Cindy moved to Brookfield in 1994 with her husband and three children in tow. It's been a very interesting seventeen years.
Elementary schools saved, block scheduling stopped
That's the headline from the June 1 Brookfield East Special Edition of the Spartan Banner. Yes, it's a senior prank. A pretty good one, I have to admit. Find your favorite East student to get your hands on a copy.
City of Brookfield Clerk Kristine Schmidt will call August 19th her last day. She's finally going to enjoy a retirement.
I don't know how long she's been there, or what her thoughts are, or even her plans, so I'll tell you the bit I do know: She's done a fine job over the years.
I'm mad. Really mad. I hope you'll be mad, too, after you see this. Please tell everyone you know. It's time the union fools understand they've overstepped their boundaries. Push back. Hard. They are out of control and I'm not inclined to let them get away with it anymore.
Some of you took offense by my use of the word thugs in the last post. Here's an email I received:
Dear Ms. Kilkenny
It's the third week of the month, so there is a Common Council meeting on Tuesday. In addition there are several committee meetings. Unfortunately, the agenda is not on the City's website yet. There are a slew of liquor licenses. There is a change to the 2035 Master Plan for the Northeast Corridor.
There's the appointment of Dean Marquardt the Landfill Moratorium Committee. That's an interesting turn of events as I wasn't aware of an opening on that committee. Oh, and the committee never meets. But you know, I'm sure if they ever actually get around to talking about the landfill and The Shire and all that stuff, Dean will be the Man.
Yep. You don't expect Elmbrook to actually live within their own budget, do you?
Don't miss this story. That $400,000 won't be coming from Santa Claus.
