We learn the real Vrakas on Tuesday
The proposed Waukesha County budget for 2007 will be unveiled Tuesday. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, taxpayers in Waukesha can expect a $1.8 million tax increase, approximately a 2% increase.
If this is true, County Executive Dan Vrakas will have failed to keep his central campaign promise, “As your executive, I will reduce your tax burden and I will not stop until Waukesha County’s taxes are the lowest in the state.”
Vrakas will be responsible for two straight property tax increases. Moreover, this budget is entirely a Vrakas era budget, and he is to be held wholly responsible. If he cannot find a way to fulfill his campaign promise, then he will have undermined the whole purpose of his election, as well as his re-election.
