I hope everyone has had a great first half of February! My campaign has been on
the low key side in respect for those candidates in Districts 1 & 11 as
well as the attention put on the 98th Assembly District for some parts of
Waukesha. I look forward to getting into more details of my thoughts on issues
facing Waukesha and District 12 in the next six weeks.
Since I posted last, a lot has happened in Waukesha. In my District and
neighborhood in particular there was a great example of what a resident can
accomplish with their Alderman's help. In River Hills Estates, a resident felt
there was a safety issue for the children who live in the area and made the
case for stop signs to be installed at a potentially dangerous intersection.
Alderman Hastings assisted the resident in the opportunity to present this case
and it was approved by the Building & Grounds Committee. For some reason,
almost three months later this decision was put in question (not by the
committee or Alderman Hastings) by another resident. This case was presented
again and approved again keeping the children in our neighborhood
safe with my support. Being proactive in safety is a policy we need to
follow and one I'll pursue as Alderman.
The BID...I attended the Common Counsel meeting the night the bylaws and
budget were approved. A vote came to the Counsel to postpone the vote of
the bylaws and budget for sixty days. It was voted down.
This was a measure I would have preferred due to the fact that new Alderman
would be in place as well as it would have given the BID disbandment process
more time to proceed and Counsel more information to go on.
Just a few issues I'll be touching on in the next blogs...
--West Waukesha Bypass
--Waukesha water supply
--Proposed Fire Station off Oakdale Drive
--Park plans for River Hills Estates
--Crime and Safety
To speak with me individually on any issue please call me at 414 795 0990.
Having spent time attending both forums for the candidates for District 11 and
had correspondence with four of the five of them I feel it
appropriate to voice who I'd prefer to work with if elected myself.
All five gentlemen have good intentions and I applaud them for what they
are doing and encourage their community involvement even if not in the role of
Alderman. If I had a vote in District 11 I would cast it for James Cowee. I
believe the mixture of his work experience, community involvement and passion
for ensuring the District is properly represented is impressive.
