TOWN OF WAUKESHA – Anyone passing by the former would-be
Walgreens site at the corner of Sunset Drive and Highway
X on Friday morning may have noticed a sign purporting a
future development on the property.
“Perverts corner – Adult superstore site,” reads the
hand-scrawled sign. “Financing by Grahm-Banske, Tammy
Faye-Vansyke Group.” Town Chairman John Marek said no
“Adult superstore” representatives have contacted him
with intentions of developing at the site, which
Walgreens officials recently revealed would no longer be
the future home of a pharmacy that’s been planned there
Marek said he has no idea who would have placed the
sign, which apparently seeks to malign former Town
Chairwoman Angie E. Van Scyoc and former Town Supervisor
Both Banske and Van Scyoc lost their election bids to
the Town Board earlier this month, Banske as an
incumbent and Van Scyoc as a challenger for an open
seat. Banske is now running for the 97th Assembly
District seat as a Republican.
“Whoever did this is part of the political character
assassination-type entities, and it just has no place,”
Banske said. “This is one of the reasons people don’t
get involved (in public office) because then their name
is subjected to ridiculous whims of ridiculous people.”
Van Scyoc said she saw the sign herself.
“Such incredibly juvenile behavior is not worthy of
comment,” Van Scyoc said.
