March 16, 2020 – Barton, WI – The “Barton Area” of West Bend has found a way to blend into the greater city fabric while retaining its historic flavor. Visibility has increased through a growing volunteer base that cleans and decorates the streets, gardens, walkways and riverbanks while hosting community parties, brat fry’s and parades.
Customers appreciate a relaxed environment that harkens back to days gone by, enjoying friendly customer service from restaurants, repair services, counseling services and more. This balance is maintained through the thoughtful, dedicated members of the Historic Barton Business Association who meet regularly to plan events and to monitor the quality of the overall business community. The current Chairperson of these local leaders is Justice Madl.
Justice Madl, owner and operator of Do Your Hair Justice on Barton Avenue, has daily opportunity to listen to the people who live and work in this community. He listens to the pride of generations of family contributions to the area. He welcomes new residents and business owners who are investing in continuing the legacy of the historic Barton district.
Two years ago, Justice decided to further enhance the potential of “Barton” by becoming Alderperson for District 7. Justice works with city officials and employees with obvious results. He promotes the area at City Council meetings. He welcomes new businesses to the area, including the renovated Barton Elementary School, now affordable housing for many. He worked with the firefighters to create and establish the Firefighter’s Memorial at the newly named Firefighter Memorial Bluff.
Justice Madl knows how to work with others to enhance the vitality of this valuable district within West Bend. Justice Madl tirelessly represents each of us. Justice Madl deserves another term as Alderperson in the 7th District. Please join me in re-electing Justice Madl on April 7.

- Just because your comment doesn’t show up right away doesn’t mean you’re being censored. When you post a comment it must first go through our filtering software. If it fails, your comment goes into a queue for manual approval.
- Just because a comment or advertisement is on the site, doesn’t mean WCI endorses it.
- The above rules are not intended to stop criticism or dissenters, but rather to stop those who are incapable of participating in a civilized manner.
*Trolling: a troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal, on-topic discussion, often for the troll’s amusement.
