Pay no attention to the people behind the curtain

It's Budget Time Again, Kids

by capper

Budget times are almost as emotionally stirring for some people as are the major political elections. These are heady times when almost everyone has an opinion and are more than glad to share it with anyone who will listen.

Now is our chance to express our opinions to Scott Walker regarding the upcoming budget for 2008. There has been three community meetings scheduled. They are:

Monday, August 6, 2007

Wilson Park Senior Center

2601 W. Howard Ave.

10-11:30 a.m.

Tuesday, August 7, 2007

Brown Deer Public Library

5600 W. Bradley Rd.

2-3:30 p.m.

Monday, August 13, 2007

Washington Park Senior Center

4420 W. Vliet St.

6-7 p.m.

If you are like me, and will be either working or vacationing at those times, you can call Walker at 278-4211 or email him at countyexec@milwcnty.com.
Walker has already stated that he doesn't trust the people to make their own decisions regarding the proposed referendum for a one cent sales tax increase. Apparently Walker feels the same way about the people's input for budget priorities, as that the information regarding the meetings came from a county board supervisor. Walker hasn't announced anything yet, that I could find.
So, whether you support his position of putting the almighty dollar before the quality of life for the citizens of Milwaukee, or you oppose his misplaced priorities and value helping people more that a couple of bucks, please come to a meeting or contact him by phone or email. If you don't, and you don't like the results of the next budget, don't complain to anyone but yourself.
