Board Rightly Postpones Discussions on Tax for Basketball Arena
County Board Postpones Discussions on Tax for Basketball Arena
A majority of members of the Milwaukee County Board have denied moving forward with a resolution speaking to whether taxes that would support building a new basketball arena in downtown Milwaukee should be considered.
“I am absolutely against taxing the public to build a basketball arena, and if that question ever comes before us, I intend to vote it down,” said Supervisor Alexander.
“A basketball arena is important to some people, but we must prioritize. I sincerely hope that local leaders supporting building a new arena will offer more options than simply taking it from our constituents, because I will not be supporting taxing our residents for this purpose,” Supervisor Alexander said.
