Barrett plans to run for re-election

Back in his city office after losing the guv's race, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said today he plans to run for re-election to his post.

Barrett said he loves the job and intends to seek another four-year term in the spring of 2012.

"I certainly intend to," Barrett said about whether he'd run for mayor again. "I love this job."

Barrett said he ran for governor because he was concerned about jobs in the state and that he will continue his work to improve the jobs situation in Milwaukee with "renewed enthusiasm.

While he expressed concern about the future of share revenue for the city, Barrett said he was confident that he'll be able to work with the Republican-controlled state government.

“We'll reach out to many people on both sides of the aisle. As I think that you know, my approach has always been about getting things done,” Barrett said. “The one thing I learned as mayor ... is that people don't care whether their garbage gets picked up by a Democrat or Republican, they just want their garbage picked up.

“That means being able to work with people, and I'm proud of the fact that throughout my career I've been able to work with people on both sides of the aisle and I'm confident that will continue.”
