Strong Milwaukee Boosts Entire State

I write a column once a month for the Madison Capital Times, and devoted my February slot, published today to why Gov. Doyle's Grow Milwaukee Initiative makes sense for the entire state.

That initiative should also be expanded to include Mayor Barrett's downtown trolley and express bus plan- - and the entire package needs the support of regional leaders.

These elected and private sector officials, to date, have been unwilling to spend any political capital on comprehensive Milwaukee investments.

This would be a good time start
