Waukesha Mayor Jeff Scrima, In Op-Ed, Argues For Resource Conservation, Money Conservation And Local Water Supplies
Waukesha's embattled Mayor makes his case in the Journal Sentinel's Sunday Crossroads section that the Lake Michigan diversion option has been designated Waukesha's water supply solution from on high without adequate study, data disclosure or justification.
"...a comprehensive solution that allows us to live within our means, protect our environment and pocketbooks..."
Why, that's downright reasonable, aina.
Maybe this is what conservatism looks like, in full?
Here is another of his op-eds, this one from the Freeman.
We learn something when we read Scrima unfiltered.
After the predictable flurry of comments from pro-diversion forces dies down, let's see what the Wisconsin DNR has to say in response to a letter it received from Scrima after the agency shelved the application.
Seems the DNR has a lot of problems with the application, too, and there are seven more states also to review it - - if the DNR chooses to move it along.
Which is a big "if" at this point.
Some background, here.
