Why doesn’t Deanna Alexander have the courage to stand behind her convictions?

Late last year, Deanna Alexander, the conservative candidate for the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors in the 18th district, made it abundantly clear on her Facebook page that she was (and presumably still is) a staunch supporter of Republican Gov. Scott Walker, writing, “I am supportive of the changes our Governor has made. I support keeping Scott Walker in office.”

Alexander also wrote, “I think the most important thing to recognize here is that the government is not in the business of employing people, nor should it be,” a curious statement to be sure, considering firefighters and police officers are employed by the government.

However, since sharing her thoughts on Facebook Alexander has scrubbed her campaign’s Facebook page clean of any her comments in support of Gov. Walker, leaving me to wonder why Deanna Alexander isn’t willing to stand behind her comments in support of Gov. Scott Walker. If Deanna Alexander truly supports Gov. Scott Walker, as she herself wrote that she did, she should stand behind her comments so that her potential constituents know where she really stands when it comes to her support for Gov. Scott Walker.

  1. As someone who lives in the 18th District (in both the old and new maps) I could care less how either candidate feels about Scott Walker.

    I’m more interested in how they plan to serve me as a County Supervisor. How responsible will they be our taxes? With the resources they have, how will they maintain the sheriff’s department, the parks and transportation?

    It is possible to disagree with someone and not agree with recalls. People approached me about recalling Sen. Taylor after she left the state to not do her job. I told them that even though I disagree with that tactic and with her politically I didn’t think a recall was warranted. It would be wiser to support another candidate in the next election.

    In the 18th District I’m more concerned that the people who supported Johnny L. Thomas are lining up behind Tracey Corder in her effort to represent me. Mr. Thomas even signed Tracey’s nomination papers.

    Looking at the verify the recall site I see that neither candidate signed the recall petitions. Does that mean that both candidates support the Gov? No, it shows that they are concentrating on what’s important to county voters not some made up issues from an outside group or person.

    Both candidates are wise to not play the gotcha game with you or any other organization and concentrate on the important issues of the district.

  2. Funny how you take quotes out if context for the modern day lynching but never mention once that Alexander’s opponent has a CCAP record she refuses to answer for. This is a non partisian seat so where are your District 18 questions? It is irresponsible journalism like this that keeps government at a deadlock. This was a very sad excuse for journalism. This district is in dire need of change, we need proper vetting of candidates. Not Dem love and target shooting.

    • Nothing was taken out of context; the quote I provided is exactly what Deanna Alexander wrote.

      Listen, if you want a Scott Walker supporting, anti-equality conservative representing your district on the County Board then so be it.

      As to your comment about the quality of this journalism, I’m not a journalist, nor am I trying to be. Journalists are supposed to be unbiased; I am clearly not.

      You should be ashamed of yourself.

      You should be more careful about the metaphors, and hyperbole, you choose to employ, particularly when it concerns a truly trivial subject matter.

      “Lynching” is a serious subject. You demean the word, and you dishonor the people who were actually lynched.

      Don’t use it unless you’re actually talking about lynching, and the role that it played in the intimidation and subjugation of African-Americans during a God-awful period of American history.
