More reaction to this column that appeared in the Waukesha Freeman on December 8th. Wigderson, Enriquez It’s time for James Wigderson to put up or shut up. His personal attacks on the mayor of Waukesha are nothing but sour grapes because the candidate with an election sign in his yard, Darryl Enriquez, lost in the […]

Or at least they’re catching up. “Blue Collar Conservative” a.k.a. Waukesha School Board member Steve Edlund commenting at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel website on the rejected garbage fee: You would think that the city employees and management would want to save jobs, management save staff, have new equipment and same staffing levels keep or improve […]

The latest city budget proposal is out and has already received the endorsement of Waukesha Mayor Jeff Scrima. What Scrima neglects to mention as he touts a budget that has no increase in the tax levy is that it introduces fees for garbage collection for the first time. Where the last budget ran into trouble […]

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. Edlund needs to get a grip on reality. The last time anyone proposed reducing the number of aldermen in the […]

I had to laugh tonight when someone during the public comment portion of tonight’s meeting read a comment from “Blue Collar Conservative” from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel website. I can’t imagine why someone would place their trust in an anonymous comment at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel enough that they would think the members of the […]

I find it very interesting that a member of the school board, Steve Edlund, also known as the “Blue Collar Conservative,” should demand representation for the town of Waukesha on the city of Waukesha’s Water Utility Commission.
