Evers begins to stock his cabinet

My column in the Washington County Daily News this week is about Tony Evers and his cabinet choices. Here’s a little piece.

In looking at the list of Evers’ appointments so far, one thing really sticks out. Except for Pfaff, every appointee is from Milwaukee or Madison. This makes complete sense when one considers how Evers won the election. His narrow victory was thanks to overwhelming liberal turnout in Dane and Milwaukee counties. The Democratic power base is increasingly concentrated in these two counties, so it stands to reason that a Democratic administration would be filled with operatives from these geographies.

The political divisions in Wisconsin, like in the rest of America, are increasingly along the lines of rural vs. urban instead of left vs. right. At least for the next four years, Wisconsin’s urban interests are going to be in control of the executive branch.

    Madison and Milwaukee liberalism is a wart to the rest of the state that need to be burned off before it spreads.

  2. Le Roi du Nord

    Choice for DNR Secretary is a great move.  Good guy, real smart, believes in science.

  3. Kevin Scheunemann


    Clearly, a step down from what we have.

    It could have been worse. Evers could have appointed at total leftist environmental,Marxist loon.

    He will still eat on sewer plants, hurting the water bill for poor in suburban communities and let MMSD dump/pollute with impunity because the cabinet is almost all Milwaukee.

    Buckle up, there will be war on how burbs have to clean water to impossible, counterproductive standards, only to have the clean water dirty back up when it reaches MMSD plant at Lake Michigan.

    We call that liberal insanity.

  4. Le Roi du Nord

    Well, even walker said Cole was a great pick.  And seeing as walker appointed Cole to the NRB, that probably makes some sense.

    Could you please tell us what, “He will still eat on sewer plants” is supposed to imply?  And while you are at it, explain to all the good readers out there why you are opposed to clean water?  Thanks.

  5. Kevin Scheunemann


    That should have been “beat”.

    No one is against clean water. You are a disingenuous piece of rotten flotsam when you say that.

    I’m against cranking the current clean water standards down with 10 times more stringency with great cost and no benefit. That is the part you leave out!

    As usual JSOnline radical liberal bias article leaves out there is little to no penalty for MMSD dumping raw sewage constantly!

  6. Kevin Scheunemann

    …and you posted an article saying MMSD’s wastewater permit has “mandates” in them…. did you denounce those liberal pricks at JSOnline for getting that wrong?

    …. you were a constant jack wagon saying there are no mandates in wastewater permit.

    I do enjoy it when you show what kind of hypocrite you truly are, all on your own.

  7. Le Roi du Nord

    Poor choice of words by the JS.  But is that word in the permit?  Betcha can’t find it.  Odd that you would condemn the JS as being biased, yet rely on their misunderstanding of permit conditions as evidence of your righteousness.  It must be tough living in that noggin of yours.

    Just a week or so ago your were all against clean water for the poor folks in Kewaunee County, and supported farmers that polluted private wells.  You are nothing if not consistently inconsistent.

    And calm down, name calling doesn’t make your feeble arguments any more attractive.


  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    “Poor choice of words”?

    That is the most hilarious thing I have heard!

    Even radical liberal newspapers agree with conservatives that DNR wastewater permits are a series of “mandates”.

    How super lunatic fringe are you to deny that?

    You might be more fringe than insane lunatics on this.

    You’re wasting your time.  The last time this came up, Leroy was proven wrong and ran out of that thread faster than Bill Clinton to an Intern.
