Milwaukee County Exec Determined To Save Transit

Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele inherited a failing bus system pushed to financial free-fall by now-Gov. Scott Walker, but with some skillful planning and teamwork, he's buying some time until more sustainable fiscal supports can be found.

Here's hoping his plan contained in the 2012 proposed County budget is adopted and keeps things patched together.

Milwaukee County absolutely has got to have a successful transit system, or the region's corrosive unemployment and segregation are going to get worse, not better, as recent data have shown.
