MKE to Save a Ton of Money

Why is the City of Milwaukee going to save a ton of money?

Organizers upended the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday, as they told state delegations not to travel to Milwaukee, moved the convention from Fiserv Forum to the nearby Wisconsin Center and added satellite events around the country.

Delegates will cast votes remotely, even for the presidential nomination in what is shaping up to be an increasingly virtual event.   ...

Can you say "police overtime"?  No Democrat convention, no police overtime.

Oh, yah, well, also no 50,000 delegates occupying hotels, eating at restaurants, drinking at bars, touring the harbor, the Harley museum, the Art museum, the Zoo, ........

But mostly eating, drinking, and sleeping in hotels.

Think the Marcus folks have a bone to pick with Tom Perez & Co.?  No more free drinks for Barrett at the Pfister's bar.
