"Racine Alderman Edward Diehl announced Wednesday that he is running for mayor against incumbent Mayor John Dickert.
“'I am not from Racine, not Wisconsin,
not even the Midwest but my wife and I have adopted Racine as our home.
Now I am asking the taxpayers of the city of Racine to adopt me as the
next Mayor of Racine,' he told Racine County Eye.

and emails over the last four or five months and it has been humbling

"Diehl says he will be a servant-leader if elected, which means he
plans on connecting with as many facets of the community as possible and
leading 'through service and being an example.'”
