Local readers should pay very close attention to the recent endorsement published by Journalist, Jessica McBride in the 07/19/2014 Freeman at page A5. With the August 12th primary just over three weeks away, I think it’s important for voters to take a close look at the candidates in this very important election. Jessica did a great job of outlining the key qualifications that make Severson and Perry the best choice to lead Waukesha in a consistent, efficient, and effective path of governing.
The right men for the jobs
I don’t always write endorsement columns. Sometimes, I just don’t want to wade into it. Sometimes, there are so many good candidates that it seems unnecessary. Sometimes, though, I think… Continue reading

Mayor Shawn Reilly endorses Aaron Perry for Wisconsin Assembly District 97 seat.
Downtown Waukesha – A small and eloquent group of supporters of Aaron Perry gathered along the RiverWalk in downtown Waukesha this afternoon to hear Mayor Reilly’s endorsement for Perry’s bid for the 97th Assembly seat.
Perry chose the spot by the Fox river just below the Love Bridge in Riverfront Plaza, “because the Fox River flows through Waukesha County and through the 97th Assembly District. The Fox River connects us all. It winds through District 97, just like the history and values of residents who live, work and play in the City and Town of Waukesha, Mukwonago and Genesee.

Anyone traveling along Waukesha’s south-side bypass has likely seen hundreds of ball players and spectators in attendance at Infinity Fields.
Saturday, May 31st was a three-day tournament weekend, and many in attendance wondered why the Flight For Life chopper was buzzing the ballpark area. Gate-workers were quite surprised when law enforcement officials approached them and stated that they were looking for two teenage girls.

WAUKESHA, WI – Saturday, May 31, 2014 turned out to be one of those days that any city would not want to be remembered for. In Waukesha this date is going to be remembered as the day that two 12-year-old teenage girls attempted to murder their 12-year-old “friend.” Apparently these three girls were friends, and two of the girls, Morgan E. Geyser and Anissa E. Weier stabbed their friend 19 times to pay homage to a fictional character who they believed was real.
Today the two girls were charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court as adults with first-degree attempted homicide. Bail was set at $500,000.00, and if convicted, the teens face up to 60 years in prison.
Had their… Continue reading
