On Thursday 21 May, Milwaukee Alderman Joe Dudzik was killed in a motorcycle accident in southwest Milwaukee. Alderman Dudzik was on his way home from an event at the Harley-Davidson Museum, just southwest of Talossa, when the accident occurred. He had been drinking, and was speeding when his motorcycle crashed into barriers at a construction site. No other vehicles were involved. Sadly, Alderman Dudzik was not wearing a helmet.
Alderman Dudzik had served on the Milwaukee Common Council since 2002, representing the 11th district in Milwaukee's South Side. His funeral was on Wednesday, and was attended by many prominent GTA leaders, including Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, but no Talossan officials.
