Dave Cieslewicz's cover story this week ("Can we save our lakes?") comes at an interesting time. It serves as a prelude to our annual Isthmus Green Day eco fair, but also arrives when spring rains are washing winter's leftovers into our lakes.
Cieslewicz formerly served as not just Madison's mayor but also executive director of 1000 Friends of Wisconsin, an environmental advocacy organization. He blogs for Isthmus as Citizen Dave and regularly contributes news articles and opinion columns.
He appeared on WKOW-TV's Wake Up Wisconsin and 27 News at 5 on Thursday to discuss the story, Madison's lakes and Isthmus Green Day. Videos of these appearances follow.
