Congresswoman Gwen Moore Statement on 15th Milwaukee Aldermanic District:

“With the departure of Willie Hines, after his long and distinguished service, the voters in the 15th Aldermanic District have an opportunity to select a new alderman.

“With so many qualified candidates, from former county supervisor Eyon Biddle Sr. to current county supervisor Russell Stamper II, I am not making an endorsement in this race.

“It is my hope that the individual succeeding Willie Hines serves the 15th district with honor. I wish all candidates the best of luck and look forward to working with the newly elected alderman.

  • How about Native American women?
  • And what about female college students?
  • What about minors used in the domestic sex trade?

These are just five of the big questions being batted around Capitol Hill these days, as the inexplicably contentious battle over the Violence Against Women Act wears on.
