Mark Neumann spurned the Republican Party hierarchy on Thursday, saying he won’t pursue the party’s endorsement for governor.

So does this mean he’s going to run as an independent?

Salary increases proposed for Waukesha County officials. Can I get one, too?

Former Waukesha Mayor Larry Nelson will return to the classroom in the fall after the Waukesha School Board approved a contract with him Wednesday, the same night it also voted to send layoff notices to 18 full-time teachers.

In approving Nelson’s return, the school board was honoring a contractual agreement that allowed him to go on unpaid leave for four years when Nelson was elected mayor in 2006, Waukesha Superintendent Todd Gray said.

Less than a month into his term as Waukesha’s new mayor, Jeff Scrima is taking exception to aldermen who are embarking on their own public relations battle over the city’s quest for Lake Michigan water.

Common Council President Paul Ybarra, Ald. Joan Francoeur and Ald. Rick Tortomasi are meeting with representatives of the City of Milwaukee on Wednesday while Scrima announced Friday that he would have the first of some upcoming meetings with three Milwaukee aldermen May 24.

Scrima said he asked Ybarra to wait and join in Scrima’s meeting, but Ybarra declined.
