Barrett Should Leave Walker At The Curb

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is exploring if the city, blocked from spending federal transit funds on a downtown streetcar system by noted rail phobic and naysayer Scott Walker - - a/k/a/ the Milwaukee County Executive - - can invest the funds in the system without Walker's approval.

It's a long-overdue move.

Walker has for years vetoed modernizing transit in the downtown, diminishing development in the city.

This is the same tactic used by former Waukesha County Executive Daniel Finley, whose anti-rail politics served as a model for Walker's.

Barrett is on the right track. Walker is off the track - - by choice - - and that's where he should left.
