Considering what I’ve written about in the past I don’t know how I CAN’T write about the saga of the Pit Bull ban in West Allis.
As you’ve probably read on the AP Wire the City President exercised his first veto on a proposal to ban Pit Bulls in West Allis (it banned any new pit bulls but allowed current Pit Bulls to stay).

A vote is supposed to occur very soon. I’ll keep you updated on anything that I see in the news.
