Self-Serving Surplus

Milwaukee, City and County, was on the brink of insolvency, or so we were told. Budgets were cut. Programs were cut. Workers were cut and furloughed.

Milwaukee finishes year with $23 million surplus

Milwaukee County expects $8.9 surplus for 2009

Were the public employees and the programs/services they provide decimated simply to score political points for the mayor's and county executive's attempt to be governor?
