Milwaukee Alderman Jim Bohl and Milwaukee County Supervisor Deanna Alexander composed a joint news release regarding the proposal to reduce the supervisor’s pay from 50K to 15K per year. As you can imagine, the proposal has created quite a stir. I’m not sure what their position is on this topic, but they do provide some solid historical facts regarding state/local government. You can read the original HERE and decide for yourself.
I can tell you definitively where I stand. Cut the Board pay NOW! For those who may not already know, I ran for County Supervisor in 2012 with this issue as the cornerstone of my campaign. You can see the news release from 9-27-11 HERE. I welcome all of you who have come around to my way of thinking!
