As the New Year Unfolds, more Potential Candidates are Bound to Announce their Intentions.
It is not known yet if current Madison Councilmember At-Large Laura Hodges will run again for her position, but this week, current Madison City Councilman for District 2, David Alcorn, has announced he will run for City Council At-Large.
The Other At-Large Councilman, Dan Dattilo will run again for his same position.
According to Alcorn’s press release, “After serving the past three years as City Councilman for District 2, Alcorn feels a city-wide seat would be the next appropriate step, allowing him to continue to serve the people of Madison.
While it has been an honor to serve the Second District, a city-wide seat would allow me to represent both the hilltop and the downtown to the fullest capacity.
I look forward to branching out to other areas of the City to hear their thoughts about how Madison can continue to grow and prosper.”
For the past three years Alcorn has worked to pass an ethics ordinance for elected officials, block wasteful spending and promote economic development through the passage of the Riverfront District.
“I worked alongside Councilwoman Rampy to develop a Riverfront District for downtown Madison in order to strengthen existing restaurants and promote new restaurants, creating a more welcoming environment for tourism, while increasing choices for local residents.”
In the next four years Alcorn hopes to focus on the infrastructure of Madison and remedy inefficiencies while continuing to promote quality of life amenities and common-sense policies to grow Madison into the perfect place to live, work, play and do business.
“While Madison has many strengths, we can’t turn a ‘blind eye’ to issues that plague our community such as homelessness, addiction, drug abuse, child abuse and neglect and suicide.
We must work together to employ common sense initiatives to combat these issues.”
