Tom grew up in Milwaukee, bartended in Wauwatosa in the '70s and moved here in 1984.
Commentary, observations and musings about the outdoors, life in general and maybe Tosa politics and personalities will be the order of the day. He savors a lively debate as much as terrific cooking.
I have been away.
Upon my return to Tosa I was thrilled to learn that I had received my very own personal copy of campaign muck - Authorized and paid for by Tosans for Responsible Government, Stanley L. Zurawski, Sr. Treasurer - as an unbiased and ostensibly independent supporter of the Didier for Mayor Campaign.
Do I sense that things have gone down-hill lately at Didier High Command?
Since I posted the first of two Campaign Finance Disclosures I have had a number of folks tell me that as soon as they saw a member of the Zurawski clan supporting candidate Didier for mayor...that was all they needed to know.
They would not consider voting for her - no way - no how.
Zurawski, Sr. is predictable for getting the facts wrong.
Seems most well-adjusted Tosans don't get too worked-up over images of - mall mannequins - or related campaign hyperbole.
For sure there are a few others who will see things differently.
So to a certain extent Ms. Didier will be judged by the company she keeps.
If I was running for mayor I certainly wouldn't want the help of someone who has lost so many mayoral elections.
That would be like inviting the Curse of the Mummy.
We'll know after election day.
Oh. Almost forgot.
That piece of literature from Zurawski. Sr. that I was talking about - well it was included with Alderman Grimm's reelection piece.
To learn more about Bernie Grimm just Google Bernie Grimm - last time I looked it was vying for second or third place as a Google hit.
Bernie Grimm - you have arrived.
