I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

McCue makes the statement that
The bond-rating firm Standard & Poor's said Wednesday it has assigned its second-highest rating to Wisconsin general obligation bonds and reaffirmed a similar rating on bonds previously issued by the state.
S&P said the AA ratings are a result of, in part, "the state's proven ability to make budget corrections in midyear in order to maintain fiscal balance with low-but-adequate general fund reserves."
An issuer of AA-rated bonds is defined by S&P as having a very strong capacity to meets its financial commitments. A higher bond rating helps a government borrow money at less-expensive terms.
"Wisconsin's economy has proven resilient in recent years, with a large and diverse manufacturing sector and unemployment rate below the national average," said S&P credit analyst John Kenward.
When Mayor McCue tells people he is tough on taxes, tell him okay right. While in Milwaukee County Government, he was known as part of the High Tax Tag Team.
The proposed tax freeze is an empty proposal (sometimes McCue says it is a promise and others it is just a proposal) since he cannot do anything about MMSD, MATC, (soon the RTA)
As McCue said, I only raised your 1.8% this year! Translation – I can and will raise your taxes as I please. If they are frozen in 2011, watch out for 2012 because I am not a tax hawk!
First, he wanted to raise them to 2%, I was at that meeting, and second McCue wanted to have a payroll increase for the Mayor’s salary.
Iceport votes from Cudahy One –
No mention of McCue seconding the motion, and voting to begin negotiations with sportsites, like he did.
No mention of all of his votes in favor of this project while as an alderman and member of the cda.
The tax levy increases under Mayor Hohenfeldt were from 2.9 % to 3.5 %, since
What were the budget surpluses under McCue? Oh, I forgot, he had two deficits, and you could probably predict that 2009 will once again come in as a deficit. That is POOR financial planning by the mayor
