Link to March 13 Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel article, "Library project is key topic in Hartford mayor's race".
In this corner, we have Tim Michalak, a member of the Hartford Common Council, wants a referendum. He's a list guy: want list, wish list, need list. He thinks the 35,000-square-foot, $10 million project sh
ould be privately funded. He made a $1,000 contribution to the building fund. Michalak has been endorsed by the Hartford Area Taxpayers Association (HATA).
And in this corner, we have Joe Dautermann, a former alderperson. He supports the council's plan to move forward with plans to borrow $4,000,000 for the library project. "The project is overdue," he says. (Have no idea if the pun was intended.) Current mayor Scott Henke and 3 former mayors have endorsed Dautermann.
Election day is April 6.
Five Hartford (Wisconsin) mayoral candidates differ on library project. (1/25/2010)
