Asked why he chose not to continue to serve as chairman of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors following his swearing in as interim County Executive, Lee Holloway said, “I don’t have that big an ego.”
Yeah, clearly Holloway doesn’t have that big an ego:
Holloway’s elaborate swearing-in ceremony on the third floor of the courthouse drew more than 250 people and featured an honor guard, two judges administering the oath of office, a sermon from a local pastor and a singer. Holloway is the first African American to hold the position of county executive.
In related news, Holloway began cleaning house shortly before being sworn in as the acting County Executive, firing four members of Scott Walker’s administration, including Housing Director Tim Russell, who is allegedly the target of a John Doe investigation into allegations of possible misconduct in office.
