To all residents of Milwaukee County District 13:
My name is Dan Herro and I have decided to run for the District 13 seat on the Milwaukee Board of County Supervisors for the term beginning in April 2020. My decision came as I was driving through District 13 and I noticed the many abandoned houses and businesses. I am not proud of the Estabrook Trail Ghost Train that crosses over Capitol Drive in Shorewood on a nightly basis for spectators to enjoy. The discontinued use of the rail system for industrial purposes and celebration of its recreational purposes are not celebrations to me. This was the bridge used to transport goods manufactured in District 13 across our state and nation. This bridge carried supplies for the WITI radio tower, the largest man-made structure in the world at the time. This bridge carried the casings for Fat Man and Little Boy from Milwaukee’s own A.O. Smith Corporation, critical items in Japan’s surrender in World War II. This bridge was the pride and joy of District 13 and it meant open businesses, exported goods, and happy homes.
My platform is the will of the residents of District 13. I am here to serve you, as I have been serving the Milwaukee community as a Milwaukee Public Schools teacher since 2008. I look forward to our conversations on your doorsteps and in your homes when I begin the nomination papers and canvassing process in Fall 2019. I will be the voice of your concerns at the Milwaukee County level and my sole focus will be resolving your concerns and making sure your hard-earned tax dollars are represented in county services that directly impact District 13. I look forward to listening to and taking action on your concerns. This is the true purpose and process of Democracy that has been missing in our beautiful county for a long time. I look forward to meeting you at your door!
