Why Milwaukee needs a County Executive like Scott Walker

Because the Milwaukee County Board is stacked with tax and spenders like Supervisor Patricia Jursik.

In Sunday’s Crossroads section in the Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel, Jursik writes a piece opposing the demolition of the Hoan Bridge.

Read this bit of wisdom from Jursik that includes a call for a tax increase, toll roads, and insults to senior retirees all in the same argument:

“Our South Shore communities have experienced billions of dollars of development since the Hoan Bridge was built. I have received from the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission a footprint for the extension of the 794 freeway to Ryan Road and am now calling on the Department of Transportation to discontinue studies on demolition of the bridge and instead begin to fund the completion of this South Shore asset.

If the state wants to know where it can get funds to pay for the re-decking of the bridge and the extension of the 794 freeway, it can come from a toll road from the Wisconsin/Illinois state line to the county line. My constituents understand the need to collect money from snowbirds who earned their pensions here but no longer pay state taxes and only return to enjoy our parks and festivals. Many of these individuals visit Milwaukee County from places that already charge tolls to tourists from Wisconsin.”

No clue.
