Greendale Republican Assemnlyman Jeff Stone, a candidate for election to replace Scott Walker as Milwaukee County Executive, manages to tell voters in a few words to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that he does not have the leadership prerequisites - - such as independent judgement, principled stands, a spine - - to lead the County, or much of anything:
"Stone said Thursday that although he voted for Walker's budget-repair bill and its elimination of much of the collective bargaining for public unions, he didn't agree with those provisions.Chris Abele is the far better choice.
"I understand it's a major issue to the unions," Stone said. "It's not necessarily the way I would have drafted this budget-repair bill. I would have approached it in different ways.'"
