"But compared to Detroit it's doing OK."
Well, that's not good enough. Both the young and the old are fleeing our fair city and the one thing that could slow the flow, is the one thing that we have NEVER seen here, visionary leadership...
VISION & Leadership! Who has a vision for Milwaukee?
Weather (nothing can be done about that), lousy schools, crime, poor business climate, crumbling infrastructure...
"Where there is no vision, the people will perish!" -Proverbs 29:18
"I don't get apoplectic about all this," Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said of the projections. "These are estimates. The state can use one formula, the feds can use another. The focus I'm zeroing in on is growing and investing in Milwaukee."
Oh, OK, then why do taxes keep increasing?
The two things that Milwaukee's political leadership lacks are what the city needs most: vision and incentive. Who has the plan? Where is the hope and change for Milwaukee?
