Milwaukee finishes year with $20 million surplus

by thoughtfulconservative

Via JSOnline.

Barrett credited the surplus to his administration’s efforts to hold down spending by imposing employee furloughs, holding positions vacant, raising the snow-and-ice fee and limiting overtime, as well as lower energy prices. He praised the Common Council and city employee unions for cooperating in those moves, which were driven by the need to contribute $49 million to the city pension fund, as a result of stock market losses in late 2008.

Aren’t these the kinds of thing Scott Walker is being blasted for by the left? Funny I haven’t seen anyone criticizing Barrett.

I’m not holding my breath either.
