City of Milwaukee Cuts Social Service Dollars: Children to be Affected

What can you say?

The Milwaukee Common Council committee believes that it's more important to redevelop old factory sites than to Save the Children.

Ald. Joe Davis asked that the funds be moved to make them available for the possible purchase and development of the 82-acre former Tower Automotive site on W. Capitol Drive.

...The committee heard pleas from Barbara Notestein, director of the Safe & Sound crime-fighting initiative, and others not to reduce funds for youth-serving agencies next year, but the $200,000 cut remained, leaving a $1.2 million allotment.

Guess it's not GWBush, after all.
