What is the biggest challenge facing Muskego and how would you address it?

The biggest challenge facing Muskego and the county is the heroin drug problem. Recent news reports stated more young people are dying from heroin than from automobile accidents. This is tragic; it tears families apart trying to cope with the loss of a child. All of us should support our local police department, our schools, organizations or service clubs, neighborhood watch programs, our churches, whomever may be at the forefront of this issue. We need to be aware, understand and know the signs of drug abuse, so we can lend a helping hand to young people and support their families.

What are the best reasons for people to vote for you?

The best reason to vote for me is because I will be a fiscal conservative and carry out the core values taught to me by the US Air Force: Integrity first, Service before self and Excellence in all we do. I will bring integrity to the council as your alderman, I will provide service to my constituents foremost by being prepared and attending all the council meetings, and I will properly represent my district with excellence and a professional attitude at all times. I've lived my life with fiscal common sense and the core values instilled from the USAF.

What is the biggest challenge facing Muskego and how would you address it?

Taxes/ Spending

I am committed to holding the line on taxes. I was the only Common Council member to vote against the current budget due to home values being lowered. At budget time I also raised the issue of wants vs. needs when it came time to spend your tax dollars. I am dedicated to making Muskego an affordable place for families to raise children as well as for the older community to live. I will continue to bring new business to Muskego. I voted to add a K-9 unit to the Police Department due to growing use of drugs.

What are the best reasons for people to vote for you?

I am committed to doing everything possible to make Muskego a better place to live. My knowledge and experience benefit Muskego with a realistic vision for the future. As an honest dependable hard working family man I believe that the voter needs to be heard and I'm not be afraid to speak out for what is important. I am watchful and look out for the well-being of Muskego. My plan is simple, review all the facts, listen to the community and make common sense decisions based on what is right for you. Re-electing Robert Wolfe Alderman will make the difference.
