Ald. Michael D'Amato announced he will not seek re-election to his east side aldermanic seat and political junkies wonder:
Why, Michael, why?
And then political junkies think:
Well, hell, it will be a great race.
The candidates already are lining up and include D'Amato aide Sam McGovern-Rowen, Sura Faraj, Patrick Flaherty, Nicholas Kovac and Andrew Twist. Kovac and Faraj previously planned a joint campaign to challenge D'Amato, according to MilwaukeeWorld.com.
Meanwhile, former Ald. Fred Gordon has filed to run for Ald. Michael McGee's seat in the 6th District.
