As quick as the scandal erupted, it’s over. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Alderman Glenn Savoie resigned last night after a long conversation with Mayor Larry Nelson. As for Nelson, he deserves credit for recognizing Savoie’s membership on the Common Council as a real problem and pushing Savoie to resign. What I am hoping to see now from Nelson is a reform of the selection process to include background checks for filling aldermanic vacancies. I think we can expect such a plan at the next Common Council meeting.
