Lack of Activity Seen in Local Milwaukee Elections

by

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - There’s a good chance that either the Milwaukee mayor’s office or the county executive’s office will be vacant after the November elections.

But you wouldn’t know it, judging by the lack of activity by possible candidates. There’s hardly been any talk about possible replacements for Mayor Tom Barrett or County Executive Scott Walker.

Barrett is the Democrats’ main candidate for Wisconsin governor this fall – and state Republicans endorsed Walker over the other major GOP candidate, former Congressman Mark Neumann.

The Journal Sentinel says most Milwaukee city and county leaders raised little or no campaign during the first half of the year in a bid to replace either Barrett or Walker.

Common Council president Willie Hines says he’ll run for mayor if the job opens up. Other potential candidates for that post include Aldermen Tony Zielinski and Michael Murphy.

Possible hopefuls for county executive include State Assembly Republican Jeff Stone of Greenfield, County Clerk Joe Czarnezki, and County Treasurer Dan Diliberti. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is a possibility for either mayor or county executive.
