Once again, Wauwatosa is blessed with excellent candidates to serve as Mayor and we commend both Pete Donegan and Kathy Ehley for their service to Wauwatosa and for running positive campaigns.
As aldermen and committee chairmen, we are acutely aware of the financial challenges of the city’s near future and the difficult decisions we may face.
We also know that Pete Donegan already has an excellent grasp of the issues and city finances and both the Common Council and the administration need this knowledge and experience in the mayor’s office.
Pete led the development of consensus in council on the infrastructure and employee benefit issues. Pete has never shied away from tough decisions and has displayed commitment to what is best for our city even in the face of strong opposition.
We believe that these are important attributes for the next mayor.
We hope you will vote for Pete Donegan for mayor on April 3.
