Craig Wentzel is the

right choice for council

Dear Editor:

Craig Wentzel, longtime Wauwatosa resident and community activist, is a candidate for alderperson in District 6 in the April 5 election. Craig is running as a write-in candidate.

Craig has worked as a welder, welding supervisor and plant manager. Now semi-retired, he teaches welding at MATC.

Craig serves on the steering committee of Grassroots Tosa. He has worked on issues ranging from support for our public schools and public employees, maintaining balanced development and advocating for family-supporting wages, to getting big money out of politics. He has knocked on doors, made phone calls and worked on get-out-the-vote drives. He has taken leadership to organize informational forums on various community issues like education, healthcare policy and conservation.

Craig not only supports these issues, his track record of leadership bears out his commitment to the community. He is a hard-working and enthusiastic leader and he will bring those qualities to the common council to serve his district effectively.
