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. She would like plans set into to motion as part of the 2015 County Budget:
Milwaukee County Supervisor [...]
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.
Democrats David Bowen, Bria Grant, and Sara Johann and Republican Artis Landon all live outside the district, while Democrat Tia Torhorst is the only candidate running to represent the 10th [...]
Just a day after Representative Sandy Pasch’s announcement that she will not seek re-election from the Wisconsin 10th Assembly District, County Supervisor David Bowen throws his hat squarely into the ring.

Of course the majority of these cuts are required under the law passed by the Republicans earlier [...]
So under legislation passed by his new cronies in Madison, County Executive Chris Abele got a hot shot County Controller who gets to check out the budget…and of course County Executive Abele has his own budget director whose total absolutely most important responsibility is to get the budget right…but instead we get a budget proposal [...]
Yesterday The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s JSOnline website published two more articles that outline the dysfunction that continues to plague Milwaukee County government. Now I am not holding the county board blameless in this, but post Act 14, the county executive has consolidated powers…something he fully supported to the detriment of county residents…yet he continues to [...]
