RECORD OF LEADERSHIP
Ed is running for the purpose of representing the entire village, and balancing its needs against its wants. He believes there are four principles to sound government at the local level, and he's DONE IT.
CONTINUED LOW TAXES
Despite a flat levy this year, and a virtually flat levy the year before our village managed to pay its bills and still end the year with a surplus. The second in a row. Our recently-retired administrator helped our village stay within our means, as the board pursued new and exciting opportunities on the horizon. Ed looks forward to holding the line in the years to come.
Ed believes our village has resources worth protecting, and others worth leveraging for good, responsible growth. He wants to remain your trustee, because, he believes the Village Board needs some fresh blood and forward-thinking leadership that brings more citizens into the affairs of the village, creating an environment that encourages better companies and families to move here and improve our way of life.
This week, I’ve met dozens of new folks as I have continued hitting doors in our community. I started last Fall, and there’s always someone new to meet!

He has also served as chair of the Personnel Committee, overseeing all aspects related to employees, hiring, administrative conditions, and contracts.

I love history. Every time I have a relationship with a community, I research it’s roots. Growing up in Bay View, WI as a child, I learned all about it’s history as a separate town, and eventually an annexed ward of Milwaukee. I learned about the farming history of Oak Creek when I lived there […]
With nearly 25,000 residents, Caledonia is a recently-incorporated village that shares both dense residential- and spacious farm-land with long spans of untouched riversides and a park system that rivals some larger cities. When in Caledonia, you are never more than 5 minutes from some space to scope a bike trail, play some baseball, go for […]
A national leader once said “All politics is local.” The true power behind our culture and way of life is our local government, and I believe that to my core. No president, congress, governor or state legislature can match the power of neighbors making the most practical of all decisions on a weekly, or even […]
No candidate should ever base their civic commitment upon the narrow viewpoint of one group or another. Whether it be transportation issues, development plans, union-negotiations or civil services, people usually fall fairly evenly on both sides of the issues. I am running for the purpose of representing the entire village, and balancing its needs against […]
