Walker's Political Maneuvers

Elections, State

Scott Walker can't seem to make a decision on whether to allow the Menomonee tribe to open a casino in Kenosha.    The  Journal Sentinel  reports,   "Originally, Walker said he would decide the issue last year but repeatedly broke his self-imposed deadlines."   A  letter  (Political game on casino) published in today's Journal Sentinel,  reminds us that Walker is spending $1.5 million of the taxpayers' money for an out-of-state law firm to study the casino issue and help him make his decision.   The letter writer asks, " Isn't the governor  smart enough to make this decision on his own?

NBCRG Took a Beating

Elections, Local groups

Well, sort of.  Here we are in the fourth month of  2014, and there have been only 3 NBCRG Speaks blog posts this year  (Jan. 11, March 12, and March 24).  What were those three about?   The first was a eulogy for Herb Eggie, the first president of NBCRG.  In the second, NBCRG urged voters to re-elect Ald. Laura Karvala. In the third, NBCRG urged people to vote for Dave Maxey and Art Marquardt (the incumbents)  for School Board.
