Opposes pay raise

31 Oct, 2007

The Milwaukee County Board approves a 4% raise for county supervisors and an increase in property taxes. The pay raise is the first in seven years. They criticize Walker’s budget because it depends on state aid which does not materialize and unrealistic budget cuts. This forces the board to save essential program but also take the blame as spenders:

It seems like you are playing a game where you are counting on us to fix the budget holes but also blame the board for excessive spending.

Walker opposes the pay increase but promises that he will not veto it.
