MILWAUKEE – Jonathan Brostoff, candidate for the 19th Assembly District, released the following statement on Governor Walker’s decision to reverse a previous WEDC decision and preserve the Wisconsin Historic Preservation Tax Credit program:

“With too many of our city’s residents without access to the jobs they need, we need a multifaceted approach to promote economic development in our community — and allies in Madison that will partner to improve our state’s economic engine.”

“With over half of the state’s historic preservation tax credits supporting development in the City of Milwaukee, much in District 19, the state’s previous decision to suspend the credits was a mistake. While the Governor did the right thing in changing course to restore the program, we need a Legislature that won’t make these important programs susceptible to politics.”

“Our district is fortunate to have so many historic buildings — treasures that help us remember our city’s past and, if we have effective representation in Madison, can help create family-supporting jobs in our community.”
