For Mayoral Candidates: Would you have put a Hooter's on Bluemound Road?

Open Letter to David Marcello and Steve Ponto:

Congratulations on your decisions to run for Brookfield Mayor. I have lived in Brookfield for 23 years.

Every time I pass by the new Hooter's (formerly the Bombay Bicycle Club), it just irritates me. Why would the Brookfield community even think of entertaining the idea of putting a "soft porn" facility here, much less.....right on Bluemound Road (not TOO obvious!) What kind of message does that send to anyone passing through Brookfield, much less our children and young adults?

Yes, I know that the parking lot is always full, but so was it when it was the BCC !

It is a downright embarrassment to our entire community, and....my question is: if you had been our Mayor, would you have allowed it to take up residence in the failed Mexican restaurant space? Couldn't we have held out for some other vendor to go there? With all of the restaurants springing up everywhere, surely there must have been one that would go in at that location !

I am not so naive as to not understand that "sex sells", but, just as communities have risen up to remove porn stores from their midst, I believe we should do the same for Hooter's. With the vision you have both outlined for Brookfield, and being family men, I would think you would both be against having the current Hooter's there, and would oppose any further such establishment from taking residence. I want to hear from you both, and I am sure that many other voters do, too.

This "restaurant" that exploits young women and sends a prurient message to men, should be shut down. Not only is the whole premise of its existence diametrically opposed to decent moral values, but it also reflects so badly on the entire Brookfield community, which, if elected Mayor, you would personify.

We in Brookfield want to hear from you !

Most Sincerely

You may think that hooters exploit workers but you are far from it. The people that work there are proud and don’t use “soft core porn” as a rationalization to be there. Did you know that Buffalo Wild Wings require their staff to wear short “booty” shorts at their jobs too? No complaints there. Also, what about Victoria Secret in the mall. Manikins are posed in underwear in the front display. That is more revealing than Hooters but no one is asking the mayor to think twice?

Ms. Nancy Jo should talk. Hooter's would never locate in crime-ridden stinking Nilwaukee. Hooter's is too high class for that. So, Ms.Nancy Jo, call your Italian cohort Balistreri and ask him about his strip joints in your Nilwaukee cesspool/
