Milwaukee leaders remember their colleague Joe Dudzik

City leaders are remembering Ald. Joe Dudzik today as a proud family man and one who fought for his constituents. Dudzik died after hitting construction barricades while on his motorcycle Thursday night on the city’s southwest side. On Friday Alderman Jim Bohl fought back tears.

“I was proud to have alderman dudzik as a colleague, but I was more proud to have him as a very close friend,” Bohl says.

Dudzik has represented the 11th district since 2002. Before that he worked for the department of public works for more than 20 years. He leaves behind his wife Lynn and two children.
