A response to Alderman Joe Davis

Tuesday’s 15th district community meeting went well. It was a productive meeting regarding the pros and cons of the proposed streetcar. Alderman Joe Davis was one of many interested community members who attended. Given his “senior status,” I would have expected him to understand that simply repeating untruths at a louder volume than everyone else does not make them true.

But it seems as if my colleague Alderman Davis may be incorrect with his statements about more than just the streetcar proposal. The Milwaukee Common Council has no “junior” members, but apparently once you start making statements that are frivolous in their approach to the facts, you just don’t stop.

I must, therefore, assume that Alderman Davis is acknowledging my youthful charm and good looks. Irrespective of the repartee, I look forward to working positively with my colleague for the good of our city.
