Greetings from Alder Bill Tishler

Alder Bill Tishler with his dog VioletDear District 11 neighbors and friends,

My name is Bill Tishler, and I have been a resident of Madison for over 50 years, living in the Sunset Hills and Westmorland neighborhoods. It is an honor to be appointed to serve as your Alder and I will build upon the success of Alder Martin.

When my wife, Jennifer, and I began looking for our first house in 2004, we wanted to live in an area that was affordable, within walking distance to public schools, parks and libraries, and had good access to public transportation and a bike path. District 11 had all the amenities we wanted and we were fortunate to find a home in the area. One of the first neighbors who came over to greet us was former Madison Mayor Otto Festge, who lived two doors down from us. The ferns he gave us are still growing in our yard.

Jennifer and I have three kids, who all attend (or attended) MMSD schools. Our oldest son just graduated from West High School and will be starting college this fall. The newest addition to our family, our dog Violet, joined us in 2020. When you see Violet and me walking down your street, please don't hesitate to stop and say hello. I will also connect with District 11 residents via this email/blog and plan to host regular online and in-person "District 11 Discussions." These community gatherings are an opportunity for us to share ideas, opinions, and concerns. I will announce times for these shortly on this blog. Please email with topics you would like to discuss.

I am looking forward to serving as your Alder and having the opportunity to give back to a community that has given me so much. I will work tirelessly to represent all residents of District 11.
