From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
Mayor Tom Barrett will strut the runway this spring.
It’s for a good cause, too. Barrett and his wife, Kris, as well as Kenya Bell, wife of Milwaukee Bucks player Charlie Bell, and former TV reporter Julie Feldman will take part in “Awear,” the fifth annual fashion event to [...]
Down at the bottom of Judge Randy Koschnick’s Supreme Court campaign website, there’s a clean campaign ticker counting down the days since Judge Koschnick invited Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson to sign a clean campaign pledge. According to Judge Koschnick’s website, Judge Koschnick “said he believes the two can disagree while maintaining a high level of [...]
There’s no question there’s a lot at stake in the upcoming spring elections, both on a statewide level and more importantly on the local level. Here in South Milwaukee, voters will have to choose two individuals to serve for the next three years as members of the school board. To help voters make their choices, [...]
Take a look at the ad being run by Randy Koschnick’s campaign (it’s on the right hand side of the image) and tell me if you see anything wrong with it:

Since when do Republicans support bigger government?
I think it’s a question that’s worth asking, especially on the heels of a report in the Journal Sentinel that Republican State Senator Ted Kanavas of Brookfield and Republican State Representative Leah Vukmir of Wauwatosa have introduced a bill to dissolve Milwaukee Public Schools and replace it with [...]
I blogged earlier today about State DPI Superintendent candidate Tony Evers’ use of state resources to engage in campaign-related activities. However, as some bloggers and the Democratic Party of Wisconsin have noted, Republican State Representative Don Pridemore may have violated state election laws for an email he sent off using his state email account, and [...]
Alexis and I spent today in Madison at the Capitol, where we joined hundreds of fellow AFSCME brothers and sisters to speak to our legislators. The highlight of the day for Alexis was probably when she got to sit behind Rep. Mark Honadel’s desk, while the highlight for me was meeting Sen. Jeff Plale for [...]

According to Mark Belling, an open records request he initiated regarding Jeffrey Dickert’s [...]
