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.

Tracey Joubert, the South African chief financial officer of MillerCoors, will never forget the moment when President Nelson Mandela walked onto the Johannesburg pitch at the final game of the 1995 Rugby World Cup.
Dressed in the jersey of the Springboks, South Africa's traditionally all-white rugby team — in the year after the fall of apartheid — the former political prisoner inspired a fractured nation, black and white, to seek a new, united future.

"A lot of people realized then that we can live together and we can win together," said Joubert, who mourned Thursday the passing of the man she called the "father of a new South Africa."

"He was just an amazing human being," Joubert said. "I'm absolutely devastated."

Mandela died Thursday at the age of 95 after months of ill health. He was mourned in Wisconsin and around the world by countrymen and admirers.

The service will be held Tuesday in Johannesburg at a soccer stadium that can hold roughly 95,000 people.

A government aircraft carrying 22 members of the House and one U.S. senator departed from Andrews Air Force Base on Monday morning, ahead of Air Force One, which is carrying President and Michelle Obama, former president George W. Bush and Laura Bush and former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton, according to the White House.
