It appears my prayers have been answered, as State Rep. Mark Honadel (R-South Milwaukee) will have a Democratic challenger for the seat he occupies in the State Assembly. Honadel’s Democratic challenger is Thomas A. Michalski, who currently serves as the alderman for Oak Creek’s 6th District. I don’t know much about Mr. Michalski or his politics (though I’ll surely try to find out more), but I’m certainly encouraged by the prospect of Rep. Honadel having a Democratic challenger in November.
I’ve long maintained the 21st Assembly District isn’t conservative enough to warrant Rep. Honadel running unopposed as often as he has, and I can only hope Thomas Michalski plans on making a serious run against Rep. Honadel, because the voters of the 21st Assembly District deserve a real choice on their ballots in November.
I’ll have more on the candidacy of Thomas Michalski in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
