When I wrote yesterday’s column for the Waukesha Freeman (still just 50 cents, a bargain to see my picture every Thursday), I mentioned how the mayoral race was largely a matter of Republicans and Democrats in the supposedly non-partisan election.

Be on the alert for a stolen Mark Gundrum yard sign, the first reported yard sign theft of the Spring in Waukesha.

The Christmas Parade is this Sunday already. Time to clear the table with some last-minute blogging before the turkey arrives. Unlike Garrison Keillor’s Lake Woebegone, it has hardly been […]

Former Waukesha County Executive Dan Finley might have wanted to wait before endorsing former Waukesha Democratic Party Chairman Rich Congdon for judge. Finley, once talked of as a possible Republican candidate for governor, is now Congdon’s “Honorary Chair of the Committee.” Congdon now has a formidable opponent in State Rep. Mark Gundrum. Gundrum is quoted […]
