Holperin Pacifying Unions

"Central Wisconsin Democrats cast Ohio voters' rejection of a law weakening public employee unions' collective bargaining abilities as a sign that Republicans have overreached Wednesday night.

State Rep. Donna Seidel, D-Wausau, and state Sen. Jim Holperin, D-Conover, took questions at a forum partially organized by the Wisconsin AFL-CIO labor union at the University of Wisconsin Marathon County." Source: Local union workers criticize jobs session | Wausau Daily Herald |

Pulaski Wis: How To Hide A Meeting From Tax Payers

Been busy with my new job but since I am from Pulaski,(psssst, don't tell anyone), I seen this little tidbit in the Green Bay Press.

"PULASKI — The village will hold a special board meeting at 10 a.m. Monday at the Village Hall to discuss options to fill the village president vacancy. Village President Ronald Kryger died Thursday evening after suffering a massive heart attack while working at Village Hall. The meeting is open to the public." Source: Meeting to address village president vacancy | Green Bay Press Gazette |

First, Mr Kryger, RIP.

Second I understand the city of Pulaski needs to fill the vacancy but what are they trying to pull here. A meeting at 10:00 am to discuss the matter? What about the 90% of the tax payers who are working at 10:00 am? Seems the powers at be in that little polish town are trying to stack the deck on who should take over until an election can be called. Maybe their by laws have someone suceed Mr Kryger but this doesn't pass the smell test. You have to be from there to understasnd. Will the old village president who lost to Kryger try to take over his old seat? 

Why not a second meeting Monday night? Wonder how the tax payers will end up paying for something more in the future because of meeting at 10:00 am on a Monday.
