Local labor movement struggles for job creation.

I’m mightily impressed by how my hometown has grown culturally in the 20 years since I’ve been gone, although the jazz scene really suffers in terms of supportive venues and especially press. But this town still has a long ways to go, politically and socially. A friend of mine, who is a sociologist, alerted me to the urgency of an upcoming election in which Eyon Biddle and Jose Perez are challenging long-time Common Council incumbents. I’m in no position to make an informed endorsement but moveon.org is backing them. I will refer you to this in-depth article on the germane issues, by my former Milwaukee Journal editor Dominique Paul Noth: http://www.milwaukeelabor.org/in_the_news/article.cfm?n_id=00238
