Hometown Radio Reported, "Commissioners Chuck Pennel and Ron Herschend were surprised when Hometown Radio told them Neeley was not allowing media anywhere near her office.
Also, reporter Vonda Sheets of the Branson Daily Independent was ordered off a public sidewalk in front of the clerk's office and Neeley told her she was not allowed to take photos of election judges. This has never happened before ... back in the April election Hometown Daily News.com took photos of election judges without a problem".
The Branson Edge took this exclusive photo of the election judges.
You may be wondering at this point why the woman to the left hand side is holding up one finger. Allow me to explain... An election judge must arrive in Taney County at 4:30 in the morning, the photo above was taken at 10 PM or on their 17th hour of community service.
The judges were asked on a scale of 1 to 5, by show of fingers, how enjoyable the experience was. Only one person voted and as you can see she wasn't too happy.
Commissioner Ron Hershend prepared food and pleaded vigorously with the County Clerk for an early release of the tired, hungry and irritated judges, a nice gesture particulary for a politician with a seat secured for another 2 years.
