A Milwaukee County panel shot down the pending contract between the county and Dallas-based MV Transportation to operate the Milwaukee County Transit System, calling the bidding process “arbitrary and unreasonable.”

The RFP process was so flawed, they found, that an intent to award a contract based on it cannot be made. The decision to award the half-billion dollar contract to MV was reversed.

This is a huge blow for Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele, who has championed MV, and his aides’ handing of the RFP process.

Some background info.

Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
