Lasee's fresh idea
A while back State Senator Alan Lasee (R-De Pere) announced he is running for Brown County Executive. He had two statements that caught my eye.
One was this:
Lasee says he was tired of making the commute to Madison...
You know, I think the voters of the 1st Senate District might have been interested in that statement about two months ago. But perhaps he only became sick of the drive once he learned he was going to have to move to smaller office because his party lost control of the senate.
The other statement was this one:
Lasee believes he brings a fresh, outside prospective and that may be why people will vote for him.Let's be honest here Mr. Lasee. There is nothing fresh about a politician that has held office since the year I was born. (I turned thirty-five this year in case you don't want to look up his political history.)
But elections are about selling yourself so perhaps Senator Lasee can convince voters that he is a fresh face on the political scene. Justin Timberlake recently convinced Jessica McBride that he is a true artist instead of just being a pop star, so I guess people can sell anything.
