Good move by Franklin mayor Tom Taylor

I received the following e-mail today from Franklin alderman Kristin Wilhelm regarding Tuesday's 5-1 vote by the Franklin Common Council to apply for stimulus funds to modify S. 51st Street from Rawson to College Avenue:

"It was another double work day with evening meetings and this is the first chance to get back with all of you. Thank you to all who attended the Tuesday evening Council meeting. I started to write several times about the meeting but I just couldn’t find the words to express my displeasure with the process that took place. Those who attended would probably agree.

However, good thing I had to wait since you will be pleased to learn that your voice HAS made a difference.

I just received notice from the Office of the City Clerk that the Mayor will Veto the Council's action taken on Tuesday for 51st North of Rawson Ave.

More to come soon….."

Wilhelm was the only alderman to vote against the application.

More from John Neville of FranklinNOW.

The Common Council has the votes to override the mayor's veto if it chooses to do so.

Goodbye and God bless you, Angie

Don't forget the high schools

The NCAA isn't the only action going.

The boy's state high school basketball tournament begins Thursday.

Steve Tietz has an in-depth preview. So does the Journal Sentinel.

New state slogan

It fits, not like the Governor's stolen idea of "Live Like You Mean It."

This one comes from state Representative Robin Vos (R-Racine).


Makes sense to me

This bill, that is.

Gosh, if only we'd get this passed so once and for all we could have office pools at the state Capitol.
