As the Telegram editorials recently emphasized, the coming election to replace Frank Boyle is very important and the presentations of the issue should be the major determinants as to how we vote.
In the meantime and/or days following, we will all decide how to vote if we haven't already. I have and have decided to express my views. Democracy in action, right?
I am supporting Nick Milroy and the following are my reasons. In these election cycles, we get election talk ad nauseam, so I'll keep it brief. First of all, I must state, up front, that I'm a Democrat and proud of it. I'm hoping that we can get the nation back in Democratic hands in the coming election to regain a balanced budget, a fair tax system for the middle class and war only as a last resort as we did have until eight years ago.
My first reason for selecting Nick Milroy was the recommendation of Frank Boyle who has held that Wisconsin Assembly seat for more than 20 years. He knows the issues, the off limits, the obstacles and the inroads. He supports Nick and that, in my opinion, is a reason for supporting Nick Milroy.
Bob Jauch, our state senator, has been in office for considerable number of years and will be working with the new-elect. He summarized some issues that he and Nick would be supporting but put the most important summary succinctly.
Nick Milroy is a hard-working, honest and straight forward person. He is exactly the person we need representing us in the Assembly. Some people might say that Nick is a bit young for this important position, but that is another important reason that I support him. We need that youthful git-up-and-go to represent the far north in Madison.
There is an old saying in Douglas County. Even Republicans, if they want to get elected in Douglas County, have to sign up as Democrats in primary elections. I am most pleased that Nick Milroy didn't have to follow that path. As my old Uncle Charley would say, Nick is a true blue Democrat.
