The final set of 100 portraits by local photographer Kevin Poirier reflecting Kenosha’s racial diversity on the faces of Frank and Southport elementary school students was pasted up Thursday on a spacious lot in the downtown district.
Kenosha Creative Space’s Francisco Loyola and Steve Hawkins worked for two days hanging the 24″ x 36″ prints provided by the University of Wisconsin – Parkside on the side of a building at 5811 6th Ave.
Poirier was struck by the kids’ lack of awareness or concern about their racial identity. They just saw themselves as kids. Loyola says he truly believes these kids are Kenosha’s future and wondered which one will be our next Mayor.
Our future is even harder to predict these days, which makes looking at these portraits a joy.

All of you have until April 2 to request an absentee ballot through myvote.wi.gov
It took me just a few minutes to do so last week. Just be sure you are able to attach a scan or photo of your Wisconsin drivers license. Voting absentee is the surest method to stay safe from spreading or contracting the COVID-19 virus that has disrupted our daily lives.
I am greatly honored and thankful to the Kenosha AFL-CIO Council for endorsing my 2nd district aldermanic candidacy today. Council President Richard Gallo called me this afternoon with the good news. Thank You!
