I know and respect Nik Kovac. He is a good friend and a true pro

I know and respect Nik Kovac. He is a good friend and a true progressive.

As a fair and insightful journalist, Nik conducted one of the last
in-depth interviews with former mayor Frank Zeidler.

As a community activist, Nik has participated with me and other
progressive leaders in our monthly Community Brainstorming sessions.
Nik also joined me in marching over the Groppi Bridge as part of our
commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the civil rights struggle
here in Milwaukee.

A few weeks ago, Nik asked me if he could refer to me as one of his
heroes in his campaign literature. I was honored by the request. I
have seen the brochure in which Nik uses my name and picure. I
approve.

I am flattered that Nik thought my name and picture would be helpful
to his campaign. Because of my position as chair of the Political
Action Committee of Community Brainstorming I did not think it would
be appropriate for me to issue a formal endorsement. However, I am
pleased to give Nik as much support as possible.
