County Supervisors Elizabeth Coggs and Toni Clark, you make us proud. You believe in spending the hard earned money I give to the county in the form of a county tax every year to spend on a $600 per night hotel rooms, wasted travel and meals.
Of course, you were doing county business, Gwen Moore had all the time of day to assist you in your needs … Wait, what were those needs again? Oh Yes, front row seats to see the new president maybe?
Yet, we look to Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, Sir, you spent your own money, drove your own vehicle and did not waste my hard earned taxpayers’ money. Thank you. You, sir, you are truly a trusted official, and we can rely on you to do the right thing and not screw over your people and waste our tax dollars on these types of frivolous activities.
I would like to take this opportunity to ask Supervisors Coggs and Clark some questions as I pay your salaries.
1. What work did you do on behalf of the county?
2. Did you two share a room to save expenses?
3. Did you attend President Bush’s swearing in ceremony?
I really want to know as a citizen, as a resident and as a CEO who these two ladies think they are. We are in a recession, people. We are cutting back on trips and engagements. Yet, just because you have the same skin tone as the first African-American president, you feel you can rape the good citizens of Milwaukee County and take a leisure trip.
I expect I will never get an answer from those two ladies.
