It is no accident that we are seeing a resurgence of cooperatives. As a business attorney, I’m fascinated with how they empower individuals and communities to take control of their world. As a community member, I believe that Outpost presents the most rational response to an uncertain food supply and uncertain times. It does so by building community, supporting local farmers, and providing good-paying jobs to local workers. I want to be a part of that. I want to give back to my community, but I also want to learn from others who are doing it right.
 
 
While I was born in Chicago, and spent my childhood in Southeast Asia, I’ve lived in Wisconsin since high school. My early years were spent on the isthmus in Madison, just a few blocks away from the Willy Street Co-op. It’s no accident that I’ve settled into Bay View, just a few blocks away from Outpost. This is where I belong, where I feel most satisfied, and where I plan to spend the rest of my life. There’s a genuine sense of community in my neighborhood of Bay View, and in Milwaukee generally. It’s a big city, but also a small town. It’s a place where I know I can make a difference, and I like that. It feels like home. I’ve worked and gone to school in Milwaukee since 1995, and finally moved here ten years later. But in some ways, it feels more like home than any other place I’ve lived. That’s why I ran for alderman in 2012, and that’s why I want to work to continue to make a difference.

I question how someone who has recently run in a political race in the Bay View area will remain fair and hear both sides to any issue. Posted by: 4health | October 12 at 7:56 AM
As for what we propose, all sinks toward pair categories: paper from dissertation editing services money plus proofreading/editing. We are more particularly haughty of our disclosure composition lift, so we lates separate that toward a third type. Posted by: john | November 27 at 2:21 AM
