I'm a 25 year resident of the Town of Bristol and a lifelong resident of northern Dane County. I have a farming background and am a volunteer mentor to veterans pursuing farm vocations. I believe in transparency and honesty. This is other people's money and quality of life. It's incumbent upon all elected officials to MUST treat taxpayer resources with honor and respect. Bristol is at a critical juncture with its identity. The current violence occurring in North Bristol is wholly inappropriate. Effective corrective actions are long overdue.
