Dithering Gov. 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? "
The Journal Sentinel Editorial Wisconsin's New Secessionists (April 14, 2014) states:
Several Republican officials have rightly come under fire recently for their actions/ conduct.
Perhaps you thought New Berlin Citizens for Responsible Government was dead. NBCRG Speaks had posted a blog (regarding NBCRG) in September, but nothing at all in October, November, and December. Then we witnessed NBCRG's resurrection. 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.
