Can I get a normal, conservative mayor, please?
Over at RightWisconsin, I point out that the city of Waukesha has had a bad streak of mayors. Are we ready for a normal mayor at last? I go through the tree most recent mayors: Lombardi, Nelson and Scrima.
Jeff Scrima was elected at the beginning of the 2010 Republican wave. There were warning signs of trouble even during the campaign. At a mayoral debate at Carroll University, he talked about digging a tunnel under East Avenue to help college kids cross the street and snow plowing the bicycle trails. He also promised to add someone to the city payroll who would do nothing but seek out state and federal grants for city spending.
