It'll Be Barrett and Donovan Vying For Milwaukee Mayor on April 5

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett finished first in Tuesday's spring Primary, followed by Alderman Bob Donovan. So the two will face off in April's General Election for a four-year term as mayor.

During the campaign so far, Barrett has touted accomplishments of his three terms as mayor, including in terms of development and re-development projects. Donovan has countered by pointing to the city's high homicide rate in 2015 and blasting the mayor's plan to build a streetcar line downtown, saying the priorities are wrong.

WUWM's Marti Mikkelson attended Ald. Bob Donovan's primary night gathering and asked people what kind of changes they'd like to see a new mayor make.
