Asking for our vote
My wife’s letter to the editor stirred some politicians to step outside into the fresh air:
By the numbers:
Candidates running for contested local office: 4
2 candidates running for alderman
2 candidates running for County Supervisor
Retiring Aldermen that knocked on our door to tell my wife she was absolutely right in her letter to the editor: 1
Alderman Charles Betker stopped by on Saturday to compliment my wife on her letter to the editor. It was a nice gesture from someone who didn’t have to do it now that he’s just one of the neighborhood. But it’s still his neighborhood, too.
Suggestions of a write-in campaign: 3
No, I’m not running for either position. Sorry. As for the lovely Doreen from Waukesha, until her work schedule changes she’ll be on the sidelines, too.
But not for too long.
