I don’t think I’m ready for two Mayor Nelsons


From Pete Kennedy’s column in the Waukesha Freeman.

Henry has never met the mayor, though he has spent a lot of time with his cutout – which is much, much, much, much quieter than the real thing.

Is there a resemblance? Henry isn’t so sure. His son, who has met Nelson, doesn’t see it either – though plenty of others obviously do.

Henry is perfectly happy to look like the mayor. “The mayor would probably look at me and say, ‘Do people really think I look like that?’ Henry said. “I’m complimented. I don’t know if he’d take looking like me that way.”

Oh he would, Henry. He would. Otherwise, I’d suggest breaking out the bottle and paper bag and taking a nap on the sidewalk.

I have Henry’s business card in case I ever need to complain about city government. And I have the Mayor’s phone number in case my Waukesha Freeman doesn’t get delivered on time. Or something like that.
