Deanna Alexander is the Milwaukee County Supervisor representing the 18th District. She is also very conservative.
Being conservative, she holds many of the same values as her other conservatives - bigotry, racism and the love of money, whether it comes from the Koch Brothers or from her buddy, Milwaukee County Emperor Chris Abele.
Being conservative, Alexander also likes to portray herself as being fiscally conservative and oh so ethical. Her hypocrisy regarding this has been exemplified by her using tax dollars to commit voter suppression.
She also showed her hypocrisy when she used her office to help raise funds for her father's funeral, even as she voted to deny funding for indigent burials.
As it turns out, Alexander seems to be in the habit of using her office for personal gain.
It was five years ago today that Alexander got fired by the State of Wisconsin when she used her position as an Income Maintenance Worker to try to help her get daycare benefits.
As the gentle reader might remember, due to Scott Walker's refusal to properly administer the Economic Support Program, the state had to take it over to avoid a class action lawsuit. In a most unusual arrangement, the workers remained county employees but worked under the supervision of the state.
It was during this time that Alexander worked for the program. Not only did she work there, she was a client, utilizing the daycare subsidies. However, she tried to use her position as an Income Maintenance Worker to gain benefits that were not available to the public. There was no fighting the accusation since they had the emails to prove it.
In other words, Alexander is a typical, run of the mill conservative Republican.
If the voters in the 18th District have the desire for clean government and good government, that their tax money is being used appropriately and that their interests - as opposed to those of the 1% - are being represented, they need to vote for Martha De La Rosa.
