12 News’ Terry Sater just spoke to the mayor about the ’slap.’ Barrett said the woman asked if she could slap him for conceding. He said he’d rather she hug him. So he leaned down.. and got the slap.

Tom Barrett Saves Milwaukee

barrett_billboard

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett has become the official poster child for Governor Walker’s budget reforms. That’s right. The unfailingly liberal mayor took a right turn on public employee benefits, and used the Governor’s reforms to save taxpayers $25 million a year.

In fact, during the debate over collective bargaining changes, Barrett even said the law requiring public employees to contribute to their health care and pension benefits didn’t go far enough because it excluded police and firefighters. Barrett complained that they were receiving “Cadillac benefits”.

Last but not least, Mayor Barrett sought to use the Governor’s reforms in order to get around a ten year old legal settlement with city workers. “It is my hope that all public employees should be required to pay more toward their pension,” Barrett wrote in a letter to Governor Walker.

The Wisconsin Club for Growth thanks Mayor Barrett for helping Governor Walker make his case. More importantly, we thank him for saving Milwaukee taxpayers as much as $36 million in 2012 through health care benefit changes he didn’t have to negotiate with unions, as a result of Governor Walker’s reforms.

Today, the Wisconsin Club for Growth launched several billboards in Milwaukee to thank Mayor Barrett— for using Governor Walker’s reforms! Now we need your help to keep them up.

Let’s help Mayor Barrett spread the good news that Governor Walker’s reforms are working!!!

Thank you,
Wisconsin Club for Growth

Why is Tom Barrett still allowing diluted shit to be dumped into the lake?

For years now the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewage District has been dumping millions of gallons of raw sewage into Lake Michigan.

We have spent over a billion on a “deep tunnel” that doesn’t work during a heavy rain.

Scott Walker says we should separate the sewers in Milwaukee, the cause of the problem. This can be done over the next 30 years, as they need replacing. So we can FINALLY stop dumping shit into the lake.

Walker has a plan. And Barrett has . . . ?

Walker-Barrett debate tonight
