It has been a great honor to represent the residents of Muskego's District 2 with a conservative voice as alderman over the past four years. As many already know, the majority vote for the 2011 redistricting changes made me geographically ineligible to represent the district effective in April. This change does not in any way diminish the degree to which I care about my constituents' representation on the Common Council.
I know and have interacted in various capacities with each of the men who seek to replace me in April. Both Bob Hammel and William Ledoux bring their own strengths as aldermanic candidates.
Hammel is outside the political loop, which allows him to look at problems with a fresh perspective and bring new ideas to the district. Having grown up with him, I have seen him demonstrate fiscal conservancy as well as personal fiscal responsibility. I believe that he has truly shown the right vision and mind set to properly represent the district.
The vast majority of decisions your alderman makes are directly related to your tax dollars on a large scale. As such, I cannot support an aldermanic candidate who has demonstrated a record of increasing taxes more than 11 percent and is struggling with personal financial issues that may compromise his commitment to stay focused on the needs of our city.
For these and many other reasons, I encourage you to support Hammel on April 2.
2nd District alderman, Muskego
