According to Channel 10 News, Bishop Clark released a statement yesterday saying,
I have known Dolan for many, many years and consider him a tremendously gifted colleague with a keen intelligence, affable personality and warm and effective leadership style. I very much look forward to working with him in the ongoing work of the dioceses of New York State.
Since our bishop is so keen on working with New York City's new archbishop, perhaps he could ask him for some pointers on fund raising for our Catholic schools.
In 2007 the archbishop launched a $105 million capital campaign, mainly to support Milwaukee's Catholic schools. He leaves less than halfway through that campaign with $57 million in pledges already in hand.
The Archdiocese of Milwaukee has almost twice as many Catholics as DOR. If Timothy Dolan could raise $105 million for Catholic schools there he should be able to show Matthew Clark how to raise $50 million or so here.
