Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is sticking by a plan that could mean up to $14,000 in compensation cuts for state workers. After a campaign rally here Monday, as Barrett attempts to energize his supporters ahead of Tuesday's recall election, he stood by his plan to "Put Madison on a Diet," a 67-page document he issued during his 2010 run for governor. And yet the document is nowhere to be found on Barrett's website. Perhaps, writes Dustin Hurst, the reason the mayor is mum on the topic is that it could offend some of his most fervent supporters: public workers and their unions.
