Shining the Spotlight on Two Local Businesses, and a Community Icon

I had a great time at tonight’s inaugural South Milwaukee Community & Business Association Spotlight Awards at the South Milwaukee Yacht Club.

It was a high-energy and fun event for an organization that is as energized as I’ve seen it in my time in politics. It’s exciting to see.

A strong chamber of commerce makes for a stronger South Milwaukee.

Donn Powers was the star of the show — the roast, actually — and for good reason. This business and community icon leaves quite a legacy as he heads into retirement, something we celebrated with a proclamation.

The two business award winners were also perfect choices: Sorce Martial Arts as Business of the Year, and Scrappy’s BBQ as Newcomer of the Year.

South Milwaukee’s past, present and future are built on a foundation of small businesses, and we celebrated that tonight. Congratulations to all of the winners!
