We need to keep our talent in Milwaukee County!

 

Theo Lipscomb’s Milwaukee County Board was warned last week that if they passed a resolution cutting the salaries of county administrators, Milwaukee County’s talented employees would leave for the private sector. It did not even take a week for this resolution to result in the loss of one of Milwaukee County’s great public servants, Hector Colon. Lipscomb’s County Board should be making policy to keep talented people working in government, not to push them out.
