Both Brookfield Mayoral Candidates Oppose Revenue Amendment

While the race for the position of Waukesha mayor presents candidates on opposite sides of the constitutional amendment to restrict public revenue, both of the candidates in another Waukesha County mayoral contest openly oppose the amendment.

Current Brookfield Mayor Jeff Speaker and his challenger, Alderman Cindy Kilkenny, explain that the amendment would take away local fiscal control when what is really needed is more of it.

Both Speaker and Kilkenny come from local government backgrounds, as does Larry Nelson who is the Waukesha mayoral candidate opposing the revenue amendment. The one mayoral candidate who supports the amendment, Ann Nitschke, is currently a state Republican legislator. As I mentioned yesterday, it'll be interesting to see if she changes her tune if elected to local government office.

Thanks, Grumps.

I imagine if the amendment can't catch on at the local level in Waukesha, there isn't a locale in Wisconsin that it could.
