If you know Don Schwartz, you probably met him at a community service event. Our introduction was over 20 years ago at a PTO fundraiser for Hales Corners Elementary School. Since then his volunteer work has grown to include projects for St. Mary’s, the Hales Corners Historical Society, and the Whitnall Park Rotary Club. When Don sees a need he jumps in to fill it. When our local pool was threatened with closing in 2003, Don founded the Friends of Hales Corners Park & Pool and he has worked tirelessly since then to keep it operating – despite the constant cutbacks in Milwaukee County’s Park system. He also founded the Hales Corners Chamber of Commerce and served as its president for eight years. Don never misses an opportunity to promote local businesses either by email or word of mouth. Additionally, he played a vital role in the building of our Veterans Memorial.
Don was elected a Village Trustee 16 year ago. He understands the challenging issues our community faces and encourages input from all stakeholders to develop workable solutions. Don is both enthusiastic and committed to Hales Corners. He not only gives unselfishly of his time and expertise; he excels at motivating other community members to so the same. I hope you join me in voting for his reelection.
