Can Milwaukee, the Cream City, become more of a high-tech cyber city? Mayor Cavalier Johnson and others are promising to try to make that happen.
It may be hard to believe forty years after the last new episode aired, but Johnson insists it's true. He says when he meets people from other parts of the country, their biggest misconception about the city is we're still a community of people like those shown in the TV program Laverne and Shirley.
"I've never even seen that show. I've heard of it, of course. But I personally have never seen it. But that's what people think about, right?" Johnson says.
Johnson says updating the image of Milwaukee to this century would help in many ways, including creating more high-tech jobs in the area. The mayor and others say they're not expecting Milwaukee to become another tech mecca like Boston, Austin or Silicon Valley. But he says he'd like to see more people get good jobs in a growing sector.
