WISN’s Mark Belling endorsed Jeff Scrima because of Mayor Larry Nelson’s support for the RTA. Does anyone know Scrima’s actual position on the issue? Or is he still listening? Here’s another good question. If Mayor Larry Nelson loses to Jeff Scrima in conservative Waukesha in part because of the shoes he wears, will Dave Westlake […]
