Convenient that Barrett was out of town on the day we find out that him and his police chief have been cooking the books on crime stats.

How can the guy rip on Scott walker for his campaign fundraising when Barrett is spending Milwaukee money campaigning all over the state? He must be using the millions he saved by using his opponents reforms... Funny how the left works sometimes...

Barrett attacks Walker on education? Areas that embraced ACT 10 were not attacked. Only the ones that extended union contracts. Recently, Waukesha School Board Superintendent Todd Gray said, "We're in a very good place, with no expected layoffs nor any expected program reductions." This was after erasing a $9.3 million deficit. This is happening all over Wisconsin with over $1 Billion Dollars saved. That's why you should vote Walker/ Kleefisch June 5th. www.reforms.wi.gov

Keith, don't forget to thank the public sector for being the only citizens to pay for your austerity measures. Oh. And by the way. All the money you stole from them was discretionary income. Wonder why business is bad in Wisconsin? And I resent having my tax dollars invested in propaganda websites like reforms.gov. It's like going to kochfacts.com. You are ignorant of what is really going on in school districts. Your lack of knowledge of labor, and how to manage labor successfully is not surprising giving your politics, cherry picking of facts, and divide and conquer agenda. Tune in to academia once in awhile to keep yourself grounded from the alternate reality you live in. What will a teacher be worth in this new right to work state you are trying to create in Wisconsin, for the out of state dirty money industries that are all in to denigrate our infrastructure and privatize everything . Scott Walker failed as county exec, and he is failing the citizens of this State with the agenda he is so proud of.
