I’m torn on the Milwaukee County Executive race
On the one hand, electing Supervisor John Weishan as County Executive would be a disaster for Milwaukee County. On the other hand, using the formula that I should support the candidate that will give me the most material, it’s a toss-up between Weishan and County Board Chairman Lee Holloway.
Then there is the news that Chris Abele is considering a run for County Executive, and is willing to stick $1 million of his own money into the race. Will liberals refer to Abele as “Millionaire Chris Abele?” Will they criticize him for trying to buy the county executive office? Will they criticize him for inheriting his money rather than earning it on his own? Will every employee of the Argosy Foundation be scrutinized to see if they have ever benefitted from a government program? Are the employees unionized?
