West Bend Mayor Kraig Sadownikow made a political announcement on Monday. In a prepared release the mayor announced that he is endorsing Bob Gannon. In the statement, Mayor Sadownikow said, It is rare that I will endorse a candidate for political office, but this election is too important for me to stay quiet. West Bend is, by far, the largest community in the 58th district and for over 40 years has been occupied by a person with ties to our city. There is only one West Bend candidate in the field, Bob Gannon, and I’m pleased that this long time local business owner has stepped up and agreed to serve as our next State Representative.
