While catching up on the news, I was heartened to see that the Milwaukee County Board has decided to take some time to analyze the foolish proposal to move the mental health complex. This is especially true given that the county has already invested so much money and effort in getting the current facility up to code.
Furthermore, the numbers I have seen aren't adding up the way Walker is presenting them (more on this at a later date).
What is disconcerting is Walker's persistence on the issue:
Walker has suggested closing the deal soon, noting that St. Michael owner Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare might not wait much longer for the county to decide. The County Board last week voted to delay consideration for two months for more study.
After all, we all remember what happened the last time the board rubber-stamped a proposal from the County Executive without giving it a thorough vetting.
