Scott Walker Pushes Leasing Mitchell Airport: Chicago Trib Investigates Public Project Leasing

Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker keeps touting his plan to lease Mitchell Airport as a one-stop, one-step county finance panacea.

He says Chicago will reap a bonanza when it leases Midway Airport.

Check out this Tribune story about what happens to public costs in Chicago when such leases are signed.

Turns out you pay more for services after big project privatization.

A lot more.
