Let’s be clear – Dave Cieslewic would still be the 997th “Friend of Wisconsin” if not for Kathleen Falk. It was Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk who would introduce Cieslewic to Madison voters and give him the support needed to become Mayor of Madison. Some scratched their heads at Cieslewic’s snub of Falk and “nose up the ass” support for Barrett in the recall primary. Others – me included – shrugged our collective shoulders as in “I’m not surprised.” Mayor Dave or Citizen Dave or whatever the hell he’s calling himself these days rolled the dice, went with the one he thought gave him the best shot at a position in a gubanatorial administration and basically said to hell with loyalty.
That tells me everything I need to know about Dave Cieslewic who really should be taken as nothing more than a nice guy who doesn’t look goofy in bike helmut.
