Well, it’s a step in the right direction. Mayor Jeff Scrima decided yesterday to reimburse the city for the cost of the book to rid the issue of the conflict of interest. Since the book is no longer required reading, and since city funds are no longer being used to promote a book published by one of his campaign contributors, this issue is pretty much resolved.
Except, of course, for the poisoned relationship between the mayor and the police chief that could have been avoided if the mayor had the maturity to just listen to the city staff’s concerns. And then there’s whether the residents of the city of Waukesha should ever again trust the judgement of a person who could not see such an obvious example of a conflict of interest.
But it’s good to know that someone at city hall, or one of the mayor’s advisers, decided to spend the fifty cents to buy a newspaper before Scrima found himself in real (impeachment-level) trouble.
