It couldn’t have been our state representative from the 97th district voting for publicly funding a new arena for the Milwaukee Bucks, right? After all, the guy who won that special election, Scott Allen, wrote an op-ed last year explaining why he opposed public funding. Waukesha taxpayers weren’t going to pay for an arena in Milwaukee. You can […]

I get the frustration of Aaron Perry’s campaign, but pushing a story that Scott Allen donated to Bill Kramer twice as some sort of big deal is just cheap and pathetic. Michael Brander is really new to blogging so he might not have thought this hit piece through, but it is slimy. It is guilt […]

Waukesha Freeman Thursday, August 7, 2014 Page A5 Opinion Candidates have just five days Allen, Rosner top contenders Only five more shopping days left in the primary campaign season. Have you picked a candidate? As former Waukesha Mayor Larry Nelson observed the other night, in a field this large, normally one or two candidates are […]

Maybe the candidates in the 97th Assembly district should take a cue from the Cub Scouts: Cub Scout Vesper Song Softly falls the light of day, While our campfire fades away, Silently each Cub should ask, Have I done my daily task? For my country done my best? Prayed to God before I rest? Helped […]

Coming into the final week of the campaign in the 97th Assembly district, the Allen campaign and the Rosner campaign are nearly even in cash on hand. Kathleen Cummings’s campaign got a sudden boost, but still is third behind the leaders. Scott Allen raised $8,600 this period, bringing the campaign total to $25,970.98. Of the […]

Waukesha Alderman and County Supervisor Kathleen Cummings is in for $10,000. In the latest campaign finance report, she loaned her campaign $10,000 in the latest reporting period. In addition, she raised $5900 in donations, $2700 on July 7th and then $3200 at her fundraiser on July 17th. She has $3,323.27 in cash on hand. Cummings’ […]

On the eve of what I believe is the final candidate forum in the 97th Assembly district, Waukesha Alderman Aaron Perry is reminding voters that at the last forum he was the only one to speak against raising the gas tax. From his press release today: Video of a forum held by the Republican Women […]

Four candidates in the 97th Assembly district, Vince Trovato, Kathleen Cummings, Joe Banske and Aaron Perry, went to a candidate forum on drinking, smoking and drugs. (Add firearms and they could have had a really good time.) They must have checked their belief in freedom and parental rights at the door. Wisconsin has a loophole […]

I’ve said before I’m not endorsing a candidate  but that still has not stopped people from trying to guess who I am supposedly supporting. It’s a funny game, and I usually fall back on, “the candidate that will supply me with the most copy for my column.” I do vote, unlike some other writers and […]

It’s the gift that keeps on giving to Scott Allen. On Wednesday, Charlie Sykes on WTMJ made a verbal jab at Brandon Rosner (37:20 minute mark) for making what Sykes called, “the single stupidest comment made by a candidate.”  Yes, there was a reminder that Rosner gave money to Democratic Minority Leader Peter Barca while Allen […]
