Note that Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz had breakfast with Ald. Larry Palm this morning, but his office isn't saying where. Hmmm....
I'm told people like bullet points in posts like this, so here goes:
- The mayor is meeting on Monday to discuss high-speed rail. Allow me to state for the record that a high-speed rail line connecting Madison to Chicago, Milwaukee and Minneapolis would be the best thing this state has done since it got out of the dog track business.
- The mayor is serving as a "Celebrity Server" at Lapham Elementary's holiday luncheon on Monday. No offense, but the biggest celebrity at my elementary school was Orvis, the janitor. No one can compete with that floor buffing machine that looks like a Zamboni.
- Julie Genovese is on the schedule for Friday. She's running for Dane County's Branch 13, which Judge Michael Nowakowski is leaving.
- UW-Madison Chancellor Biddy Martin is having her holiday party at the Mechanical Engineering Building? That will either be the best or worst holiday party ever, depending on how much access party goers have to the labs.
- Al Schumacher will meet with the mayor on Friday, just after we get our first major winter storm of the season. Better make sure the mayor's commute goes smoothly that morning, Al.
