Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz is no stranger to the ride-along. He's done it with garbage collectors, city assessors and, of course, police officers. The Madison Police Department is often accomodating of journalists and government officials in this respect and the mayor has taken the opportunity several times in his tenure.
In fact, this Saturday, at just about the time thousands of Badger football fans spill out of Camp Randall Stadium after the Ohio State game, Mayor Dave will climb into a squad car in the MPD's Central District, which includes much of downtown Madison, and check out the scene.
Any guesses as to what Mayor Dave will come across on this ride-along with law enforcement? Any predictions for how many trips his squad car will take to Detox before the night is over?
Last week, Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk unveiled a plan to curb alcohol abuse. Might we see something similar from the mayor after he comes face to face with the city at its drunkest?
