Amen, aldermen

The Common Council's Public Works Committee delayed action on renewing a contract to sell water to Menomonee Falls until it shows a little more willingness to participate in other areas of regional cooperation, such as transit and housing.

Good.

Water is Milwaukee's ace. Waukesha County already is happily sucking jobs and wealth out of Milwaukee County, leaving its people (especially minority) behind. Playing the water card isn't popular with the pro-suburban element, but it's necessary to force Waukesha County to realize that cooperation isn't all "take."
