Mayor Chiavatero has requested
an affidavit from a Real Estate professional to prove that trails

My NOW blog, unlike New Berlin Citizens for Responsible Government’s (NBCRG), conveys a person’s viewpoint (mine)---not a political action committee’s. And unlike NBCRG, I’ve never used my blog to endorse candidates for local public offices.
Ralph Heun’s (New Berlin Citizens for Responsible Government) March 7 diatribe was so full of malarkey, it would take multiple blog entries to respond to all of it.
The Eisenhower Middle School Student Council & Miss Whitty are proud to announce their “FOR DANIELLE & COMPANY” project.
The New Berlin Citizens for Responsible Government (NBCRG) has invited all candidates for public office to our meetings for many years, to make a presentation on what the candidates vision is for the various offices.
