  1. I have known Bill for 70+ years, living across the street from him until I went in the navy after high school. He has always been a straight shooter with integrity anytime I have ever dealt with him, whether in grade school or later years in his official capacity. I live down in Fountain City, Bill, and unfortunately can’t vote for you. I can cheer for you though.
