Five questions for Donald Schwartz, Ken Gehl and Steve Taylor.
The three candidates for the open Milwaukee County supervisor seat agree on at least one thing - that the 9th District has been under-represented on the county board in the last few years. Donald Schwartz, Ken Gehl and Steve Taylor all want to change that and are trying to make the case about which one is best to fill the seat of Paul Cesarz, who decided not to run for re-election. The race is one of several on the ballot in Oak Creek in Tuesday's primary. The top two vote-getters will face off in the April 3 general election. The 9th supervisory district covers most of Oak Creek, most of Franklin and all of Hales Corners. A small portion of Oak Creek, on the north end of town, is part of the 8th District. There, incumbent Pat Jursik is …

Trio is running for seat held by Paul Cesarz.
With Paul Cesarz in his final months as Milwaukee County supervisor, a trio of residents have expressed interest in taking his place.

The district includes much of Oak Creek, Franklin and Hales Corners. (Click here for a map) Cesarz, the incumbent supervisor, filed a notification of noncandidacy on Friday.

He has been on the board since 2002.
Milwaukee County Supervisor Paul Cesarz will not seek re-election in April. Cesarz, who represents the majority of Oak Creek residents on the County Board, was first elected in a special election in June of 2002 and re-elected in 2004 and 2008. But recently, he has come under fire from constituents, other government officials and media outlets for unresponsiveness. Candidates who have filed to run for his seat have said the lack of communication was one of the biggest factors in their decision to enter the race. Cesarz filed a notification of noncandidacy late last week. He couldn't be reached for comment Tuesday afternoon. Look for more Patch coverage on the county supervisor race Wednesday.

County supervisor invited to make his voice heard on Patch.
To: Milwaukee County Supervisor Paul Cesarz From: Oak Creek Patch Editor Mark Schaaf Re: Oak Creek Patch *** Dear Supervisor Cesarz: I can't imagine that it was a great few days for you after the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel published a piece that quoted numerous people complaining about your tenure - and specifically, your communication skills - as county supervisor. Then, a fellow county board member called for a referendum on supervisors having full-time employment outside their government duties, specifically naming you in a press release as the reason why. So let me take this opportunity to invite you to prove your critics wrong and communicate directly with your constiuents here on Oak Creek Patch. For all I know, this could be the …

Same people would represent city on Milwaukee County Board under approved plan.
The controversial Milwaukee County redistricting plan, approved Thursday by the Board of Supervisors, would have little impact on Oak Creek. The bulk of the city would continue to be represented by Paul Cesarz. Supervisor Pat Jursik would still represent a small portion of Oak Creek along Highway 32 and just west of South Milwaukee. County supervisors approved the plan on a 13-6 vote. Cesarz and Jursik voted against the proposal. The plan would downsize the county board by one, to 18 members, and eliminate the district of Supervisor Joseph Rice. It still needs the signature of County Executive Chris Abele, who has not said whether he will veto it. The proposal has come under fire from many suburban leaders, including Oak Creek Mayor Dick …
