According the the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Milwaukee County is on the verge of declaring bankruptcy after the November elections. If Scott Walker claims to be our County Executive, and we are on the verge of declaring bankruptcy, what does that say about his leadership? Our County parks are becoming like abandoned graveyards with severe staffing problems. Our Transit system needs help. The jobs that he is promising can be found with any minimum pay employer. Our medical help system is in bad financial straits. The staffing of our County Mental Institutions is done with staff not meeting the requirements necessary for the job. With the damage he has done in Milwaukee County, he now wants to do this to our State government. We have an election coming in November. Please take the time to vote for our elected officials. Your vote is very important. Remember, Scott Walker always remembers to support his friends and political sponsors, but he cares very little for union workers, disabled people, and senior citizens. Your vote determines who we elect to political offices. Don't complain if you do not take the time to vote in November. You get what you voted for, like it or not.
