Denise Duranczyk's Letter to the Editor, Stoughton Courier Hub

I greatly appreciate Denise's letter of support in this week's Stoughton Courier Hub.

Sheila Plotkin Facebook Post in Support

I am simply pasting Sheila's post and my response as I highly respect Sheila and the award-winning work she has done for clean, ethical government.

Patrick Miles shared Sheila Plotkin's post.
It was 2004, I think, that Sheila Plotkin & I bonded over our value of clean, open government. That spring of 2004 I was trying to get a resolution passed denouncing anonymous, dishonest campaigning that had occurred. Sheila & others came and spoke loudly & eloquently in support of my resolution. It is, as they say, the start of a beautiful friendship and I'm honored to call her a good friend. Sheila has actively worked for clean, open gov't ever since. See her award winning work at and you will see why I am touched and honored by her kind words of support in her post below.

Patrick Miles is my friend. He is also my ideal public servant and always has been. Patrick is smart. He studies issues from the inside out, and then he consults with stakeholders to determine common ground. Patrick reaches out to those who disagree with him and brings them to the table. Patrick Miles is all about collaboration, not confrontation. He's shared his skill set in this piece, but I wanted you to know the person I know and trust. Dane County will be fortunate to have Patrick Miles as its treasurer. Not only will the job be well done, but every facet of it will be graced by a man who deeply respects the people he serves. I voted for Patrick Miles for Dane County Treasurer. I urge you to vote for him too.
