City of Madison Weekly Meeting Schedule
City Meetings this Month for select committees. For full legislative calendar, see the City of Madison Legislative Information Center.
I have decided not to run in the 2015 aldermanic election for a number of reasons. Primarily, I have been assigned to a large project at work and do not feel that I would be able to devote enough time to the district. However, I will continue to be engaged with our neighborhoods and watch how things unfold for the next couple of years.
I think that competition in our local elections is a benefit for all of us. It is very easy for incumbent officials to relax and wait for problems to happen. Unfortunately, I still see that being the case in our district. We need to get in front of issues and address them in advance, not wait for them to become problems. Whether that is for development proposals or infrastructure improvements, it is not good enough to wait and see what happens. That is not leadership.
I ran in 2013 because I know that we can do better. It was not about a night club. It was not about restaurants and patios. It was about leadership and working together to make our neighborhoods stronger. Here is to looking forward.
Please remember to vote this spring:
