Barring a big breaking news event, I’ll be taking a few days off from blogging to celebrate Thanksgiving.
Please have a happy holiday. I hope you, too, can spend it surrounded by family, friends, great food, and football.
Indeed, if you plan to head out to stores this weekend — and I’m assuming many of you will — please consider shopping local.
There are a growing number of South Milwaukee merchants that would love to earn your business. Keep them in mind as you head out on Black Friday (or even Thursday night), or Small Business Saturday.
I created a Facebook page to tell some of their stories. And, in early December, look for my annual “12 Days” series on the blog highlighting some unique local shopping opportunities. Also, please post your favorites in the comments section.
Thanks for your continued support … of this blog, of our city, and of the work we’re doing to move South Milwaukee forward. I love being the mayor of this city, and am thankful every day for the opportunity to serve.
