Citing the logistics of juggling his current job with a state Assembly campaign and possible seat in the Legislature, Oak Creek Mayor Steve Scaffidi has changed course and will no longer run in a special election.
Scaffidi told Patch earlier this week he wanted to take on both the roles of mayor and state representative. His remarks came shortly after state Rep. Mark Honadel announced he would resign the 21st Assembly seat in mid-September.
But after a few days of consideration, he said Friday it became apparent that wouldn’t be possible.
Now that Scaffidi has changed his mind and decided against a run for the Assembly in the 21st district, I can’t help but wonder who we’ll see running for both parties in the special election.
Will we see Franklin Alderman/County Supervisor Steve Taylor throw his hat in the ring? What about South Milwaukee Alderman Erik Brooks? Anyone have any ideas on who else we might see take a run for the seat?
