Last Day as Your Alder

Today is the last day of the current alder term and four years since I wrote my first blog post as your alder. 

It’s been an incredible opportunity and I’ve learned a lot and I really appreciate the support and appreciation that many of you have offered along the way. In many ways, it’s hard to imagine not continuing to serve.

Dina Nina Martinez-Rutherford will be sworn in tomorrow as your new District 15 alder. I’m excited for Dina to bring her perspective to the work of the city and wish her the best as she works to represent District 15 on the Madison Common Council.
