But he should go.
The voters of the Waukesha School District (including a few who live outside the city limits) have elected Mr. Warren to be a member of the School Board six times. And for the school years '09-'10 and "10-'11 his fellow board members have elected him President of the School Board.
President of two of the largest and, arguably, most controversial enterprises in government in Waukesha County.
- Waukesha School '09-'10 Budget: $185.3 Million.
- Water Utility 2010 Budget $9.1 Million But with plans to borrow/beg $165 Million for a major capital commitment and a daunting procedural mountain to climb.
Is the talent pool so thin in Waukesha that one guy is needed at the top of the heap in both enterprises? For decades?
Maybe, he's a genius?
Then, again, maybe he is a small town hustler with Madoff-sized ego, who thinks he has so much finesse and charisma and knowledge that he is needed for both these jobs, that nobody else can do them?
Maybe he's a genius?
Was it genius that led him, as the School Board's Chairman of the Finance/Facilities Committee to bring to the rest of the School Board a bright idea to get something for nothing by jumping blind into a nifty new kind of investment. Shortly after the Board's Finance Chairman Warren led the group into this huge financial commitment, the investments turned out to be practically worthless, a turd in the punchbowl?
