I hope she succeeds. Her initiative to combine the Finance & Audit Committee and the Personnel Committee into the Finance & Personnel Committee may be a move in the right direction.
Now if we can only get her be consistent in her "listening" to the voters of Milwaukee County. In an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel she says she "backs the penny-on-the-dollar increase in the sales tax that voters approved in an advisory referendum more than three years ago."
I'd suggest she also back the smaller and / or part time board that was overwhelmingly approved in the last election. Even though this wasn't a county wide vote how about putting the issue to a binding referendum in the November election. That would be some proactive listening.
