It is refreshing to see that the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (MJS) has finally begun to peer into the outrageous spending at Milwaukee Area Technical College and the lax oversight of yet another unelected board given the power to unilaterally tax the citizens of the MATC district.
However, the MJS could have saved a lot time, effort, and money by simply reprinting the $60,000 study Citizens for Responsible Government (CRG) did - FOUR YEARS AGO!
Compare the latest MJS article against what was already fully researched and published by CRG waaaay back in 2006.
