Of primary focus, Michalski announced that Gorman’s will be bringing a full grocery store to the Uptown Neighborhood.

Not only will this be coming to Uptown, but it will be right on 22nd Avenue, he said.

The news, given at a ribbon-cutting for Grace Welcome Center’s new walk-in cooler, drew applause. Uptown has been lacking a grocery store since the old Pick ‘n Save closed its doors a few years ago.

Alderperson Kangas critical of Sheskey situation

Kangas also drew attention for stating that Rusten Sheskey should be “given a permanent desk job.”

Sheskey is the Kenosha Police Department officer who shot Jacob Blake seven times in August 2020. As a result, Kenosha experienced two nights of riots, causing millions in damages.

Kangas’ statement follows the expressions of concern and frustration heard from the community following Sheskey’s return to work
