I was born and raised here. I was born in Riverwest, and my parents worked hard to move us to Shorewood and raise us away from the crime we were experiencing there at that time.
I moved to NY for a few years, but I decided to move back because I missed my family and my hometown. I was considering moving to a new city again, but once I heard that we were building a new arena and developing the downtown area, I knew that the city was finally beginning to move in a direction that I wanted to be a part of.
Anywhere by the lake.
I’m Italian so I have to go with Festa Italiana!
I wanted to be a part of an organization that is helping to make our community a better place.
I would have to pick mini-bowling at Koz’s! I don’t think I would have ever tried that otherwise and it was a creative way to get donations and get to know fellow Echelonians.
Segregation and racism is my biggest concern for our city. I think the first thing that we can do is recognize that and get the rest of our state to recognize it also.
