Endorsements and Interviews


Zachary Henek District 10 Alder Endorsement

Wisconsin State Journal: DISTRICT 10

Mara Eisch’s background in nursing, including teaching at a medical college, will help inform City Council discussions during the pandemic. She also cites public safety as a top issue. She wants to support police as well as alternative responses to mental health crises. She would bring more attention to collecting and using data when the city makes big decisions. Madison can’t “legislate its way out of racial and economic disparities,” she says. But the city can’t ignore inequities, either, and she wants to engage in “uncomfortable” conversations to find solutions. Eisch wants to encourage more home ownership in her district on the West and Southwest sides and across the city. Her opponent for this open seat, Yannette Figueroa Cole, has a medical background, too, and is similarly ready to serve. We like her attention to homelessness. But Eisch offers more specifics about what she wants to get done.
