Ousted Muskego alderwoman calls for community healing

April 11, 2012

In a farewell to the Muskego Common Council on Tuesday night, Alderwoman Tracy Snead called for healing in the community after an unprecedented amount of negativity engulfed all three aldermanic races leading up to last week's election.

That negativity came not necessarily from the candidates themselves but from groups supporting various candidates. The underlying issue was the controversial lake park proposal that brought tempers on both sides to the boiling point.

"In 16 years, I've never seen Muskego the way it is now. It's very disheartening," said Snead, who lost in her bid for re-electionn.

"I want to encourage people to play fair," she said. "We can disagree, but we can do it with integrity and civility. … This is a great place to live and I'd like to see it kind of get back to that. Please, please please, let's pull it together."
