"I'm certainly a Kohlenberg supporter,so you got me there. I just thought he did a good job as mayor."

Did a good job as mayor! He fought with the city council and the aldermen. He got so pissed at them that they wouldn't let him post a opinion piece on the city's website that he launched his own website (www.oconomowocfreepress.com-Has been taken ofline since gary announced his candidacy) which he used as a platform to bash other city officials. He certainly wasn't much of a uniter in oconomowoc (Which is evident in the fact that two oconomowc alderpersons have endorsed bryan over their own mayor).

PS: Anyone who was ever able to actually read gary's oconomowoc free press website would agree that gary is unfit for office.

Well,

I actually live in Oconomowoc, so perhaps I have a better vantage point then you. Sometimes alderpersons like the mayor and sometimes not, that's just the way city politics work. There were a lot of people who were mad when he defeated Mr. Foti.

Gary did a good job, he lowered taxes and brought free music to city beach. I am especially appreciative of the latter since there really isn't much to do here in Oconomowoc and a free concert is a nice place to take a date. :)

But seriously, no need to get all riled up. After all, we are all on the anti-Sensenbrenner team.

Have you read the oconomowoc free press rant? seriously- I have a copy, give me a few days to find it and i'll post some of the scaryer things he says in it on this board.

PS: 1414-are you gary?

"PS: 1414-are you gary?"

Obviously not. I'm sure Gary has better things to do than argue with you...I on the other hand...:).

I think he did a good job as mayor and I stand by that. I know that he did not get along with some members of the common council, sometimes that's just the way it works. I'm sure there are people that Mr. Kennedy doesn't get along with either.

So I would just like to repeat my previous two statements that I actually lived in Oconomowoc when Gary was mayor and getting all riled up about this is pointless since it only helps Sensenbrenner in the long run.

I agree with you and i'm sorry for arguing. Sensenbrenner is the the ennemy. Although i don't think gary has better things to do (I know for a fact he frequents other online sites like this) I'll just stop with the pointlessness and count on the voters to choose the right man on SEPTEMBER 14th and NOVEMBER 2nd.

PS:I think you get the impression that i live in MN and although that is where I am originally from i have speant quite a bit of time in WI so stop bashing me for not living in O-town (Oconomowoc)

I'm not bashing on you or at least I didn't mean to.

But I'll stop it as long as you don't call Oconomowoc "O-Town" as we don't want to be associated with that awful boy-band. We call this place "Ocon" for short 'round here (see my email address).

Why did anyone here buy into the Kohlenberg hype?

Because of the moustache.
