I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
I am sure everyone has seen the race results by now. Not how I wanted it to finish, but it is what it is. If you missed it, here is the info from the Milwaukee Journal.
Mayor Ryan McCue and Municipal Judge John Zodrow both advanced to the April 6 run-off election, although both finished in second place in Tuesday's primaries.
In the mayoral race, retired banker Tony Day finished first with 1,297 votes, more than the other two candidates combined, according to unofficial returns.
Day will face McCue, a first-term incumbent, in the April 6 election.
McCue had 903 votes and Kevin Fech, director of operations for a transportation company, finished third with 130 votes.
Both Day and Fech were making their first runs for public office. They had said
Did I tell you about the rumor that Mayoral candidate Kevin Fech now that he is out of the running for Mayor will go after Alderman Joe Mikolajczak as a write in… Well it is 100% false. I called Mr. Fech and asked!
Mayor McCue was interviewed by Channel 12 on
In the interview, Mayor McCue stated that low voter turnout in spring primary elections as a reason he’s not concerned about finishing second to Tony Day in the primary.
Now that jogged a memory of mine. So let’s look back at the
Ryan McCue came to the

The big dollars don't worry Hohenfeldt, who touts a grass-roots philosophy for gathering support for a potential new term. His largest contribution, $250, came from his mother, according to campaign finance filings. He has put $1,900 of his money into the campaign since January, he said.
Voters will pick their next mayor April 3. The job will have a salary of $59,000 a year.
McCue also comes into the general election with the top vote total from the February primary, when Scott Mulqueen was eliminated.
"Seventy percent of the voters voted for change," said McCue, accounting for the combined numbers who voted against the incumbent.
Hohenfeldt acknowledges the challenger's advantage on that, too, but said he's not playing the underdog.
"The results of the primary have sparked the people who are supporting me to get out there and continue to spread the word to make sure I get re-elected," he said, noting that voter turnout was low in February.
McCue worked as a textbook sales representative before taking on the full-time job of county supervisor. He said he will leave that job before the term ends in 2008 if elected as
He said his time on the
McCue said he is prepared not only to "put an end to the Iceport" but also to control taxes, ensure safe neighborhoods, eliminate blight and hold absentee landlords accountable for their properties.
McCue wants to see a commuter rail line that will make a stop in Cudahy, with a business park filling the land. He said the market will decide what might be built there, but "I'm open to everything."
Well it looks like people want change again. This time from do nothing Mayor McCue!
He already knew voter turnout is low for the primary. Typically, between 20%-25% vote and this year it was in the middle with 23%.
Last election people were making a statement by not voting for the incumbent, but this time it is just the low voter turnout and nothing to worry about.
McCue is worried, I can guarantee that!
Oh yeah one more thing.
From the Milwaukee Journal again, this time 2010.
In response, McCue said he persuaded a developer to take over the financially plagued Library Square condominium project so it wouldn't be turned into rental housing and persuaded Pick 'N Save to not only keep its store in Cudahy, but also to renovate it.
So if I called up Pick 'N Save in
I just want to quickly draw your attention to my blog from
Even with a possible threat of big bad Wal-Mart, they were not leaving. Maybe Mayor McCue called them up before that, maybe Mayor McCue could give us a time line of one of the few accomplishments he touts he did during his 3 years as Mayor. Look back at his list above on how and what Mayor McCue did in
I am sorry Mayor McCue! I should now turn to be one of your supporters. After all, you have done such an awesome job as Mayor for the last three long years.
It is odd that Mayor McCue refers to me as some blogger now and not other names, which are not my last name of Hollenbeck, Richard!. I guess by just calling me some blogger he doesn’t want to let people know who it is. People know. City people read my blog as does the Mayor!
I guess I had more than one more thing. Well then, I just will add watch for an interview with Tony Day on Channel 4 with my friend
