Mayor Jeff Speaker supports Elmbrook referendum

Here’s the blurb MJS just wrote. This reporter is as confused as the mayor. First Speaker publicly endorsed the last $108.8 million referendum Elmbrook put forward. At least that’s what a reasonable person would conclude from the double-page spread that LEGACY published in the BrookfieldNOW. You remember it don’t you? It had Speaker’s endorsement in big bold type. (Good grief; I thought press releases were for further enquiry, not to write the story verbatim.)

Also the 7-member team Speaker alludes to in his release didn’t write this referendum. A group of arrogant school board members added to the team’s work. So considerable are the additions that I haven’t been able to track them. Repeated attempts to gain information from the Elmbrook school district have gotten me no where. They won’t give me the final recommendation of the team or the details of this referendum the school board approved.

THE ELMBROOK SCHOOL DISTRICT DOESN’T WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT THE BOARD PLAN IS VERY, VERY DIFFERENT FROM THE PLAN DRAWN BY THE GROUP THEY COMMISSIONED.

I know I’m shouting. I almost put it in bold!

Spread the word to those you know. The district shouldn’t be allowed this lie.

Even if the Mayor says so.
