The Integrity of a Passionate Endorsement

When I say that as a fiscal conservative and a hard-working woman of integrity, I am proud to support Patti Logsdon for Milwaukee County Supervisor, I mean it.  When I say that she would represent a massive improvement for her constituents, that warrants some explaining.  Please read on for a true inside view at what goes on at the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors.

Here’s the Truth About “Breathe Easy”

It is election season, and my political opponent has been exposed by our local newspaper today for extreme anti-law enforcement statements. As a result, I find that I am once again under attack for a social media post that went viral in 2014.  I provide this post here, to again, provide an explanation for what happened: 1) In late 2014, some very violent protesters began calling for the harassment, attack, and in some cases, execution of cops. As you may recall, some members of law enforcement were subsequently killed. 2) Members of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors stood during a government meeting, unbuttoned their dress shirts, and ...

Alexander Proposes Taxpayer-Focused Budget Plan

*Update: 11/8/17* - This plan could have been a great starting point for at a minimum, negotiations toward a better 2018 Budget.  Unfortunately, the Milwaukee County Board's majority decided to not even give this plan a hearing, to not debate it, and to reject it entirely.  Because of this, coupled with the Board's total disregard for good government, good policymaking, and good management of such a large organization in pushing forward with its initial budget which disregards public safety, cuts homeless shelters, cuts bus routes, and will make life for many Milwaukeeans much tougher, I have voted against the budget and its tax levy.  The County ...
