F-35s in Madison

Yesterday I along with Alders Abbas, Foster, Heck, Rummel and Kemble introduced a resolution for consideration at the 9/17 Common Council meeting: Responding to the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Air National Guard F-35A Operational Beddown. The lengthy resolution … [read more]

George Floyd and the Virus of Racism

Like many of you, I've spent the last several days deeply, deeply saddened. I need not go into details. You know why. The question is how to respond. There are many good books out there. How To Be An Anti-Racist by Ibram X. Kendi. White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo. Not that … [read more]

It's a Marathon, Not a Sprint

Hi Everyone. We've been reminded several times since the start of the pandemic that this is not a sprint, but a marathon. We weren't certain when it started just how long it would last, but it's evident, and has been for a while, that we'll be dealing with the direct and indirect impacts of … [read more]

Let's Talk About Violence

Hi Everyone, Early Wednesday morning, in a case that's just now getting attention, a young black woman named Althea Bernstein was waiting at a traffic light downtown when she was viciously attacked. Her assailants called her the N-word, sprayed lighter fluid on her and lit her on fire. She … [read more]

A July 4th Reflection

"You may rejoice, I must mourn." Hi Everyone. Yesterday afternoon, I was listening to a conversation between two female anti-racist educators on Instagram when I was struck by the parting words: "Happy not-my-Independence Day Weekend." Like many of you, I didn't grow up conflicted about … [read more]

Looking Forward

Hi Everyone, Back in March, the prevailing thought was we'd shut down for a couple of months, maybe through the end of the school year, but by summer we'd be back to normal. Now it's the last day of July and normal is no longer within reach. This begs the question -- if we can't look to … [read more]

The Death of an Innocent 11-year-old Girl

Hi Everyone, Today is a very sad day. This morning at 11:11 am, 11-year-old Anisa Scott was disconnected from life support. The tragic loss of this young life, the pain her family is feeling, the sense of loss we have as a city in mourning, all call out for a response. I attended … [read more]

Living the Paradox

Hi Everyone, It's possible for two things to be true at the same time. Which is to say it's possible to be outraged by the murderous attack on Jacob Blake while opposing property destruction as counter-productive. This paradox is not unlike the dismay and anger one feels about gun … [read more]

District 13 Updates: Vote!, Snow Emergency Zone Expansion, Buy Local

Hi Everyone, I can't ignore the spectacle we were subjected to Tuesday night. The "debate" was a low-water mark in our democracy. Rather than dwelling on it to the point of despair, let's choose to double down on our own expressions of participatory democracy. Most importantly in my mind … [read more]

District 13 Updates: Vilas Park Drive, 1224 South Park, Fingers Crossed

Hi Everyone, Here we are. Election Day. Memories of this day four years ago, the mixture of hope and dread. Daring to believe we can begin to undo the calamity of the past four years, not wanting to be blindsided once again by dashed hopes. Fingers crossed. So many fingers … [read more]

District 13 Updates: Plan Amendment, Vilas Park Drive

Hi Everyone, Triangle Monona Bay Neighborhood Plan Amendment Based on concerns expressed by residents at Bayview and the CDA apartments, I've proposed an amendment to the Triangle Monona Bay Neighborhood Plan.
