Milwaukee County Board Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic Praises New Milwaukee Art Museum Expansion

Results of Historic Compromise

By - Apr 8th, 2014 01:07 pm

Milwaukee County Board Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic issued the following statement regarding plans for the expansion of the Milwaukee Art Museum:

“This exciting new design is a giant step forward for the Milwaukee Art Museum and Milwaukee County. Featuring an enhanced lakefront entrance, and an increase in space for its extensive and invaluable art collection, this treasure on our lakefront will continue to shine as one of our many treasures and cultural assets.

“This expansion could not have moved forward without the historic compromise between the Milwaukee Art Museum and the War Memorial Center. Much work went into creating the historic compromise that allows for this expansion.

“I’m proud that the Milwaukee County Board brought in Justice Janine Geske and unanimously approved this important accord between two cultural icons in our county. We had a vision, worked together, made a commitment, and the results will benefit generations to come. This is how we continue to build a world class county.”

    Come on Marina, at least put an honest title on what will (PLEASE!!!) be one of your LAST press releases! How about “Marina praises herself for another amazing job well done”?

    Well, we can all thank whichever god, if any god that we pray to for giving us something as glorious as the results of the election on April 1st, where an OVERWHELMING number of county residents got out and voted the ridiculous full time county board straight out of existence! This also had an unintended bonus, which came in the form of the various unintentionally hilarious press releases issued by Marina herself, along with several other soon to be former board members. Sure, keep telling yourself that the wealthy Republican special interests colluded to bring you down and end your fighting the good fight for all of the hard working people of the county and blah, blah, blah. Guess what Marina, I am one of the many hard working residents of the county and most of us aren’t fools, we know when someone’s pulling a fast one on us, or in your case, fast one after fast one as you simply continued a slimy tradition dating back decades, taking an at best part time job on the county board and re-naming it “full time” so you can collect your full time salary and not do a damn thing most days of the week!

    No, Marina we’re not fools and don’t give me that crap about scheming fat cat Republicans tricking 70+% of the voters into thinking that you’re a thief when in reality, you’re the one sticking up for and defending us from those evil fat cats. 70+% of us figured out who the thieves are and it YOU and your board, taking full time salaries for not even a part time job! (although,that’s not really much different than a lot of county jobs, like the road crew where you’ve got 5 guys doing the work of two or the parks workers where a younger relative who had a summer job recently, I heard all of his stories about how the full timers let him know real quick how things worked, like how if you figure out that cutting the lawn for one of the Whitnall Park playground areas only takes a couple of hours but the full time guys manage to spend all day doing it, well you sure as hell better not go and start cutting it in two hours and looking for more work for the day, this is Milwaukee county gov’t and we get paid to take it easy, not to work our asses off you moron!)

    No, Milwaukee County government doesn’t play a very big role in my life, other than what it TAKES AWAY from myself and every other resident of the county. Besides the king’s ransom every county resident pays in property taxes every year, enough to make this proud 20+ year east side resident actually consider from time to time something he considered about as good of an option as just committing suicide just a few years ago, that being moving to a place like Brookfield, seem more and more like a sensible idea, even if its something that still leaves a bad taste in my mouth, because if I moved to Brookfield or anywhere in Waukesha County, I could own the same value of home and pay LESS THAN HALF the amount I now pay for property tax!

    So now, you want to run for state assembly Marina??? I’d vote for Jeff Dahmer before I voted for you! I can’t wait until you lose the primary and just might have to actually get a REAL JOB! Oh no, I’m sure you’ll be headed straight for some non-profit, probably some “social justice” type place where they take a large amount of money in gov’t grants, use most of that money to pay the staff, people like you for whom putting in anything more than 25 hours in a week is definitely tough duty but you’ll once again happily cash that nice paycheck and once you and the rest of the bloated and under-worked staff is paid, there’s a smidgeon of money left that ends up going to the people you claim to be helping!

    Good riddance you useless leach!
