To the editor,   These days it seems that political leaders who are dedicated to public service instead of partisan gamesmanship are in short supply.  Those of us who live in Southwestern Dane County have been fortunate to have one such leader, Pat Downing, represent us on the County Board. Pat has...
To the editor,   District 30 Supervisor Pat Downing has stated that “The most important duty we have is to provide for the health, safety and general well-being of our constituents.”   I believe Pat is the best candidate fulfill this duty, for the residents of District 30.  Pat took this duty very...
Dear editor,   I encourage Mount Horeb citizens to re-elect Pat Downing as County Board District 30 Supervisor.  Pat has worked hard for many years to well-represent Mount Horeb interests at the County level. I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate and communicate with Pat on his opposition to the...

Dear editor,   I’d like to send warmest thanks to the Mount Horeb Community for coming out on a cold winter morning to support the Rotary Super Brunch. After two years of pandemic lockdowns, we weren’t sure what to expect, and your enthusiasm for this community tradition was wonderful to see. A...
