I owe a lot of people a debt of gratitude.
Thanks to Jeff at North American Computer for repairing our computer twice in the last couple weeks. The blog is a happy blog. Thanks also to visitors of WaukeshaNOW for their patience while Jeff did his thing.
My prediction for the mayoral primary? One of the winners will be Mayor Nelson. He's done and is doing more for the city than any other mayor. He seems to have been working well with other governments, council members and city staff. Even though I'm not real happy about our assessment, flooding or condition of city streets, I can't hold Mayor Larry personally responsible for the state of the economy or acts of God. Larry is a tireless cheerleader for the city and has a decent plan for it's future.
Who will his opponent be in April? My guess would be Jeff Scrima. Jeff seems to have a bigger following, especially with younger voters. He's spent a lot on front page Freeman ads and has a decent web site. Jeff has quite a few contemporary, if impractical, ideas. Jeff is dead-set against buying water from Milwaukee, with good reason. I was especially interested in his position on water from the Fox River and quarries, since I take some credit (blame?) for first mentioning it here Feb. 18, 2007. I thought it a good idea at the time, but found no support. Jeff clearly did more investigating than I and thinks it feasable. We must still go through with the Great Lakes application, but it would be nice to have a backup plan.
