Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely baby daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
Milwaukee County Supervisors Steve Taylor and Mark Borkowksi are suggesting the Milwaukee County Board be reduced in size from 18 members to 13 and that the board’s budget be cut by 40%.
However, and this is a major however, Taylor and Borkowski (both of whom represent parts of Franklin) are not endorsing a cut in salary for board members. Under their proposal, supervisors would keep their present full-time salaries. The idea is essentially worthless and doesn’t constitute anything near genuine reform.
At the end of his program today, WISN’s Mark Belling called Taylor and Borkowski, “weasels.”
I expect such a worthless plan from the likes of Taylor. I’m a bit surprised Borkowski would go along. Yet another sign practically everyone on the board doesn’t want themselves or anyone else to kill the golden goose.
