Giant Douche vs. Turd Sandwich

You think your political choices are bad?  Check this out:

Laura Manriquez, a nurse with years of community involvement, is making a second attempt at this seat. Manriquez said she’s running because “I know I can lead our community forward.”

Her top priorities are economic growth, education and health care. She said she’d press for local economic development such as light rail and the emergence of Milwaukee as a freshwater hub. She also supports transitioning local industries into the green economy.

She just stopped by my house and seemed like a nice lady.  Still, not exactly my cup o tea.

Angel Sanchez represented the city’s South Side in the Milwaukee Common Council from 2000 to 2004. He owns a home-improvement business and rental properties and has worked as a substitute teacher in the Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS).

Sanchez said his three signature issues are education, jobs and health care. He said his experience in MPS has helped him to understand the struggles of teachers and families. To curb classroom disruptions and ease teachers’ workloads, Sanchez would like to change the school day so that it starts at 7:30 a.m. and ends at noon.

Yay, a teacher.  I'm sure he'll be tough on wasteful spending. 

So, you can tell my enthusiasm will be limited.  Except, well, I know who has to lose:
JoCasta Zamarripa: Fighting for the District’s Fair Share

JoCasta Zamarripa is a community outreach coordinator for Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, and has worked for Equality Wisconsin, 9to5, the Southside Organizing Committee and Fair Wisconsin. Zamarripa said she is letting the voters define her signature issues.

So, after reviewing the rest of it, I'd actually have to support Ms. Manriquez.  But boy, oh boy, do I not have any good options.  Of course, in my district, I don't have any good choices until I get to statewide elections. 

Oh, well.  Its the price you pay to live in the city.
