The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

What is the RTA and Who Again Supports it?

McCue, RTA, Milwaukee County

Please take note to the blue text quotes from Mayor McCue on unelected taxing boards!  Mayor McCue is going to Madison to give his support to the RTA.  An unelected taxing board!

 

So in less than a year Mayor McCue changes his tune.

 

Mixed reviews on breaking up government

By Tom Kertscher of the Journal Sentinel

 

Posted: July 21, 2009

 

Mayors gave mixed reactions Tuesday to Scott Walker's proposal to dismantle Milwaukee County government, but some expressed interest in taking on county functions - if funding comes along with the responsibilities.

 

Walker has proposed having the state take over administration of public assistance programs, social services for seniors and people with disabilities, and the courts. Cities and villages could take over maintenance of county roads. He also advocated for new, specialized districts to run transit, the parks, and the zoo and local cultural institutions.

 

The ideas drew criticism from Cudahy Mayor Ryan McCue, a former Milwaukee County supervisor.

 

"If elected governor, would (Walker) support adding thousands of jobs to the state's payroll, because that is what would have to be done under his proposal," McCue said in an e-mail.

 

"Why blow up one form of government only to turn around and create another one, i.e. parks and transit?  I do not support unelected boards like MATC and MMSD having the authority to levy taxes, and I fear that is what could happen under his proposal."
