SUP. WEISHAN STATEMENT ON INCOME MAINTENANCE

Milwaukee, WI – Milwaukee County Supervisor John F. Weishan, Jr., released the following statement in response to the State of Wisconsin’s decision to take over management of Milwaukee County’s Income Maintenance program services:

“This is yet another example of County Executive Scott Walker’s inability to manage County programs and services. The County Executive has a track record of running programs into the ground to achieve his goal of transferring programs to other entities.

“You don’t have to go far to find examples. Just look at his proposals to contract out call center functions and transfer control of the House of Correction to the Sheriff. He even supports transferring Milwaukee County’s parks to a parks district that would not be directly accountable to residents.”

“The County Executive’s incompetence is almost endless, and Income Maintenance just happens to be the latest victim. Scott Walker is an incompetent manager who relies on others to perform his work after he drops the ball. It’s clear that the County Executive cannot fix problems. He simply passes them on to others.”
