Supervisor David Bowen Responds to LRB-1340/2
State Legislators are Attempting to Tip the Scales of Power in Milwaukee County Government
Milwaukee – Supervisor David Bowen District 10, has issued the following statement in response after reviewing the latest version of bill LRB-1340/2.
“It seems legislators should be focusing on growing our economy, creating jobs and increasing the quality of life in our communities, instead of attempting to tip the scales of power in Milwaukee County Government.
Without having time yet to study this legislation in detail, it appears the proposal is not Government Reform but now a wish list of requests to benefit the executive branch’s power and assume control of the $1.4 billion county budget, assets and services into the future.
At first glance, this proposal attempts to stop the legislative branch’s oversight on critical items such as contracts that could potentially then be skewed to implement reductions in delivering quality services and potentially exclude small and disadvantage businesses as well as personally favored vendors.
Good county governance is important and we should be discussing it. But I am unsure at this time what part of this proposal has anything to do with “good” governance.”
