Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely baby daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
The Franklin Common Council tonight will consider Mayor Taylor’s appointment of former Alderman Pete Kosovich to the Plan Commission.
Kosovich is an excellent choice and should be approved by the Council.
Kosovich is a small businessman with knowledge of local ordinances, state rules and regulations, and has had experience in dealing with Franklin business and economic development issues. He would be a perfect fit for the Plan Commission.
To suggest that Kosovich is just a TV repairman is insulting and out of line. Kosovich is a small businessman who dedicated himself to public service and wants to do it again.
Was he thrown out of office? Sure, if you consider losing by such a narrow margin that a recount was necessary being “thrown out of office.”
Political boards and commissions all across the state are filled with appointees of people who once held public office who bring a wealth of institutional knowledge to the table.
I am confident Kosovich will be a great addition to the Plan Commission. He needs to be approved at tonight’s meeting.
