Join Eric Bussell and Angie Patton as they recap the 2013 Spring Election in Champaign County.  Eric brings a conservative point of view while Angie counters with liberal perspective.  You will not find this type of informed and entertaining local #chambana coverage anywhere. 

In this episode, Eric and Angie discuss Lynn Stuckey's suprise election victory in the Champaign School Board race.  As you might now, Lynn Stuckey is famous for breastfeeding here 8 year old son and was even featured on Good Morning America.  (http://www.cbsnews.com/2100-201_162-530620.html)

Eric shamelessly plugs the Hensley Revolution of 2012 as Hensely Township elected to replace the Township Board with a woman majority after a contention zoning process that ultimately ended with the County Board approval of Pear Tree Estates (http://peartreeestate.com/) in rurual Hensley Township, just north of Champaign.

We also talk about the impressive Andy Quarntrom victory over Pam Borowski.  Eric discusses his frustration with the lack of enthusiasm for Pam and why people should be paying attention...while Angie gives some great perspective (as always) on Andy's efforts.  Both Pam and Andy were guests on our show in the weeks leading up to the election. 

We also discuss Will Kyle's 64 vote victory over Gina Jackson and the circus surrounding that election.  Is there a Boogeyman lurking in District 1? 

Also, Angie goes on the record as threatening to kill Eric on election night.  Although things can get intense during election time between these two, no orders of protection were necessary.  Instead, for his own safety, Eric will be calling Gordy Hulten to address the AC probem at Brookens.
