Anita Weier was sworn in April 19th as District 18 alder on the Madison City Council.

Though I was re-elected to the Madison City Council in 2013 without opposition, I have decided not to run for a third term. It is time to let someone else have a chance to represent this wonderful district on the Northside.

I deeply appreciate the numerous thank you messages I have received for my service. I also am very grateful for meeting so many fine people over my four years in office.

Challenges have been many, but so have satisfactions when I accomplish something, such as: working to gain approval of the UW Credit Union branch on Northport Drive; helping establish a community garden at Vera Court; helping Mirus Partners acquire and start to rehab The Woodlands apartment complex; getting Wheeler Road resurfaced between Sherman and CV; and halting construction of a 96,000-square-foot warehouse next to Troy Gardens on a residential street.

I will continue to work for the Northside in some way. I also plan to return to writing in some way. I enjoyed reporting and editing during my for 30 years as a journalist, and I have had little time to write in recent years.

Until April 21, I will continue to represent District 18 on the City Council. I can be reached at (608) 320-5820 or at district18@cityof
