"A first-class candidate"

Proud to have another letter to the editor in today's Racine Journal Times. Click here or read below:

Vote for Dzindzeleta

The heart of Racine is the 1st District, with its cluster of offices, restaurants, retail stores and residences.
Certainly, “Racine on the Lake” deserves effective representation in City Hall but, sadly, the incumbent and two others running for alderman in the Feb. 17 primary are lacking. The fourth candidate — Mercedes Dzindzeleta (pronounced Din-se-let-a) — is exceptionally qualified. She has the energy, common sense and intelligence to become the best alderman the First district has ever had.

You can find out a lot more about this civic-minded woman on her web site. Check out Some highlights:
As a private citizen, Mercedes has attended more than 250 City Council meetings, earning the respect of officials for her analysis and grasp of the issues. She brings wide life and work experiences as an environmental consultant, business owner and instructor at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside.

She knows about government regulations and the need for recycling and quality education and social service. She has participated in numerous workshops and seminars, including a Minnesota camp for progressive community leaders. Her special interests include the KRM rail, pedestrian safety, historic preservation and keeping the Downtown and its neighborhoods vital and alive.In my 30 years as a reporter and editor, I have interviewed many candidates for public office. Rarely did I see one like Mercedes who has such passion, dedication and love for the City of Racine. With so much at stake, we can’t afford to miss a chance to elect Mercedes, a first-class candidate.
Norman Monson, Racine
