Soglin announces re-election campaign

Madison Mayor Paul Soglin, surrounded by friends and family, announced his re-election bid for April's mayoral race at the Warner Park Community and Recreation Center Tuesday.

Soglin envisioned Madison grounded in social justice and equity, highlighting a special focus regarding the economy with another four years of leadership.

He reaffirmed his dedication to the people of Madison with a stronger economy based on limiting debt and increasing lasting jobs for adults. Soglin also plans to continue the city’s commitment to community development through neighborhood development, improved transportation and educational cooperation.

“Together, we have made progress toward our very simple but eloquent vision - to make Madison a safe and healthy place for every individual and family to live, play, work and learn,” Soglin said.

With experience in stabilizing debt and minimizing future spending, the candidate emphasized his credibility for resolving Madison's current economic conditions. Soglin argued that his previous elections have taught him the required lessons necessary for success.

His economic aspirations were coupled with a desire for community improvement in the name of social justice. Detailing his immediate attention to a previously less popular issue, Soglin stated his goals with neighborhood development for the future, juxtaposing it with past efforts such as the 2011 Neighborhood Resource Teams.

The mayor recognized the disparity between reality and what he envisions for the city.

“There is a disconnect between the promise of this city and the reality you experience,” Soglin said.  

Soglin will be facing off against challengers Ald. Scott Resnick, District 8, former alder Bridget Maniaci, former Dane County supervisor Richard Brown and UW-Madison graduate Christopher Daly.
