraged.

The Ringgold County Board of Supervisors appreciates everyone’s flexibility and understanding throughout this epidemic. Diligence in preventing the spread of this virus is greatly appreciated.

There has been quite a bit of talk about the Primary Election relating to the parties. If you are currently a registered Democrat and want to vote for a Republican....you CAN switch parties and vote a Republican ballot....and vice versa, if you are a registered Republican and want to vote for a Democrat, you can switch parties and vote that ballot. This can actually be done anytime....during early voting here at the Courthouse or even on Election Day.

You cannot however, vote for both parties. When you select either the Democrat Party or the Republican Party, that is the ballot you get. All Democrat candidates are on one ballot and all Republican candidates are on a different ballot.

This is where the Primary Election differs from the General Election. In the General Election, all party candidates appear on the ballot. The Primary Election process requires voters to choose which party they want to support.

I hope this helps clear up some confusion. Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions.

05/27/2020

📝REMINDER: Precincts have consolidated from 7 to 5. Know where you vote on June 2nd!

STOP TRUMP’S REIGN: MAKE AMERICA SHINE AGAIN -LET'S GET A DECENT PERSON IN THE WHITE HOUSE - JOE BIDEN May 2019, revised thru Sept 21, 2019 .......... Sept 24 MEMO re: IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY: It's about time they started the process. Remember, there are maybe 100 impeachable offenses before the Ukraine issue; this is just the last straw. The rest of this article remains the same. PART 1 – TRUMP AS A DANGER TO AMERICAN DEMOCRACY Key points: (1.) Trump has committed serious crimes, including tax evasion and money laundering from Russian sources, which relates to why and how he has conducted foreign policy as a TRAITOR and Russian asset, endangering our national security. (2) He has ignored his oath of office by failing to protect and defend the Constitution and American interests. He has abused his powers and been in rampant violation of the Constitution and committed many impeachable offenses. (3) He has governed for his own personal and political interests and not that of our country. (4.) Don’t vote for a TRAITOR and DESPOT just because we have a low “unemployment rate”. Millions of people can’t find a job or one which pays a living wage, or only find work part time or as a temp but aren’t counted in the unemployment statistics, due to antiquated methods of count. Further, the working masses are faced with healthcare, housing and education costs rising faster than wages. (5) Another four years of Trump packing the courts with conservative judges would grow his power and leave the Congress with little power, allowing Trump to act increasingly as a dictator ignoring the Constitution and the freedoms of all of us. (6) Trump is trying to destroy the pre-existing conditions guarantees we need as a healthcare safety net, This would endanger lives. He is supported in this and almost all things by Republican sycophants in the Senate. (7) He is mentally unbalanced: hot-headed and putting us at risk of war; supportive of dictators and critical of NATO, unable to keep a Cabinet or other staff, incompetent generally to run the government, a racist demagogue and a chronic liar. (8) Trump and his Republican party are waging 'War on Women' and suppressing voter rights. This alone should enrage more than half the population. Trump wants to Reign as a King! (9) Trump's immigration ploy is his ultimate con job in that Republicans have for many years enabled illegal immigration to keep wages down on the backs of the very people who are now ironically his "base"- a modern day version of the Trojan horse as he victimizes his supporters by fighting to destroy healthcare, harming the working and middle classes, consumers and farmers with tariffs and lowering taxes on only the wealthy. (10) Trump displays a virulent racism, sowing hate and domestic terrorism, and has blood on his hands in consequence of his words and actions As Americans we have to face that he is a danger to our American heritage and must be impeached or otherwise voted out of office in 2020- along with his Republican apologists. (11). Our growing national deficit of over a trillion dollars approximates the tax giveaway he signed for the wealthy elite, meaning that the rest of us are subsidizing the wealthy and giving up infrastructure, education, environmental protection and healthcare for their sake. (12) Trump by his daily behavior is no doubt mentally ill- a "TWEETY-BIRD" ready for the funny farm. If he was an ordinary executive or teacher or whatever - he would be deemed deranged and fired : ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Part 2- BIDEN IS BEST to DEFEAT TRUMP Biden has the best chance by far to defeat Trump. Certainly he can win over the working class white voters who comprise most of Trump’s base. He can also get crossover endorsements from moderate Republicans and as President work with Republicans in the Senate, having been a respected Senator for 36 years. As Vice President for eight years, he worked closely with President Obama, who entrusted him with serious tasks, unlike Trump’s prop Pence. Biden can be tough and effective in debates against Trump. None of the other Democratic primary candidates have the status or experience of Biden, who can get funding and support from Democrats across the board. Biden is also well known and respected among world leaders and is the best person to repair the damage Trump has done to our international standing. He will be able to counter Russian transgressions into our democracy. Biden is a rational person who will govern as the Constitution and the rule of law requires, and not as a tyrant like Trump. Biden also has the ability to run the government efficiently and to unify the nation and heal the wounds that Trump created and exploited. We must unify as an electorate and ensure that an honorable and competent President will be elected in 2020. In short, if we have 20-20 vision, Biden is our best bet. Biden has compassion and character. Compare that to Trump's ruthlessness, greed and truckload of lies. Remember, we have one champion to choose in the big battle for the White House. We should choose a contender who can win. PART 3- DEMOCRATS MUST NOT FORFEIT THE WHITE HOUSE WITH A WISHFUL PRIMARY CHOICE. In all likelihood, as I write this, Elizabeth Warren is Biden’s main contender for the Democratic nomination. If she became the Democratic candidate she would be crushed by Trump. That is because, although she has active support from the progressive wing of the Democratic party, that is only a small part of the electorate. The electorate can be roughly divided into three thirds. One third is for Trump regardless; one third is for a Democrat regardless; and one third is up for grabs. That middle third is somewhat moderate and pragmatic and would favor Biden but won’t vote for Warren. She is too “pie in the sky” with her expensive wish list which would raise taxes on everyone and never get support in Congress anyway. For example, most voters want to allow private medical insurance to exist while having a government public medical insurance option and a guarantee on pre-existing conditions (Biden’s plan) but forcing medicare ONLY (Warren’s plan)- would raise taxes and even bankrupt the country. Let’s get real. Biden can win because people know he has common sense, can get wide support and get things done. Like winning the White House back and saving the country from Trump trauma.
