Our 19th Year (Already?)

Before I get reminiscing aboiut 18 years of publishing completed, I want to give thanks to our two Dane County Executive candidates, Dana Pellebon and Wesley Sparkman, who grace our front cover. I really appreciate their strong character that allowed them to appear on the cover together. After all, they are competitors for the same position. I wanted to feature them both on the cover to show how far the African American community has come to have two of its own competing for one of the highest responsibility positions in our area.

It is wonderful to see two strong candidates vying for the position, made possible by the pending retirement of Dane County Executive Joe Parisi. This truly should be a source of pride for not only Dane County’s African American community, but the Dane County community as a whole. While some parts of Wisconsin are trending away from Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, it makes me proud of our community to see them competing unhindered for this top community position. And it makes me doubly proud to see these two well-qualified individuals run. Dane County is headed in the right direction.
