The Wrecking Crew - Does this sound familiar?
The Wrecking Crew is a book that everyone from Manitowoc County should read.
It outlines a conservative mode of operations that skillfully describes our local dual office holder Bob Ziegelbauer.
Without getting too involved the author Thomas Frank describes a process by which conservatives present themselves as outsider reformers pointing to government waste and abuse. But when in power they themselves engage in waste and abuse while demolishing government infrastructure. When the results of their mismanagement manifests itself they say in effect... "See? We told you government was broken!"
The full description of that method accurately details what we have been seeing at County and eerily predicts every statement Bob has made and every move he has used to deconstruct government services - even though I'm sure the author does not know this small town pol.
A great read and an eye opener.
