Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


School choice advocates are urging Gov. Jim Doyle not to veto funding for the program. The state teacher's union is urging him to kill the budget provisions expanding Milwaukee's school choice program, which were added into the budget by the Republican controlled legislature.

The school choice advocacy group is being led by Milwaukee Mayor John Norquist, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker, Milwaukee Archbishop Timothy Dolan, and Howard Fuller.

During his campaign for govenor, Doyle established his headquarters in Milwaukee and worked very hard to win over the votes of city residents. If he vetoes funding for the program, that level of support may not be there next time around.
