Statement of Mayor Rhodes-Conway on Honoring Former Mayor Joel Skornicka by Flying Flags at Half-Staff
We commemorate the life of former Madison Mayor Joel Skornicka. Mayor Skornicka served as Madison’s Mayor from 1979-1983. Mayor Skornicka was a man who knew how to build consensus. We can all continue to learn from his catchphrase “working together works.” We salute his contributions to our great City and send our deepest condolences to family, friends, and former colleagues. With authorization from Governor Tony Evers, the City of Madison directs the flag of the United States and the flag of the State of Wisconsin be flown at half-staff throughout the City of Madison, beginning at sunrise and ending at sunset on Thursday, December 5, the date of interment.
