After calling Alderman Dan Sutton on election eve to wish him well, my thoughts were with my family and friends who encouraged me to take on this venture.
My only regret is that in the most conservative area in the state there was no outward sign of interest in reducing the size of government. That was the theme of my campaign even if it meant i was seeking a post that i advocate being eliminated.
Other communities are now starting to move towards smaller government and my hope is that the City of Brookfield will do the same.
My optimism is that Senior Citizens, like myself, can take an active role in government by sharing their wisdom and experience, even with nagging health problems. Our family has a saying, "Steinbergs never quit", and so we went on with the campaign as soon as my Wife and I were released from the hospital, both of us at almost the same time.
This election has been stimulating and competitive which is a win for me.
I have to pick up my signs now , resume my legal work and find time for tennis and golf.
Thanks for the opportunity to be part of our great community once again.
