Dan Cody Running for County Supervisor

I usually don't spotlight candidates on this blog, but I wanted to put in a plug for Dan Cody and his run for Milwaukee County Supervisor in the 15th district.

For those who don't know, Dan writes the "Left on the Lake" blog, and he's also a colleague of mine at UWM. We don't cross paths on campus very often, but every time we have I've been impressed by his professionalism and the respect he garners from others at the university.

Dan is a good guy, and a smart guy. He's also really good with technology, as you can see from his campaign website. Most important, though, is Dan's obvious commitment to Milwaukee County.

So, if you live in the 15th district of Milwaukee County -- see map below -- check out Dan's campaign site and listen to what he has to say if you see him out and about in the community.

That's quite a map. How long did it take Ament's boyzzzz to gerrymander that district?

Considering it's a largely pro-Walker supervisor who currently represents the district, you tell me.

As the JS put it last year: "De Bruin had followed a more conservative, pro-Walker path the past two budgets after western Wauwatosa was added to her Milwaukee district in 2004."

Now, who was county exec in 2004?

County Board leaderhsip -- not Ament or Walker -- was mostly responsible for the gerrymandering of this district.

Right Gretchen, the redistricting committee was made up of several supervisors back in 2001; Bailey, McGuigan, Ryan, White, Weishan, Diliberti, and Mayo. They had counsel on the process from several lawyers and consultants at the time and presented their recommendation to the entire Board in late 2001.

That said, thanks for your kind words and support Seth.

Thanks for clearing that up, Gretchen and Dan.
