"Our goal right now is that we don't want anybody to ever pay higher taxes," he said.
Walker also supported a decision made by the Elected Officials Salary Review Committee that recommends he and other elected officials get salary increases in 2011. In the previous two years, the commissioners received a 38 percent increase; the new raise brings that total to about 45 percent. If re-elected, Walker would receive a salary just shy of $100,000 annually.
In addition, local governments are anticipating large increases in payments to the Public Employees Retirement System..."

Well, if Walker's $100K a year salary (+38% in 2 yrs), doesn't bankrupt the county, PERS...WILL!
Cummon Folks...wake up.
Throw these Bums out with their unions, and start again...FRESH!
