APRIL 8, 2019
                        It's a New Day
Well the smoke has cleared from the sometimes hotly
debated spring elections and it seems that the voters —
with the exception of the Wisconsin Supreme Court
race — seemed to be voting for change. Two
incumbent mayors, Madison Mayor Paul Soglin and
Fitchburg Mayor Jason Gonzalez were both soundly
defeated.

While Gonzalez had some ethics issues that were
rehashed from about 10 years ago that pretty much
doomed his race, especially in the Me Too era, he had
also been severely criticized for his leadership style in
handling the funding of the Boys & Girls Club several
years ago. When you are perceived to be practicing bad
behavior, people don’t forget, especially when they are
the object of the bad behavior.

I think Paul Soglin pretty much doomed himself last
summer when he announced that he wasn’t running for
Madison mayor in 2019 because he was running for
Wisconsin governor at the time. He had actually praised
Satya Rhodes-Conway and in essence, endorsed her
candidacy. It was only after he lost the governor
primary that he later changed his mind and decided to
run for Madison mayor once again.

But it’s hard to backtrack on that type of sequence of
events. While running for mayor or any political office
has to involve some level of ego to protect oneself from
the slings and arrows of outrageous politics, people
also feel that they want a political leader with vision that
doesn’t necessarily involve their own personal interests.
