Chris Kapenga announced yesterday that he is going to take on State Rep Paul Farrow (son of Margaret) to fill the upcoming state senate vacancy caused by State Senator Rich Zipperer leaving to join Governor Scott Walker’s administration.

A disappointed cadre of Waukesha Environmental Action League members then left the meeting muttering about “right wing […]

Waukesha County Solid Waste Supervisor Karen Fiedler and Charìene Lemoine of the Waukesha Environmental Action League (WEAL) were scheduled to do a presentation on the pay-as-you-throw garbage fee at tonight’s city of Waukesha Public Works Board meeting and how to sell it to a skeptical public.

A reliable source tells me that State Senator Rich Zipperer (R-Pewaukee) will announce today at noon that he is resigning effective August 5th to take a position with Governor Scott Walker’s administration. State Representative Bill Kramer (R-Waukesha), who had previously considered running for that state senate seat when Ted Kanavas chose not to seek re-election, […]
