Publication:Waukesha Freeman (Conley); Date:Jun 23, 2011; Section:Opinion; Page Number:8A Council right to override Scrima’s veto Mayor’s erratic behavior raises too many questions It was interesting Tuesday night to watch many of the supporters of Mayor Jeff Scrima ask for “decorum” in response to Alderman Terry Thieme’s guest opinion column in the Waukesha Freeman.

Waukesha School Board member Steve Edlund threatened the Waukesha Common Council Sunday night that if they didn’t do what he said, he would organize a grass-roots effort to reduce the Common Council to seven members.

For the record, I’ve had Christmas decorations in my yard longer than that. So on the issue that’s supposedly driving this recall? The […]

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting John Kalblinger is running in the recall election of Waukesha Alderman Peggy Bull. Kalbinger is off to a poor start by putting Frank Greuel on his campaign committee, although I guess that is to be expected. It will be interesting to see what Kalbinger proposes to do about the […]

I’m really shocked by the decision by Waukesha District Attorney Brad Schimel not to at least investigate the matter further of whether or not someone else signed Frank Greuel’s name to petitions to recall Waukesha Alderman Peggy Bull.
