The Name Of The MPS School Board President Is Not Barry Bonds

When Scott Walker was on the Charlie Sykes radio talk show celebrating the state budget signing, the discussion turned to local leaders and governments the guest and the host said were still locked into employee contracts that were still too expensive.

Listen to the podcast of the discussion beginning at about the seven-minute mark. It sure sounds to me like Walker refers to the head of Milwaukee Public Schools as "Barry Bonds."

There was a former Major League ballplayer Bobby Bonds who passed away in 2003.

His son Barry, the retired Major League home run king who is awaiting sentencing for felony obstruction in the federal government's steroid probe, is the only living Barry Bonds of whom I am aware.

He is not the President of the Milwaukee School Board.

The Milwaukee School Board President is Michael Bonds, Ph.D.
