    Alderman Zielinski should know that Kilbourn was responsible for bribing Wisconsin’s Legislature in order to build the La Crosse & Milwaukee railroad. https://www.wicourts.gov/courts/history/article15.htm

    I hope his choice of Milwaukee historical figures is not reflective of his governing philosophy.

  2. Thomas Martinsen says:

    Reactionaries have been dissing the streetcar since Barrett got federal funding for it decades ago. They did their best to keep it from happening. Now that the Hop is happening, some sullen reactionaries are still in diss mode – despite the apparent popularity of the new streetcar. Z looks like he is joined at the hip with the knee-jerk nay sayer Bob Donovan on this issue.
