John Manke is an active former Bay View resident who is involved in numerous neighborhood organizations, including the Bay View Historical Society, the Humboldt Park Fourth of July Association and the Shore Shore Farmers Market. He believes Bay View has a fine tradition in its past that we do not want to lose in the future.
Our State Governor, Scot Walker is on his throne. He feels that unions are of no value for his rich friends. They would like our state to get rid of all of our unions. He would like to reverse 50 years of Wisconsin history His friends need to make more profits. The public be damned. He feels that our union people do not deserve their union negotiated benefits. Many public workers took smaller pay raises to obtain these benefits. Now Scott wants to eliminate them. He wants to eliminate medical aid to dependents because they don't deserve any help from the state. When he sits on his throne, he could at least flush the tolilet. He really creating a big stink in there. His throne will have handsoap and toilet tissue, although he denied that to the Milwaukee County Park system. Maybe he wants to have limousine service for his rich friends to save on gas spending. As he stated when he became governor, everything is open for sale in state government. Naming rights are next thing to make more money for the state. Pay toilets in state office buildings are next. Admission fees to see government in action will come next. He might even have the inmates run the state prisons to save some money. He may even hire doctors wihout proper licenses work in our mental hospitals like he did in Milwaukee County. He is only trying to save money. You had better guard our geese if he is going to throw a party. A few parks lost their geese last year. I wonder what he will think of next to save money.
