I have lived in the Falls since 1968. My great-great grandfather was one of the village founders. I have served the community in multiple ways: Firefighter, various boards and commissions and for many years was president of the Falls Cable Access Corp. Currently I own, and am active in, a restaurant equipment manufacturing company.
This morning, at breakfast, my wife asked me "what is missing from news reports these days"?
I had no answer except to utter Jackie Gleason's "humma humma humma...".
She then noted that she has missed news reports about the President's approval ratings.
Across the country, in every election poll, an attempt is made to try determine the winner in advance of the actual election. The pollsters always ask questions, sort answers, and then publish their results. They often cite percentages of for, against, and undecided for the various candidates and issues.
The Menomonee Falls race for Village Board President is now one of those polls. In this query, I'm asking those who have not made a choice for the Board President to speak up.
A year or so ago I was in the market for a new vehicle.
I searched the internet, newspaper ads, and showrooms - finally settling in on a list of features that I really wanted.
It had taken a lot of time. I carefully selected my dream car. It would be an SUV, hybrid, with extreme seating comfort. My aging, bony behind demanded it. Overpowered engines took second place.
