Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

I Am Sorry To See Andy Smith Go


This may surprise you a bit, but I am truly sorry to see Andy Smith go. Although he sometimes put the "ick" in public relations*, I was glad he was the Director of Communications for Elmbrook.

Think about it. Why would I want a champion schmooze-master in that role? You know, someone who could smooth the waters or remove all ire or fear from an agitated parent or taxpayer when maybe those emotions were warranted?

Seriously, at times Andy could be helpful and for that I am thankful. In person he was always polite and cordial.

I do wish him well in his future role. 


*That was a line from the Pixar movie, Monsters Inc. Mike said it about Roz the "woman" who always nagged at Mike, Did you file your paperwork?
