Whither MKE County: Pat Jursik Calls Out The Suburbs on Housing Discrimination

This is a surprisingly harsh assessment of the suburbs blatant disregard for equal housing…on top of the fact that they oppose regional public transportation at every turn…but County Supervisor Pat Jursik simply lays it on the line:

Supervisor Patricia Jursik today issued the following statement regarding the SEWRPC Regional Housing Plan:

“Ferguson, MO is the […]

Candidate Spotlight: AD 10


As I’m sure many of you know there’s an election this Tuesday to fill Sandy Pasch’s old assembly seat which includes Shorewood and parts of Milwaukee. All candidates who have declared are democrats so I figured it’d be nice to ask them a few questions to see how they differ from each other. What follows […]

Whither MKE County: Downsizing Physical Plant!

County Supervisor Pat Jursik is preparing a resolution to reduce the number of buildings that Milwaukee County holds at their City Campus facility and start the move to dispose of other underutilized properties in the coming years.

A funny fact about the 10th Assembly District candidates

Interesting fact about the candidates running for the State Assembly in the 10th district:

Only one of the five candidates actually lives in the district.

That Didn’t Take Long: Supervisor Bowen to Run for Rep. Pasch’s Seat.

I don’t think he’ll be the only candidate…seats without incumbents are magnets for political figures wanting to move up and there is no reason […]

Dissimulation on County Board Referendum Right Down To The Wire

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is taking the lies and obfuscations about the Act 14 required referendum on Milwaukee County Board pay and benefits right down to the wire. In a front page article in their March 31, 2014 print edition, they continue the nonsense about cutting supervisor’s pay by half will result in a part […]

Whither MKE County: The April Fool’s Referendum

It’s amazing that the last nail in the coffin of the Milwaukee County Board as we know it is a bogus referendum that is just a week away. Except for two very minor articles in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, this referendum has gone pretty much unnoticed. The left and the supporters of the board realize […]

Sheriff Clarke asks for more money

so I attended the county boards finance committee today where Sheriff David Clarke appeared to ask them to give him more money in the budget

When questioned by Supervisors about patrolling parks and how the HOC was handled etc Clarke got somewhat defensive like usual.

Props to Supervisors Schmitt,Jursik,Bowen and Lipscomb (and any others […]

Hey, I Think We Found Another Miscalculation In The County Budget!

In an article posted to JSOnline this evening, writer Steve Schultze of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel outlines the staff cuts and budget cuts for the County Board that County Executive Chris Abele has proposed in his County Budget. Of course the majority of these cuts are required under the law passed by the Republicans earlier […]
