I smiled when I looked at the return address, and anxious to see what the topic was, I read about a problem I was able to quickly address for this anonymous constituent. Keep those letter coming. I’ll do my best.
I was sworn in as 2nd District Alderman Friday afternoon in an impromptu but necessary way at city hall.

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.
Check them out.
What’s the Creative Space’s right hand man up to? Why is he smiling and where is he?
